It seems like Caliban the albino mutant will be appearing in “X-Men: Apocalypse” after all.
Bryan Singer, who is the screenwriter, producer and director of the movie, teased fans with the appearance of the Morlock in his latest Instagram post.
Though Caliban wasn’t seen in the photo, several crew members were shown in the photo alongside Singer, who was presumably directing the scene. The photo came with the caption, “Shooting Caliban’s place of “business”.”
Caliban, who is named after the exiled Shakespeare character of the same name, is the creation of Chris Claremont and Dave Cockrum. First appeared in 1981’s “Uncanny X-Men” #148, the albino mutant was created to have very pale complexion as well as huge yellow eyes. He is one of the founding members of Morlocks, which is a group of homeless and abandoned mutants who chose to live underground due to their grotesque appearance.
Already having the power to sense mutants within a 40km radius, Caliban changed his identity to Death after his powers were amplified by Apocalypse. Caliban was given superhuman strength, speed, stamina, durability, reflexes, and agility.
“X-Men: Apocalypse” will see Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicholas Hoult reprising their roles as Magneto, Professor X, Mystique, and Beast. Additional cast include Oscar Isaac as Apocalypse, Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler, Evan Peters as Quicksilver, and Lucas Till as Havok. It is unknown who will be portraying Caliban.
Fans won’t have to wait long to see “X-Men: Apocalypse” in cinemas, as it is slated for release exactly one year from now on 27th May 2016.
