Wait, Was That Cyclops in X-Men Origins: Wolverine?!
Of all the various X-Men I was expecting to see show up in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, I wasn't expecting Cyclops! Remember that promo Fox is doing next week involving three separate 60-second TV spots that they're showing starting on Sunday? Well, Fox aired a 12-second promo for the promo, and at first glance, it wasn't even worth mentioning. Nothing new to see, right? Wait a second, was that Cyclops?! I've never seen James Marsden mentioned anywhere or even heard that Cyclops would show up, but there he is, right there in the promo! Did they just show his cameo or is Cyclops actually in this a lot more?
After doing some quick research, I found out that it was confirmed last May that Australian actor Tim Pocock would be playing Scott Summers aka Cyclops in the movie. So indeed, he is in it, and that's our first glimpse of him. Of course, tune in on Sunday to see the first of the three 60-second segments.
Watch the promo footage from X-Men Origins: Wolverine:
Wolverine lives a mutant life, seeks revenge against Victor Creed (who will later become Sabretooth) for the death of his girlfriend, and ultimately ends up going through the mutant Weapon X program.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine is directed by South African filmmaker Gavin Hood, of the Oscar winner Tsotsi and Rendition previously. The script was written by veteran screenwriter David Benioff, of 25th Hour, Troy, and The Kite Runner previosuly. The character of Wolverine was first created by Len Wein and John Romita Sr. back in 1974. Fox will debut X-Men Origins: Wolverine in theaters everywhere on May 1st.
