Following the post credit sting of X-Men Apocalypse that gave serious X-Men fanboys a real moment of joy, it seems that Mister Sinister will be next to tangle with the mutant heroes.
The rumours have been flying – including the possibility that we’ll see him pop up in the upcoming Wolverine 3 – and adding his name to the bag of snakes is none other than Bryan friggin’ Cranston.
When discussing his dream villain role on AMC’s Geeking Out, the man set the record straight; ““I’m interested in creating a role. I’d love to do something that hasn’t been done before. Lex Luthor, there’s been a lot of that. I’ve been asked to take a look at Commissioner Gordon. It’s like, I would be one in several… and I would kind of like to carve out a new identity. Mister Sinister has always been someone… that would be very cool.”
This follows Cranston’s comments at New York Comic Con earlier this year that suggested something similar.
Wolverine 3 is slated for a 3rd March 2017 release, so expect a trailer to paint a clearer picture over the next couple of months. Whatever happens with that one, Apocalypse’s tease makes it pretty damn clear that a Sinister presence will be felt in the X-Men universe soon.
