It looks like a familiar enemy of the X-Men is returning for Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse…
The Blob, AKA Fred J Dukes, who was played in X-Men: Origins – Wolverine by Kevin Durand, is apparently making his BIG return.
Instagram user Benjamin Malartre Bureau, was on a four-day set tour of the movie, posted an image after he returned from the set with a few details (below). He also said that the character will be played by an unnamed 540-pound local man, so we’re assuming his role will probably be a cameo only..
It’s cool that he’s back though and it makes us wonder what other treats Singer has in store for us.
Arriving in theaters on May 27, 2016, Apocalypse is set in 1983 and finds the mutants, including Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and Charles (James McAvoy), taking sides as the godlike Apocalypse plots world destruction.
X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 27, 2016.
