X-Men: Apocalypse’s first trailer seems to be getting a lot of mixed reactions from fans. Snaking the continuity of the X-Men franchise around so that it’s now reintroducing younger versions of the characters from the first film is extremely tricky, but the biggest problem with it may be the biggest reason for the franchise’s success: Hugh Jackman. His Wolverine has been the backbone of the franchise and was the foundation of X-Men: Days of Future Past, which knit the past and current casts. The problem is that Hugh Jackman is, after waffling back and forth, pretty set on only doing one more solo Wolverine film and then he’s done. My understanding was that he was also going to be in X-Men: Apocalypse, because DOFP left Wolverine in a very odd cliffhanger that wouldn’t seem resolvable in a solo film (which from everything I hear is going to somehow adapt Mark Millar’s “Old Man Logan” storyline). The trailer gives no indication of Wolverine’s involvement and, combined with seven previous films of bendy time continuity, has me worried that the franchise may have reached critical mass. Don’t let that stop you from examining these host of photos from the trailer and the very cool first poster for the film, which is due to release May 26, 2015.
