Captain America: Civil War is being released in less than two weeks and everyone is aboard the hype train. However, let us not forget that X-Men: Apocalypse is coming out three weeks after Captain America: Civil War. Obviously not as exciting as the release of Captain America: Civil War (at least for me), but the hype will probably begin around a week after the release of Captain America: Civil War.
Speaking of the upcoming Marvel flick, this movie will also have a bunch of heroes and one of the most powerful villains from the Marvel universe: Apocalypse. You would assume we know all the characters set to appear in the movie. Well apparently that's not true, as Bryan Singer has just posted an official first picture of a here fore unannounced character on Instagram.
First Look at The Blob!
Last August, it was reported that The Blob was sighted on the set of X-Men: Apocalypse. I didn't really pay close attention to it, but now that we have this awesome photo, I will talk about it. Let me just say that the Blob looks absolutely amazing and a hell of a lot better than the previous adaptation featured in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The image features The Blob on his back looking pretty beat up. It seems safe to say he was just beaten in a cage fight by Angel. The caption on Bryan Singer's post reads: "Mutant Martial Arts. Light as a feather." This version of the Blob also looks pretty similar to Kingpin which I find a bit amusing.
How Big Will The Blob's Role Be in the Film?
The Blob may be in the movie, but his role is most likely very minimal. He probably has one fight with Angel in the beginning of the movie. This will probably be the way we are introduced to Angel in the film as a way to showcase his fighting abilities. Remember: There is going to be a lot going on in the movie and it will be packed with a lot of characters. We will have to see how Fox handles all these characters in the film. It worked in X-Men: Days of Future Past, so we only hope that it will work here.
Will This Be The Last Time We See The Blob?
Of course not! The Blob is a big X-Men character and we will most likely see him in other movies. It's not like he's lying dead in the picture — he was most likely just defeated in the scene. There are only a few confirmed films ahead of X-Men: Apocalypse, so it's hard to tell where else we could see The Blob waddle in.
There is little to no way we will see him in the final Wolverine film as we had already seen him in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. However, the Deadpool sequel would be a pretty good film for The Blob to appear in. Wouldn't it be hilarious to see Deadpool just roasting The Blob with fat jokes? That would be awesome!
