Following the success Marvel Studios has had with post-credits scenes, 20th Century Fox has employed the same technique with their X-Men movies. That’s how The Wolverine foreshadowed the depressing future to come, it’s how X-Men: Days of Future Past introduced Apocalypse and even Deadpool had some fun with audiences that way in his own movie. X-Men: Apocalypse is continuing this trend by introducing a new character, according to Simon Kinberg. Here’s what the producer said regarding the post-credits scene:
It’s a nod toward potentially a lot of different movies. I mean certainly the Wolverine movie is related to what happens at the end of it, but there’s also another character that’s introduced, at least in name, in the tag and he could show up in any host of different X-Men films. Maybe a Gambit movie, maybe another X-Men movie.

Kinberg revealed this during an interview with Collider, but didn’t provide any more details as to who this character is. With X-Men: Apocalypse serving as both a conclusion to the current batch of X-Men movies and the birth of new ones, it’s hard to say who this new player might be. For now, we’ve gathered up our top guesses, from brand new folks to re-imagined versions of people we’ve already met.

Mister Sinister
Mister Sinister
The X-Men movies have used a lot of the mutant superhero team’s adversaries, but one of the major ones that still hasn’t had his time to shine is Nathaniel Essex, a.k.a. Mister Sinister. Essex originally lived in the 19th century as a geneticist whose experiments explored mutation, but were considered by others to be immoral and dangerous. Fortunately for him, he eventually met Apocalypse, who transformed him into an immortal being with powers like telekinesis, energy projection, shapeshifting, regeneration and more. There hasn’t been any hint of Mister Sinister being in X-Men: Apocalypse, but that doesn’t mean En Sabah Nur hasn’t paid him a visit in this continuity as well, thus paving the way for a future appearance. Mister Sinister can be a great villain in the X-Men movie universe, and because he’s long-lived, he can pop up in any movie necessary, whether it’s Gambit, Wolverine 3, New Mutants, etc. With his abilities and own resources (we’re guessing he’s ridiculously wealthy), he could be a formidable threat to just one of the heroes or an entire team.
