Fans were treated to a pleasant surprise in yesterday's final X-Men: Apocalypse trailerwhen Cyclops said the team had gotten some help fighting off rogue soldiers, and then we see Wolverine's unmistakable claws popping out of his knuckles. Wolverine's cameo will most likely be entertaining, but we know his appearance won't be central to the Apocalypse storyline.

Be that as it may, but in a new interview with Empire, director Bryan Singer has teased how there's more to Wolverine's appearance than some people may have thought.

Singer said:

Make of that what you want. I will say, it's not simple. There's something more pivotal that occurs with that. It hints to a sequence that again fits within the canon of all six movies, and the birth of a new direction. It's not insignificant, nor is it simply just a throw-in. It's not the only shot you're gonna see, let's put it that way.

It's too soon to tell what this "new direction" means for the entire X-Men franchise, but it's somehow reassuring to learn that every scene in the film, even Wolverine's cameo, fits into the bigger X-Men spectrum. If anything, we at least know that each sequence has been well thought out and is worth the watch.

We'll soon learn what Wolverine's cameo means in X-Men: Apocalypse when the film hits theaters on May 27. After that, we'll see Hugh Jackman play the titular character for the last time in Wolverine 3, which is slated for release on March 3, 2017.
