Bryan Singer Promises More of the New Mutants in 'Apocalypse' Deleted Scenes


If you weren't already aware, X-Men: Apocalypse is an overstuffed film with tons of characters competing for screen time. Apparently, Bryan Singer ended up cutting a whole lot of stuff with the new mutants introduced in this film, all of which we'll get to see eventually, though not cut back into the film DoFP Rogue Cut style. And yes, in case you were wondering, there was a scene where Jubilee actually used her powers.

While speaking with Fandango—as reported on by ComicBook.com (link below)—Singer revealed that most of the stuff he cut involved the younger mutants, though it was all really good stuff we'll get to see eventually, he promises. He also says that the Rogue Cut was a unique animal and he doesn't plan to do the same with Apocalypse...

"I'm not a big fan of director's cuts or extended editions, I never have been," Singer told Fandango. "In the case of Apocalypse, I removed what would be considered a conventional amount from the movie to protect what we call the collective experience of the feature theatrically. How it feels pace wise and movement wise."

In the film, you'll see many of the young X-Men heading out to the mall for a day away from their mutant-focused life to just act like regular kids - but it's a pretty quick sequence. It's one that doesn't include that record store shot of the Dazzler record that was posted to instagram, or the Nightcrawler brain-freeze line in a recent TV spot.

Another scene focuses on the brotherly relationship between Scott and Alex Summers that Singer said is "a good scene" but slowed things down a bit too much. "I don't want the audience to feel that [slow down]."

Fans will also have to turn to the deleted scenes to see Jubilee's powers in use - they didn't make the cut of the film.

"We do have a moment where Jubilee uses her powers that you'll see on the DVD. I wanted more Jubilee," Singer said.

So that's exciting. Why was she even in the movie? Honestly, I just don't understand this movie.
