According to a report by aceshowbiz.com, the scientist may feature in the third and final Wolverine movie. The scientist’s goes by the civilian name of Nathaniel Essex.
Details about one of the most powerful supervillains in the Marvel Cinematic Universe appearing opposite Logan (Wolverine) are included on the audio commentary featuring Simon Kinberg and director Bryan Singer. It is attached to the digital HD release of X-Men: Apocalypse.
