Bryan Singer hasn’t exactly been shy about dropping “X-Men: Apocalypse” plot points like their hot on Instagram.

This trend continued today as Singer put up this image what appears to be an abandoned sewer system or ancient crypt or musty wine cellar.


Shooting Caliban's place of "business" #Xmen #XMenApocalypse

Did you catch it? “X-Men: Apocalypse” was filming something to do with Caliban. Who is Caliban? Imagine a mutant with the ability to locate other mutants. One possessed with the good looks of a Nosferatu mixed with either a grey alien or a roided-out gargoyle. Now give him a King Kong complex, inferiority issues, and enough rage to power a tiny fusion reactor. That’s Caliban.

While the mutant HAS batted for the good guys, most of his time in the X-Men has been spent kidnapping women — namely Kitty Pryde and Jubilee — for companionship and being a lackey for Apocalypse/Fake Apocalypse. Based on Movie!Caliban’s business locale, it’s a safe bet we’re getting the villainous version.

But in what capacity? Caliban has been a Hellhound minion, the Horseman of Death, and the Horseman of Pestilence on various occasions. Whatever title he may hold, one thing’s for certain. You can bet Jubilee is gonna get kidnapped.
