LOGAN Director James Mangold Explains Why We WON'T See Mister Sinister In The Movie

Despite that big "Essex Corp." Easter Egg at the end of X-Men: Apocalypse, Logan director James Mangold has shed some light on why he decided against adding Mister Sinister to the mix in the film.

At the end of X-Men: Apocalypse, an employee of Essex Corp. could be seen retrieving samples of Wolverine's DNA. As a result, most of us have assumed that Mister Sinister would somehow factor into Logan as the one pulling the strings behind Zander Rice (the creator or X-23). Well, it sounds like we can forget catching so much as a glimpse of the iconic villain based on comments from James Mangold.

Talking to CinemaBlend about why Sinister isn't in the movie, explained that he wanted to avoid, "the kind of operatic highly-costumed, stroboscopic villainy" that's usually part of comic book adaptations. 
"[T]hat’s not in this movie. Everything is kind of as real as we can make it," he added in regards to Sinister. "The movie is trying to kind of take a step backward from that kind of spectacle, so that we get another kind of gain, you know. There’s that loss, but the gain is that the movie feels extremely real and is — as one person who saw the film said to me, ‘I feel like I could go down the street and run into that Wolverine.’ Meaning that this is in my world, not some shiny other world. This is actually taking place in my world." That's not to say Sinister won't be mentioned, but it's doubtful!

Will we ever get to see him on the big screen? Deadpool 2 and X-Force are possible, but that Essex Corp. Easter Egg had to mean something. Right? Let us now your theories in the comments section.
