Some superhero sidekicks are so good that they need more screen time of their own, such as Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman, Idris Elba’s Heimdall, and more.
With the release of The Mummy trailer, we got a good glimpse of the movie’s namesake in action. X-Men: Apocalypse had Oscar Isaac’s character first start his attack on humanity from that part of the world.

The X-Men movie franchise has been around for 16 years and nine movies if you count Deadpool. And through that time, there’s only been one guiding rule: There’s only one Wolverine. Australian superstar Hugh Jackman has wielded the feral Canadian’s razor sharp claws since the very first X-Men movie in 2000, and he’s appeared in every installment made since, including X-Men: Apocalypse, which opens in theaters this weekend. (The end is in sight though: Jackman has already announced plans to retire after Wolverine’s yet-to-be titled third solo adventure.)
