• Snowbird To Appear In X-Men:Apocalypse? [FAN SPECULATION]



    Bryan Singer, director of the upcoming X-Men sequel X-Men: Apocalypse, recently sent the internet into a frenzied wave of celluloid Alphan speculation when he posted a photograph on Instagram from the set of the upcoming film.

    The photograph was captioned with:

    " My brilliant first A.D. #JoshMcLagen#Titanic#Avatar#XmenDaysofFuturePast
    #Xmen#XMenApocalypse masterfully puppeteers a mutant guided incoming owl. Odd, I know. "

    While the 'mutant guided' part strongly hints that it won't be Narya, and more likely a normal animal controlled by Xavier, (or Moonstar or Karma after the announcement of a New Mutants film) the film doesn't have to stay true to the comics and Snowbird could well be a mutant on screen, keeping her for use by Fox rather than Marvel Studios.

    All in all, it is unlikely but it's got people talking about Alpha Flight again...

      If it was her,yeah that's definetly great publicity. However, if your make her a mutant and remove her goddess roots you basically changed her character a great deal. It wouldn't even be Narya anymore as that heritage is such a big part of her

      Yeah. The x-men movies have a great deal similarities to that line of books then the 616 universe. They would ignore the banshee aspect though and could see them just giving moonstone new powers. Not the first time they have given or taken powers away.

      then again it's probably just her telepathically controlling a normal owl which is her regular powers anyways.

      That is a very Snowbirdular image.

      No way it's Snowbird. What mutant likes to use animals as familiars et al, that's who it's about.

      Has Snowbird ever showed up in AoA? That'd be a little weird if she hadn't, but showed up here.

      Precedent: A non-mutant showed up in one of the movies as a 'mutant': Juggernaut in X3. (They never said he was a mutant there, but if you didn't know he wasn't, the movie wouldn't correct you.)
      (Also, in my re-reading of New Warriors, he shows up in the Sphinx's timeline, and is outright called a mutant there. That's irrelevant, just thought I'd mention it.)

      The Valkyrie aspect?
      Which came in much later to the character anyway. Much like Rogue's strength / flight, etc...

      Falcon is the closest I can come up with off the top of my head; but not only is he not a mutant (that I know of), but he's already in the MCU. (Which knocks him out of X-Men movies. Unless he's Quicksilver. Which he isn't.)

      Remember in X2 when Wolverine goes to "his creation place" (i.e. Canada), he sees a white wolf. Wouldn't it be cool if it was Snowbird and she had been tracking him all along?!?! That being said, she isn't a mutant, therefore, I doubt it's her....

      In my head, it always was!
