Los Angeles (US): immovable mutant, Blob, will reportedly appear in the sequel to X-Men: Apocalypse. The detail about the movie comes from an Instagram user named Benjamin Malartre Bureau, who shared a photo, which indicates that Blob will make appearance in the upcoming movie, reported Aceshowbiz.
The picture features a circular metal charm with the words “APOCALYPSE” carved on it.
Through the caption of the photo, Bureau claimed that he was on the set of the movie in Montreal along with cast members such as Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Ben Hardy (Angel), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler) and Nicholas Hoult (Beast).

Blop depicter is a “French Canadian dude 540 lbs (one solid big fat guy),” according to Bureau. Fred J Dukes aka Blob was a member of a circus sideshow.
When X-Men offers him to join the team, Fred was uninterested until he saw Jean Grey, and agreed to go along with them to get to know her. His obnoxious attitude makes other X-Men members hate him but cannot let him walk out knowing their secret identities.
The big-body mutant made his cinematic debut in Gavin Hood’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine. He was played by Kevin Durand, who wore a fat-suit to get the look of the mutant in the comic books.
Fans have to wait until X-Men: Apocalypse arrives in US theaters on May 26, 2016 to see the new version of Blob.
