While Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse was not the most warmly received superhero film of 2016, it did feature one moment that surprised a handful of fans. During Apocalypse’s visit the Charles Xavier’s school, the sinister villain killed Havoc, a character who had been part of the rebooted series since he first appeared X-Men: First Class with actor Lucas Till in the role. Now, Till has opened up to about his characters death in a conversation with CinemaBlend, where he shares a surprisingly enthusiastic response to his characters fate.
Till explained his feelings regarding his character’s death.
I thought it was really cool. I feel like people are always like ‘Oh, it’s X-Men. It’s X-Men you can always come back.’ But I was like ‘No, I think it’s cool that I died.’ I think people were kind of nervous to tell me that I died but I thought it was really neat.
Of course, fans know that when it comes to comic books and films based on them, death may not always be permanent. Lucas Till addressed this fact and the potential for his character to return.
But also it is X-Men and you don’t really see me die and if I can withstand cosmic energy coming from my chest I might be able to withstand some extreme levels of heat. Maybe that level fell just right so that maybe I survived, I don’t know. I thought it was cool though.

Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.
X-Men: Apocalypse is now available on DVD, Blu-Ray, 3D Blu-Ray and Digital HD.
