Known as Horsemen Of Apocalypse, theyre a crew of mutants enlisted as henchmen by the films colossal baddie - Apocalypse. Sometimes theyre involved of their own volition, other times theyre kidnapped for their powers, which Apocalypse often augments via his unique grasp on technology, basically turning them into super-duper mutants. The quartet adopt the titles Famine, Death, Pestilence and War - with the mutants in question constantly changing, depending on the comic incarnation. Apocalypse is a sneaky devil, enlisting a roster of well-known superhero names at various points in the canon; The Hulk becomes War, Angel becomes Death (clever), and Wolverine as a later version of Death! Its highly unlikely Singer and co. will have Wolvie changing sides, although maybe for a spell itd be a welcome recipe for inciting much dramatic tension - especially if he comes face-to-face with a young Jean Grey, turning tables and such. The unique trait of Apocalypses Horsemen is their fluctuating nature, meaning any mutant can be coerced into duty. Itll provide the filmmakers tons of scope to cultivate his band of evil wrongdoers - handpicking any mutants from a heaving back catalogue. With Channing Tatum having inked a deal with the studio he's a good bet to appear as Gambit in the movie, and this could hint towards the third cycle of Horsemen - featuring Gambit, Gazer, Polaris and Sunfire.
