Oscar Isaac will be Apocalypse in X-Men: Apocalypse

Oscar Isaac has been on the up and up the last few years. He appeared in Nicolas Winding Refn’s masterpiece Drive, played the titular character in The Coen brother’s Inside Llewyn Davis, starred in J.C Chandor‘s A Most Violent Year and he’ll be seen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  Isaac was also approached by Marvel to play Doctor Strange but turned it down. Maybe because he will have a large recurring role in the Star Wars movies and didn’t want to be tied down to two mega franchises. Whatever the case is, the man has no shortage of work and has the luxury to say, ‘no’ to particular projects. He did, however, say yes to playing Apocalypse in the next X-Men movie.

 

We reported back in September that Apocalypse was coming (click HERE to read all about the big bad and how the new movies ignore the first three X-Men movies) and that the movie will take place in the 80’s.  Director Bryan Singer will be bringing Michael Fassbender back as Magneto, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique and James McAvoy as Professor X as well as Nicholas Hoult and Evan Peters as the beast and quicksilver. The latest out of camp Singer is that producers are looking for young actors to play Cyclops and Jean Grey with Ben Hardy, Charlie Rowe and Timothee Chalamet rounding out the Cyclops picks and Chloe Grace Moretz, Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld for Jean Grey.

 

Thought of as a god, Apocalypse is the very first human to carry the mutant gene and was born over 5,000 years ago in the Middle East. Made popular in the 90’s, Apocalypse’s abilities seemed to be vast and virtually infinite, more suiting to the situation than anything. Over the years his character has changed so drastically that it is an exercise in futility to guess what they are going with. Egyptian god Apocalypse? Clone Apocalypse? Child Apocalypse? Well, maybe not that last one…

 

X-Men: Apocalypse will be released May 27, 2016.
