Oscar Isaac On His Prep For X-MEN: APOCALYPSE

Actor Oscar Isaac discusses his preparation methods for playing the titular villain in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse..."the embodiment of the Second Coming with the Four Horseman and all. That's scary shit."

In a new interview with Esquire Magazine, Star Wars actor Oscar Isaac briefly touches on his preparation to play the maniacal mutant, En Sabah Nur aka Apocalypse in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse. It sounds as if Isaac is taking his prep for the role very seriously.  "You find something that makes it interesting for you.  "With X-Men, it's about why this woman who invented Apocalypse, [writer] Louise Simonson, she was tasked with: make a new arch-villain. She said, ‘OK, I'll make the embodiment of the Second Coming with the Four Horseman and all.' That's scary shit. So I'm curious about that. What's the philosophical expression behind the apocalypse? What apocalypse means, which comes from the Greek for ‘to reveal.’ To lift back the curtain."
 

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE | Bryan Singers returns to direct another installment in 20th Century Fox's X-Men franchise from a script penned by  Simon Kinberg, Dan Harris, and Michael Dougherty.  According to Singer, the film will focus on the "origin of mutants" but will primarily "take place in 1983."  The film stars James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Evan Peters (Quicksilver), Oscar Isaac (Apocalypse), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Rose Byrne (Moira McTaggart) Ian McKellen (Magneto), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler), Ben Hardy (Angel) and Lana Condor (Jubilee).  The film will be released on May 26, 2016.
