When we got our first look at X-Men: Apocalypse's titular villain way back when, fans widely ridiculed what Bryan Singer and Fox had done to the iconic character. Now, poor Oscar Isaac has made it clear that suiting up as the X-Men's foe was not much fun, and it sounds like being on set was a hellish experience from start to finish.
"Apocalypse, that was excruciating," he revealed during a recent interview with GQ. "I didn't know when I said yes that that was what was going to be happening. That I was going to be encased in glue, latex and a 40-pound suit -- that I had to wear a cooling mechanism at all times."
"I was like, ‘oh, I get to work with these great actors that I like so much,’ but I couldn’t even see them because I couldn’t move my head. And I had to sit on a specially designed saddle, because that’s the only thing I could really sit on, and I would be rolled into a cooling tent in-between takes."
The actor didn't go into detail about what it was like working with Bryan Singer - who was essentially fired from Bohemian Rhapsody and has recently come under fire for being chosen to hire Red Sonja despite a number of sexual abuse allegations - but made it clear that he didn't enjoy anything about becoming part of the X-Men franchise.
"And every time I moved, it was just like rubber and plastic squeaking, so everything I said had to be dubbed later as well," he added. "And then getting it off was the worst part, because they just had to kind of scrape it off for hours and hours. So, that was X-Men: Apocalypse."

Dark Phoenix Is Delayed...One Day After The Trailer Hits
Last week, Fox released the first poster and trailer for Dark Phoenix and while the response from fans was mixed, it certainly did a lot to get moviegoers excited to return to this universe one final time.
However, in a truly baffling move, Fox sent those materials out with the February 14th, 2020 release date...and then delayed it until June 7th. It's been reported that the delay is either down to VFX work being needed for the reshoots or because Fox wants as strong a debut in China as possible but it's beyond stupid and just shows how clueless the studio is and what a troubled movie this sequel is.
We'll get to those issues a little later but this surprisingly wasn't the dumbest move by Fox on Friday...
