Oscar Issac Talks Apocalypse!
After the massive success of X-Men: Days of Future Past the next in line for the increasingly popular series is their greatest threat yet in the form of Apocalypse, the first mutant. Created in the 80’s the character of En Sabah Nur (the first one) has been a real constant threat for the X-Men. Bryan Singer and Co released this this pic of the mutant who stands to devastate the humans and mutants in worldwide destruction in his attempt to separate the weak from the strong.
Oscar Issace let us in on his thought process behind bring one of the most dangerous mutants to life. “With this character I am incredibly interested in the challenge of finding someone that’s psychologically interesting and compelling, and actually the spiritual aspects of the character… For me, that’s what I’m interested in, in any character that I do. It’s a meditation on ‘What’s their engine? What’s their spirit?’ Whether that’s about Llewyn Davis or Apocalypse, there’s an aspect of ‘What is it that makes them run? What’s their spirit like?’ That’s what I’m interested in finding out about that character.”
I have been waiting to see this character on screen for years and now it is finally happening. I just hope they manipulate his voice to sound more sinister, that was one thing that always stood out in the animated X-Men tv show was when Apocalypse spoke, it was terrifying.
X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters next summer!
