Oscar Isaac Teases Even More Info About Apocalypse For X-men Apocalypse

Oscar Isaac has exclusively revealed to Yahoo Movies that the transformation he’ll undergo to play the titular villain in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ will be a combination of physical and CGI.

“It’ll be a mix [of practical and digital]. I haven’t had a script so I haven’t had a chance to look through the script and see what the exact requirements are, but I think it’ll be a mixture of physical, aided with some robotic technology.”

The 35-year-old star let slip this nugget of X-info while we were chatting with him earlier this week about his new film ‘Ex Machina’ (in cinemas now) and we think his “robotic technology” comment was a nod towards that film, rather than a direct reference to X-Men.

He also revealed that pre-production for the film, which is coming to cinemas in 2016, is already underway.

“After we finish here I’m heading to do a head cast [for ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’], which they do often. You spend 3-4 hours with them putting plaster all over your head and they get a sense of what your face is like and what shape your head is, so they can start figuring out the costume and the make up and all that stuff, which is pretty fun.”

In the comics Apocalypse is an ancient mutant with the ability to complete control over the molecules of his body. He’s usually portrayed as a hulking bruiser with grey and blue-skin who wears an elaborate armoured suit which has been augmented by alien tech, so a combined physical and digital transformation seems appropriate.
