Oscar Isaac Reveals New X-MEN: APOCALYPSE Plot Details And More


Not much is known about X-Men: Apocalypse other than the fact that it's going to feature a hell of a lot of mutants, but Oscar Isaac has revealed some new details about the movie in an interview with IGN. They kicked the interview off by asking him about Apocalypse's relationship with his Four Horsemen, and it sounds like it's going to be an interesting process. "Without giving anything away, the recruitment of the Four Horsemen is very cool. It's very interesting the way that he does that. You know the idea of - the way that cult leaders do - they find people that are in need of something and try to fulfill that thing in them - as it relates to every one of the Horseman."

Apocalypse sounds quite human then, but will he look that way too? Mentioning the fact that the villain can change his form at will, the site asked Isaac about whether he's excited to possibly explore multiple facets of Apocaypse's appearance. "Absolutely. And at the same time figuring out what the limits are and how it relates to how he moves and what it costs him. That's always a fun thing. So to be able to sit with [writer/producer] Simon Kinberg and - as a fan - just go through it and be like, 'Well what about this!?! You know, this is something that he does in the comics and is there a way to incorporate this? Or if he has this power suddenly how do we make that not come out of nowhere?' So it's really fun to map that thing out. But yes, the nature of how his powers manifest themselves is to a certain extent quite open to interpretation. Because there are so many and they are so vast." It could be that this take on the villain will definitely be sticking to the comic books, something which will be a nice change in Bryan Singer's X-Men movies.

As for the new plot details we mentioned, the actor had this to say about what to expect from Apocalypse's arrival. "On an individual level he's able to reveal the true power of his Horsemen and what's true to them. And I think to reveal the weakness - how weak we've become. Because this is an ancient entity. So to come to - I think 1983 - and say, 'How did the world become so weak? How did we allow ourselves to become to weak and to enslave ourselves.' I think that's where he's coming from."

X-Men: Apocalypse, directed by Bryan Singer (X-Men: Days of Future Past), will hit theaters on May 27, 2016 and stars Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), James McAvoy (Charles Xavier), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Oscar Isaac (Apocalypse), Rose Byrne (Moira McTaggert), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), Ben Hardy (Angel), Olivia Munn(Psylocke), Lucas Till(Havok) and Lana Condor (Jubillee).
