Casting an amazing actor like Oscar Isaac in a superhero movie is always a great idea, even when you don’t get to see him. Isaac is playing Apocalypse in Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Apocalypse, a character that – as you can see from the image above – doesn’t really have many human looking qualities. He’s alien, he’s got this huge costume, you’d think Isaac would be unrecognizable as the character. However, we’ve already seen a glimpse of his younger self in Days of Future Past so there’s no guarantee that the film version of Apocalypse will be similar to the comic book version.
In a new interview, Isaac talked a bit about the look of his character, Apocalypse. He admitted that while there will be some digital effects, large parts of it will be physical too. Read Isaac’s Apocalypse costume quotes below. Read More »

Bryan Singer is preparing to shoot the next X-Men movie, X-Men Apocalypse, which takes place after Days of Future Past. That means the younger First Class cast will be around, but a new generation of X-Men — the generation which is already grown in the original series of films — has to come on board. Specifically, that means the characters Jean Grey, Cyclops and Storm, played by Famke Janssen, James Marsden and Halle Berry in the previous movies.
We’d heard rumblings of some major actresses being up for the Jean Grey role but they’ve all moved on. Now there’s a new crop of actors not only up for Jean Grey, but Cyclops and Storm as well. Find out who might join the X-Men Apocalypse cast below. Read More »
