Oscar Isaac Talks About His Approach To Playing “Apocalypse” In ‘X-Men: Apocalypse


Out and about on the promotional campaign for ‘A Most Violent Year,’ Oscar Isaac opened to IGN about assuming the role of Apocalypse in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse,’ his approach to the character, director Bryan Singer’s take, and possible comic book arcs the movie could explore. “In the early conversations we talked a lot about that [Apocalypse’s distinct point of view and agenda]. Of course, you read the comic book, and [Apocalypse is] not so shaded with gray — except his face. [Laughs] That’s the only thing gray about him. Just as Bryan’s done with the other films, I think he seeks to find something a little more interesting than the archetypal aspects of the characters, which work really well in print, but for a film I think you want to see a bit more of the — for lack of a better word — humanity in [Apocalypse]; because ultimately this is a story about humans. It’s just different symbols for different things that we feel, so 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.”
