While there are many fans waiting to learn more about Oscar Isaac's Poe Dameron in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the actor recently shed some light on his title villain in 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Apocalypse. A much younger version of Apocalypse was teased during the end credit sequence for X-Men: Days of Future Past, but Oscar Isaac will be tasked with bringing a more powerful, older villain to life in next year's superhero sequel. While he wouldn't shed too much light on the character, he did reveal one of his powers, while doing press for A Most Violent Year. Take a look at what he had to say below.
"...One of his major powers is being able to change all the molecules in his body. So I'll be changing all the molecules in my body. It's gonna be a lot of fun."
In the comic books, Apocalypse was a towering figure who had the ability to switch from host bodies to constantly revive his self-sustaining body. Of course, we have no idea what that will look like on the big screen yet, but it seems that this comic book adaptation is staying true to at least one of his powers. We reported in September that X-Men: Apocalypse will end the trilogy that started with 2011's X-Men: First Class and continued in last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past. Production is scheduled to begin in Montreal later this year, so hopefully we'll learn more about this superhero sequel soon.
X-Men: Days of Future Past stars James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto) and Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique) are expected to reprise their roles in X-Men: Apocalypse, but, as of now, the only confirmed cast member is Oscar Isaac.
