While the past seven X-Men movies have been epic, the next installment in this franchise promises to be down right biblical! That should be expected when X-Men: Apocalypse takes its title directly from the good book. Oscar Isaac, who plays Apocalypse in the movie, hasn't exactly been shy about sharing his process of creating this iconic Marvel character for the screen. In a recent interview with MonkeysFightingRobots, he delved even deeper, saying:
"I've been reading the script a lot and trying to come at for me, an interesting angle. Definitely focusing on the fact he is the embodiment of the second coming of the judgments of god and that energy going in. We're playing with that. What we are trying to do is make his philosophy and what his mission is, one that is both simple but also holds water, that really makes sense throughout the whole movie. I think Simon Kinberg and Bryan Singer, we've been able to come up with something very cool."
Oscar Isaac has already shot a few scenes for X-Men: Apocalypse, though no set photos of the actor in costume have leaked just yet. Director Bryan Singer returns to direct his fourth installment of the popular Mutant series, which began production in Montreal a few weeks ago. Apocalypse's mission in the movie will be to separate the weak from the strong in a story arc that somewhat matches up with the comic books. He will also be accompanied his Four Horsemen, making him nearly unstoppable as he goes up against Xavier's team of superheroes. Stay tuned as more will likely break from the set very soon.
