Oscar Isaac is looking much better in X-MEN: APOCALYPSE

1 min read

When it comes to X-Men villains, you don’t get any antagonist more threatening than En Sabah Nur aka Apocalypse. The very first mutant, thousands of years old, augmented by Celestial technology and a firm believer in the concept of survival of the fittest, Apocalypse is the one threat in the X-Men universe that no single mutant can defeat on their own.

X-Men Apocalypse (5)

And he kinda looked like a crappy Power Rangers villain when he was first seen in promotional shots for X-Men: Apocalypse. Now Oscar Isaac may be a fine actor, but there was something lacking from his on-screen design. A sense of scale and genocidal threat, that just didn’t shine through.

Well it seems director Bryan Singer was either listening to fans or not showing the full picture, as Apocalypse has had a redesign. X-Men Newz got a look at a leaked image of the new Apocalypse. Here it is:


MUCH BETTER! The purple hues have been killed off, for a more traditional look that also borrows elements from the comics. Like those weird side-lip thingies. But overall, a much better interpretation of the character in a visual sense. There’s also another leaked image of Cyclops, Jean Grey and Nightcrawler, wearing the more standard black leather X-Men costume:


New look Apocalypse, old-school X-Men threads? I’m down with that. X-Men: Apocalypse is out next year on May 27.

    That’s a definite improvement, would like to see a full shot though. And would really like to hear the voice, he’s gotta be menacing.

      YES thats what i was thinking as well. In all honesty…. He should be a highly built character. Huge muscles, but bulging that it looks like its about to explode. He cant be a standard height character either. I just hope they pull him off cause to me its a make or break for the movie as a whole.
