Speaking with IGN, Isaac opened up about how they plan to ruin the character.
“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.”
for f@ck sake……..
Like finding humanity in Dracula, The Wolfman, and The Mummy. Yeah, thats working out great for Universal at the moment. Apocalypse is a conqueror who believes ALL lifeforms are beneath him . It would be great to have a villain for ONCE in these films. Whats next ?? Finding humanity in Nazis or ISIS ??
Anyway, this movie will focus more on Mystique and Magneto anyway, so who cares right. Even the X-Men are just extras at this point.
Isaac went on to say he hopes that Ben Foster can reprise his role of Warren Worthington III, AKA Angel from X-Men: The Last Stand.
“He’s a great actor,” Isaac said. “I don’t really know how they’re going to put all that together or exactly what characters, or how that’s going to work. But I know Angel and Archangel in particular were some of my favorite characters in that storyline. That was such a cool and dark storyline. I think that would be a cool thing to see on film.”
Yeah, get Foster back. The movie is set 30 years before X3 , but hey, NOBODY is paying any attention right ??
The topic of adapting comics to the screen also came up which Isaac says is definitely important but not the priority for a film.
“Ultimately, it’s about making something compelling and interesting to watch. I think being faithful to certain characters from the comics is very important, but it’s a different medium. I think, ultimately, you want to make a great movie. That’s the most important part, and then finding, if not the exact details, the soul of the characters, of the stories, of what the whole thing was. Those aspects, even if you’re moving certain things around and maybe not being true to this particular storyline and adding this new thing, I think those are much more important. The experience of it will be much more compelling in the end.”
That all sounds fine and dandy Oscar, but all the shit you said before kind of negates it. Good luck i guess. I know what Apocalypse would say
