According to Variety, Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis) has been cast as the titular character in upcoming X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. After Days of Future Past succeed at the box office, it was only a matter of time before another X-Men film came out. In fact, Bryan Singer was so confident in his movie, they did a post-credits stinger including En Sabah Nur/Apocalypse as a child in Egypt.
I don’t really remember hearing of Oscar Isaac before Inside Llewyn Davis hit the award nominations. And judging from his wiki page, he was in The Bourne Legacy as well. Most importantly, it should be noted that Mr. Isaac will be playing a TBA role in STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS in 2015. The mystery around his role is intriguing and definitely has us chomping at the bit to find out if he’s good or bad or worse.
Anyways, we’ll be watching the casting announcements for Fox’s next X-Men movie and giving you all the goodies.
