Oscar Isaac On His Prep For X-MEN: APOCALYPSE

Actor Oscar Isaac discusses his preparation methods for playing the titular villain in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse..."the embodiment of the Second Coming with the Four Horseman and all. That's scary shit."

In a new interview with Esquire Magazine, Star Wars actor Oscar Isaac briefly touches on his preparation to play the maniacal mutant, En Sabah Nur aka Apocalypse in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse. It sounds as if Isaac is taking his prep for the role very seriously.  "You find something that makes it interesting for you.  "With X-Men, it's about why this woman who invented Apocalypse, [writer] Louise Simonson, she was tasked with: make a new arch-villain. She said, ‘OK, I'll make the embodiment of the Second Coming with the Four Horseman and all.' That's scary shit. So I'm curious about that. What's the philosophical expression behind the apocalypse? What apocalypse means, which comes from the Greek for ‘to reveal.’ To lift back the curtain."
