Oscar Isaac searches for Humanity in APOCALYPSE???

After Days of Future Past, can the X-Men franchise survive the rising fire of the one and only Apocalypse? I don’t know, but I’m more concerned about what fanboys and fangirls will have to digest after Fox shoves whatever version they please down our throats.

Recently Oscar Isaac gave up some quotes on the subject to IGN:

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].

Now what is this Fox? I’m sorry, can’t we just have a villain who’s bad because he wants to destroy the world and watch it burn? I know there’s depth to him, as in the reasons for his actions plus the grey dude’s origins, but I don’t want a force of nature turned into something it’s not, especially this one.

EPIC Apocalypse

And when asked about Ben Foster and if he should return for this movie:

He’s a great actor. 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.

X3 Archangel

I don’t need a sob story for En Sabah Nur and I don’t think we want to start another round of narrative hiccups by having a character who was young when he first got introduced brought into an even earlier flick with an older iteration of himself.

But what do you think? Do you really want a humanized Apocalypse? Should Angel return for another round? Does this sound stupid? Or is it too early to judge?

Sound off with your thoughts and opinions in the comments section below!

    If they are trying to make him more sympathetic then it seems like they are modeling him after Evan and not En Sabah Nur.

      It would be interesting if they went with Evan in the current time while referencing the original Apocalypse seen in the after credit sequence from DOFP. We’ll just have to wait and see.
