With rumours swirling that Tom Hardy was set to take on the villainous role of Apocalypse in the upcoming follow-up to X-Men: Days of Future Past, it’s now been revealed that Oscar Isaac will take on the role of the tyrannical morphing super-mutant.
X-Men: Apocalypse, which goes before the cameras next March, will see Singer reunite the X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days Of Future Past cast for what may be their final adventure. And as part and parcel of that, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence and co will be facing off against Apocalypse.
According to Variety, Oscar Isaac – who’s recently finished work on Star Wars: The Force Awakens – will now play the iconic antagonist. Isaac is best known on screen so far for the Coen Brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis.
X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 2016.
