'X-Men: Apocalypse' Casts Rising Star As the Villain

just now | | See recent news »

If you look close enough, you can literally see Oscar Isaac's star rising by the second. The Inside Llewyn Davis and A Most Violent Year actor is not only set to play a major role in the upcoming Star Wars sequel, The Force Awakens, but he's now lined up another major gig as villain in the next X-Men movie, titled X-Men: Apocalypse, due out on May 27, 2016. Inspired by the popular Age of Apocalypse comic storyline, Isaac will play Apocalypse, or En Sabah Nur, whose roots date all the way back to Ancient Egypt, hence that post-credits introduction in X-Men: Days of Future Past. This guy is pretty powerful, is said to be one of the first-ever mutants (if not the first), and may even be invincible... which should cause problems for our returning mutants, who he'll no...

just now | | See recent news »

Right now is a hot time for Star Wars news. The first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is about to drop, and to add more fuel to the ridiculous amount of anticipation building inside our Jedi-lovin' hearts, a new report today claims to reveal the plot for the first Star Wars spin-off movie, due to hit theaters in 2016, to be directed by Gareth Edwards (Godzilla). According to Slashfilm, the spin-off will be a sort-of prequel to A New Hope in that it will follow the rebels' attempt to steal the Death Star plans from the Empire. Remember, the rebels already have the plans in their possession at the beginning of A New Hope, so this movie will show us how they got them... and apparently it will be from an unlikely group of individuals. Bounty hunters. Yup, the...

Oscar Isaac Cast as Apocalypse in X-men: Apocalypse

45 minutes ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Oscar Isaac, so hot right now. Oscar Isaac. He may have been snubbed by the Academy, not receiving an Oscar nod for his brilliant performance in Inside Llewyn Davis, but that was a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. Not only will Isaac be seen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Deadline is reporting that the actor has officially signed on to star in yet another gigantic geek property. Isaac will take on the villainous role of the ancient mutant Apocalypse in X-Men: Apocalypse. The Dark Knight RisesTom Hardy was previously rumored to be up for the role. This news comes on the heels of reports last week that Fox is narrowing down their choices for actors to play younger versions of Jean Grey and Cyclops in the upcoming 1980s set sequel to X-Men: Days of Future Past, which will continue to follow the X-Men: First Class cast. »

Update: You Can See the Star Wars: Episode VII Trailer This Weekend If You Live in 1 of 9 Cities [Updated]

1 hour ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Do you live in Irvine, San Diego, Atlanta, Chicago, New York, Warrington, Knoxville, Houston, or Seattle, and don't feel like talking to your family for two days straight this Thanksgiving? Well, if you go see a movie at your local Regal, you will see the first trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens. This weekend, only at those nine Regal theaters, the never-before-seen trailer will play before every movie. No word when the trailer will find itself online — legally, that is. Illegally, it will definitely find itself online every hour or so.Update: It appears Regal was a bit overzealous with its claim (with a name like Regal, what do you expect). AMC has confirmed that the trailer will be playing at select theaters of theirs as well (exact locations to come), a point J.J. Abrams confirmed with a fun little note he tweeted. Also in the »

2 hours ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Forget the rumours.  Inside Llewyn Davis’ star Oscar Isaac has signed on the play the titular villain in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse.

According to Variety, the actor, who is soon-to-be-seen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens emerged victorious from the pile of big name stars that had been rumoured to be in the lead for the role including Tom Hardy and Idris Elba.  The sequel, which is set for 2016 and features a returning cast that includes Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, and Evan Peters, is said to be set in the 1980s.

Oscar Isaac will end the world as the main bad guy in 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

2 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If nothing else, the "X-Men" series has one of the most interesting revolving casts in any of the various superhero franchises currently being produced. It was already interesting enough knowing that they were going to push Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence center-stage for this one to emphasize the love story between Magneto and Mystique. Those two are both such heavy hitters that it sounds genuinely exciting to have them carrying the film. In addition, Channing Tatum is supposed to join the ensemble this time as Gambit, a fan-favorite that was handled poorly in the first "Wolverine" spin-off. But now comes word that Oscar Isaac is joining the new film "X-Men: Apocalypse," and that's enormously exciting. I'm eager for people to get a look at Jc Chandor's new film "A Most Violent Year" soon, because I think the work Isaac does in it is remarkable. He's been slowly but surely »

Oscar Isaac Set to Play the Title Villain in 2016's 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

2 hours ago | | See recent news »

Though Tom Hardy was rumored to be in the running to play the title villain in the next installment of the X-Men franchise, the role has gone to one of the cast members of Star Wars: The Force Awakens (which will unleash a teaser trailer this weekend). Variety reports that 20th Century Fox has signed Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis, A Most Violent Year) to play the villain Apocalypse in the aptly titled X-Men: Apocalypse, already slated for release on May 27th, 2016. This comes just after learning that Fox is also eyeing actors and actresses to play the roles of young Cyclops and Jean Grey for the sequel set in the 80s. Apocalypse is believed to be the first mutant in human history. Through his years, Apocalypse inherits some alien technology from cosmic beings known as Celestials. This combined with his immortality, and menacing abilities nearly makes him invincible. »
