The third installment of the trilogy begun in X-Men: First Class has found its Apocalypse — it's Oscar Isaac, who's just finished filming another possibly villainous role in Star Wars: Episode VII. Clearly, Isaac is pretty good at being bad.

Apoclaypse is of course also known asEn Sabah Nur, the blue-lipped, 5,000-year-old mutant who is one of the X-Men's most powerful and dangerous adversaries. Here's what Variety had to say about the movie in addition to the casting:

Singer has described the upcoming X-Men film, which is expected to feature all cast members including Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and James McAvoy, as the most destructive movie in the franchise.

"'Apocalypse' will have more of the mass destruction that 'X-Men' films, to date, have not relied upon," he recently said. "There's definitely now a character and a story that allow room for that kind of spectacle."


Yeah, totally unlike the Golden Gate bridge getting torn apart in X-Men 3 or Magneto ripping apart the baseball stadium in Days of Future Past. Oh well. Actually, the movie can feature s much or little disaster porn as it wants as long as Isaac's Apocalypse still has a big-ass "A" on his belt buckle.
