One of Apocalypse’s powers revealed?

January 20th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Oscar Isaac has been chatting about playing Apocalypse, En Sabah Nur – the first, original and most powerful mutant – in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse and he’s revealed something spoilery about his character in the movie.

In the comics, Apocalypse is the daddy of mutant abilities, strength, flight, teleportation, telekinesis are just a few – remember he built the pyramid at the end of X-Men: Days of Future Past using his mind? Well, it seems that he may have other abilities in the movie too.

ComingSoon caught up with Isaac and asked about his appearance and powers in the movie. The actor seemed happy enough to chat about it and shared the following: “[The costume] hasn’t been figured out yet, but one of his major powers is being able to change all the molecules in his body, so I’ll be changing all the molecules in my body… It’s gonna be a lot of fun.”

Does he mean that, as in the comics, Apocalypse can change size and shape at will? Will his costume need to be Hulk-like in their stretchiness? We’re not 100% sure what he means, but our money would be on this…

X-Men: Apocalypse will star James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult and Oscar Isaac; it is scripted by Simon Kinberg, Mike Dougherty and Dan Harris

X-Men: Apocalypse is due for a May 27, 2016 release.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
