‘X-Men: Apocalypse‘ isn’t one of the best films but watching it isn’t something you might call “excruciating.” However, according to Oscar Isaac, it was one of the worst jobs that he’s had to date! It looks like his costume was the biggest drawback to working on the film which is truly a shame as we’ve all agreed that many cosplayers were able to nail the look much better than what ended up appearing on the big screen.
According to Isaac:
“Apocalypse, that was excruciating. I didn’t know when I said yes that that was what was going to be happening. That I was going to be encased in glue, latex and a 40-pound suit — that I had to wear a cooling mechanism at all times.
And every time I moved, it was just like rubber and plastic squeaking, so everything I said had to be dubbed later as well. And then getting it off was the worst part, because they just had to kind of scrape it off for hours and hours. So, that was X-Men: Apocalypse.”
Isaac did have another major complaint with what irked him about working on ‘Apocalypse’ and it quickly went right back to the costume as well:
“I was like, ‘oh, I get to work with these great actors that I like so much,’ but I couldn’t even see them because I couldn’t move my head. And I had to sit on a specially designed saddle, because that’s the only thing I could really sit on, and I would be rolled into a cooling tent in-between takes.”
Not only was he unable to enjoy any of his own performance, but it looks like he wasn’t able to interact with any of the actors which he was working with that much either.
Do you agree with the two reasons that Oscar Isaac hated ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’? Did you enjoy the film and his performance or feel that it was a weaker entree in the “X-Men” franchise? Share your thoughts in the comments below, True Believers!
