That is, he actually kinda sorta looks like he is suppose to look.
When the internet got it’s first look at Oscar Isaac as Apocalypse in the villains eponymous X-Men movie, well let’s say it was less than kind. Yes, we all know he bore an uncanny resemblance to a certain oozy purple Power Ranger villain and yes it was kind of rough seeing the big budget Hollywood blockbuster costume pale in comparison to some great, source clinging cosplay. Well, maybe that’s not his final form?
XMenNewz has posted some photos that, if legit, might make even the most cynical X-Fan rest a little easier about En Sabah Nur’s big screen debut. It also might spoil parts of the movie so the pic and a super special surprise bonus are up after the jump.
Ok that looks a little more like the big bluey-grey immortal mutant menace that we know and love. Of course since this does come from a twitter account misspelled the word ‘news,’ we should be wary of it’s legitimacy, right? Do they have anything else that could link this to a real legit leak?
How about a picture of Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, and Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler in (sigh) not blue and yellow spandex. Black leather and hockey pads? There you go internet, you can now complain about that! The Bryan Singer taketh, the Bryan Singer giveth-backith.
Still not convinced? how about double vision look at Olivia Munn and Ben Hardy in costume as Psylocke and Angel!
With less that a year till X-Men: Apocalypse sees release (May 27th, 2016) I’d give it a month or two before we are inundated with more official photos (and a trailer too) revealing the full look of the film.
Till then, viva la leaks.
