Oscar Isaac has revealed that playing the villain in X-Men: Apocalypse didn’t put him off saying yes to Moon Knight, and he revealed why.
He revealed why being in X-Men: Apocalypse didn’t put him off doing yet another superhero property during a recent interview with Total Film.
Now, I actually don’t think that X-Men: Apocalypse was that terrible.
It wasn’t good, but it sure wasn’t any Fantastic Four or Suicide Squad.
There were bits of it that I found to be rather enjoyable, such as Isaac’s performance as the film’s main villain, Apocalypse.
And Isaac revealed that he cares more about the people involved than what sort of genre a project occupies.
Oscar Isaac wasn’t put off doing Moon Knight, despite being in X-Men: Apocalypse
Here’s what Isaac had to say on the matter:
It’s not so much about the genre of things. It’s the people. And is there room to do something interesting in it? And sometimes there is, and you think there will be. And sometimes it turns out there isn’t So with this, I love the people involved. I thought there was an incredibly unusual story to tell within the world of, you know, the superhero language. But we’re making something that’s quite different, and that doesn’t follow the same, not necessarily even logic of what a lot of superhero films do. I think because of that, I just found an opportunity to do something that I’ve not done at all yet, and to have a lot of creative collaboration with the rest of the people making it.
