Early casting speculation for the next Bryan Singer directed X-Men installment X-Men: Apocalypse said Tom Hardy was being eyed for the role of the villainous “Apocalypse,” but Oscar Isaac has just been announced as nabbing the role.  

Isaac is best known for starring in last year’s Inside Lllewyn Davis, but with parts in X-Men and Star Wars VII on deck, he’s sure to become a household name, but we digress.

Apocalypse is an old mutant who was seen as a god in ancient Egypt. He rolls with his crew, the “Four Horseman” comprised of: Pestilence, Famine, War, and Death. 

Get ready to see Apocalypse and his buds wreak havoc on May 27, 2016, when the film is set to premiere.
