Isaac, Egerton On “X-Men: Apocalypse” Rumors

Appearing on a red carpet for awards season this week, actor Oscar Isaac was asked about his upcoming role as the villain in Bryan Singer’s “X-Men: Apocalypse”.

The actor tells MTV News that the iconic bad guy will very much live up to his name: “I’ve seen a couple things… Scary s-t. Scary s-t… I’m going to bring [the X-Men] down to their knees. It’s amazing, I’m so excited about everything that’s going to happen.”

Meanwhile, “Kingsman: The Secret Service” actor Taron Egerton appeared at a post-screening Q&A for that film last night where he was asked about the rumor from this week that he’s a major contender for the role of a young Cyclops in “X-Men: Apocalypse”.

He says (via CBM): “I really can’t comment on the Cyclops thing. I’m not really sure what’s going on there or where that [rumor] came from, but my friend Nicholas Hoult plays Beast and he says that’s very fun. Of course, everyone would like to play a superhero, but this is by no means me saying I would like to go play Cyclops. So, I don’t know.”
