In a 2018 video interview with GQ, Oscar Isaac broke down his most iconic characters (at the time), and he pretty much revealed his difficult experience filming “X-Men: Apocalypse” (via IndieWire). Apparently, when he agreed to make the film, he didn’t know about the “mourning” process that he would have to go through to get the look of Apocalypse. He said that to play the blue supervillain, he was “wrapped in glue, rubber, and a 40-pound suit of clothing – [so] I had to wear a cooling mechanism all the time. I can’t move my head, ever. “
The suit was so heavy and enveloping that his mobility was greatly affected, limiting many activities, including simply sitting. Isaac revealed that he “had to sit in a specially designed saddle, and the whole situation made it impossible for him to really get along with his co-stars one bit. can do is sweat and film your scenes, while someone “rolls [him] into a cooling tent in between” so that the heat of the suit never overwhelmed him. Even if the movie were more successful, that’s certainly a lot to go through for a role in the movie. .
