‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Director Bryan Singer Defends Oscar Isaac Performance
Even before “X-Men: Apocalypse” release in theaters, mixed reactions about the movie has already surfaced. But director Bryan Singer has something to say regarding these remarks.Advertisement
Addressing one issue that the mutant villain Apocalypse sounded more like Oscar Isaac, as shown in the first “X:Man: Apocalypse” trailer, the director said, “It was simply Oscar using his normal voice — which is wonderful; his performance is fantastic — but that was never the intention.”
He added that they rerecorded his entire performance through an ADR using a standard Sennheiser microphone. They added a bass mic on his right cheek and a bass drum mic his left cheek, which can pull his vocal ranger out of his voice, Screen Rant said.
“What I’m doing is something very unique. It hasn’t been done before,” he said, adding that the “little digital magic” can manipulate his performance, but is still natural.
Screen Rant noted that the director’s explanations make sense, as Bryan Singer and his team would not release a trailer they did not prepare for.
Moreover, Bryan Singer also released his statement about an image from Entertainment Weekly, showing the characters in pink shade, resembling a Power Ranger. He took responsibility for the image that circulated.
“They maybe just should have taken the pink out of the picture — I should have taken the pink out of the picture,” the director explained. “I’m going to take some blame for that. My fault, not Entertainment Weekly’s. That’s the picture I gave them.”
Despite the criticism, the “X-Men: Apocalypse:” has drawn majority of positive feedback before its release.
“X-Men: Apocalypse” will hit U.S. screens on May 27.
