This piece of fan art reveals what X-Men: Apocalypse star Oscar Isaac could have looked like with a comic-accurate design.
Fox’s interpretation of Apocalypse (played by Oscar Isaac) made the classic X-Men villain a lot more blue/purple, as he is sometimes illustrated in the comics.

Digital artist George Evangelista has created a concept design of Oscar Issac that transforms the actor’s take on Apocalypse into a version that more closely resembles the character as he appears in the comics. While it doesn’t suggest that Apocalypse is taller, it definitely makes Oscar Isaac look more terrifying as the villain. Here’s Oscar Isaac as a more accurate version of Apocalypse:
As it stands, X-Men: Apocalypse star Oscar Isaac was the least of the film’s problems, as it was stuffed with a number of plot threads and underdeveloped characters. Hopefully, Oscar Isaac gets a much better superhero role in the future.
