On hearing the name Apocalypse, Singer’s face changed immediately but there was no point being timid. Might as well plough ahead with the question. Would he even consider using Apocalypse in the movies? How about in Days of Future Past?
His nervous answer: “I can’t tell you…”
That was most interesting. So I leapt forward and asked if realising the character of Apocalypse would require performance capture.
And now Singer looked even more nervous.
“This is how it gets started, when somebody starts piecing the little bits together…”
The non-verbal communication was even more compelling than what Singer was saying. If I had to bet on it, I would – we’ll be seeing Apocalypse in Days of Future Past, and he’s probably going to be a performance capture character.
