Abrams and Alex Garland — all of whom quickly helped to transform the actor into one of our most beloved stars. Things are only getting better from here, as Isaac’s next project could see him teaming up with anther great director.

Our first real look at Oscar Isaac’s titular villain in X-Men: Apocalypse wasn’t particularly great, to say the least. Featuring a purple-toned En Sabah Nur, that early official photo inspired a flood of jokes on social media, with people comparing him to everything from a Power Rangers villain to Violet from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Apocalypse has thankfully looked a lot less colorful in the trailers released since then, and with the X-Men sequel hitting theaters next week, Isaac and director Bryan Singer have a few thoughts about their villain’s aesthetic.

When Nightcrawler broke into the White House at the start of 2003’s X2, it felt like more than a watershed moment in the history of comic book movies; it felt like a miracle. Here was one of comics’ most fantastical characters — a blue-skinned, three-fingered German demon with a pointy, prehensile tail and teleportation powers — brought to life with all of his outlandish quirks and powers intact, showcased in a sequence that was thrilling and utterly convincing. It was something no one had ever seen before. It was truly uncanny.

Much can change between a movie’s initial trailer and the finished film (like that Anakin Skywalker reference in The Force Awakens). Visual FX will be finalized, scenes may be cut in the editing process to improve the narrative flow, additional footage might be incorporated, and additional dialogue may be recorded. That last one is particularly relevant for X-Men: Apocalypse, as you may have noticed that the titular villain’s voice changed quite a bit between the first trailer and the more recent sneak peeks.

This is definitely the coolest piece of marketing for X-Men: Apocalypse, and whoever came up with it over at Fox most certainly deserves a raise. Inspired by the classic In Search Of docuseries hosted by Leonard Nimoy, this promo for a fictional series titled In the Footsteps Of… briefly explores the origins of Oscar Isaac’s X-Men villain. But the best part is definitely the choice to have Nimoy’s former Star Trek co-star George Takei serve as narrator.

The X-Men universe’s latest baddie may be the biggest — and oldest — of them all, and as noted by Rose Byrne’s Moira MacTaggert, he’s always got a little extra help in the form of four followers, known as the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (clever). Joining the ancient mutant villain’s team are Magneto, Storm, Angel and Psylocke, all profiled in the latest featurette for X-Men: Apocalypse, which offers a bunch of new footage from the upcoming film.

What sounds better than a new movie from ‘Ex Machina’ filmmaker Alex Garland? How about a sci-fi movie about four women played by Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson (‘Creed’), Gina Rodriguez (‘Jane the Virgin’) and Jennifer Jason Leigh? Now let me raise you with one more addition: Oscar Isaac. If that news doesn’t have you doing the Oscar Isaac ‘Ex Machina’ dance, nothing will.
