Oscar Isaac? Is that you? Yes, apparently it is. Isaac plays the title villain in the upcoming X-Men sequel, X-Men: Apocalypse. The character, an immortal mutant from ancient Egypt, is typically portrayed with an extremely elaborate harness, weird wire lips, and crazy blue and chalk-white skin. You had to wonder if director Bryan Singer would go another direction with Apocalypse to make Isaac more recognizable to viewers.

The only unfortunate thing about Show Me a Hero is the realization that David Simon’s latest HBO enterprise is a limited series. Simon, who also created The Wire (aka the best television series of all time), returns to the network with Show Me a Hero, starring Oscar Isaac as a mayor struggling to do the right thing in a city that doesn’t want to let him.

Last night’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel has already gone down as one of the biggest triumphs in Comic-Con history. While there wasn’t a new trailer or new footage, there was something special in the air. The enthusiasm of the cast, old and new, was palpable. A behind-the-scenes featurette moved the audience to tears. Even grumpy ol’ Harrison Ford bothered to show up and he…actually smiled? A lot? And yes, there is video evidence of this phenomenon because the whole hour-long panel has made its way online (and it’s all nice and official, too).

Even if you aren’t familiar with his comic book counterpart, the name of the villainous Apocalypse definitely conjures up ideas of complete global annihilation, a bad guy who could very well usher in the End Times. And that’s the mega-conflict the X-Men are facing into in next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse, which sees the team battling the most epic threat yet. Oscar Isaac is set to play the role of the big bad Apocalypse, and although he can’t say too much, he is promising some pretty big things.
