TheWrap is finally reporting the three actors in the running for the villain role of Apocalypse in Bryan Singer's X-Men Apocalypse. Jeff confirms our previous suspicions of Idris Elba being involved, along with Oscar Isaac (Drive, Bourne Legacy) and Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones).
Apparently, Oscar is the one who is actually making a deal with Fox and is about to close one. He'll be seen with a role in Star Wars The Force Awakens next December. Oscar is an excellent actors and has played his share of villains in the past.
