Bryan Singer Gives Blow-By-Blow Defense of ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Villain

First Apocalypse was too pink. Then he was too normal sounding. Then he was too short. Well, director Bryan Singer has an answer for all these criticisms towards his X-Men: Apocalypse villain.

Apocalypse shows off his fear factor by staring down a skull.

First, we’ll start with the color. “Pink?” you may ask. “But every trailer I’ve seen Apocalypse in, he looks blue!” That’s because he is blue. Some fans got in a tizzy because in one simple photo released to Entertainment Weekly, Apocalypse (and the others in the photo) had a pinkish light shining on him.

Singer’s response? “Everyone in the picture is pink. It’s a pink picture….I should have taken the pink out of the picture. I’m going to take the blame for that.”

Next, the voice. Some people thought actor Oscar Isaac‘s voice was a bit underwhelming in the first trailer. According to Singer, his vocal effects just weren’t completed yet.

“The first trailer was simply Oscar using his normal voice, which is wonderful. His performance is fantastic, but that was never the intention. We just needed those words to govern the first teaser…and I hadn’t recreated the voice yet,” Singer said.
