20th Century Fox has released a new X-Men Apocalypse featurette focusing on Oscar Isaac’s title villain, which you can check out below! In addition, director Bryan Singer (via IGN) has addressed initial fan concerns about Isaac’s voice not being “godly” enough.

“[The first X-Men: Apocalypse trailer] was simply Oscar using his normal voice — which is wonderful; his performance is fantastic — but that was never the intention,” Singer explains to IGN. “We just needed those words to govern the first teaser. So people thought, ‘Oh, wait, is that going to be his voice during the whole movie?’ No, but to tell the story of the first tease we needed the voice, and I hadn’t recreated the voice yet. What I’m doing is something very unique. It hasn’t been done before. We’re rerecording his entire performance because the suit’s creaky and makes all kinds of noise, you can’t really use any of it anyway. So he’s being recorded in ADR using a standard Sennheiser microphone, but also with a bass mic to his right cheek and a bass drum mic to his left cheek. These two microphones have the ability to pull vocal range out of his voice that the human ear cannot hear. And I can take that vocal range that I’ve now recorded, and I can pull it and use it to augment his voice — and that with a little digital magic can create a voice that’s both completely governed by his performance but is not natural. It ebbs and flows and moves through the movie, and changes, so he doesn’t just have one single voice. He speaks with different voices depending on different moments in the film.”

There will also be a global fan screening even on May 9, and you can find more info about that later today on Facebook.
