X-Men: Apocalypse Casts Star Wars Episode VII's Oscar Isaac in Title Role

En Sabah Nur has been named, and that name is Oscar Isaac, according to Variety.

The Inside Llewyn Davis and Star Wars Episode VII actor will join the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse as the film's primary antagonist.

The film, which will be set in the 1980s, will reportedly feature younger versions of familiar X-Men from the first films, including Cyclops, Jean Grey and Storm. Rumor has it Jean Grey will be a recognizable name, while Cyclops will likely be an up-and-comer. As with just about every other major role for a woman of color in the past year, Lupita Nyong'o (also of Star Wars Episode VII) has been rumored for Storm.

X-Men and X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer will return to direct from a script by Simon Kinberg. The film is expected in theaters on May 27, 2016.
