Producer/Screenwriter Simon Kinberg spoke about Byrne’s character in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly stating that she was a “significant character in the movie”.

“We ended First Class with Charles [Xavier] having wiped portions of her memory of her experience with the X-Men. They are, essentially, strangers to her when she meets them.” said Kinberg.

Oscar Isaac On X-Men: Age Of Apocalypse Costume

According to GeekTyrant, actor Oscar Isaac spoke with Yahoo UK about his character, Apocalypse, and the costume he’ll be wearing in 20th Century Fox’s X-Men: Age of Apocalypse. Isaac commented on the costume saying:

“It’ll be a mix [of practical and digital]. I haven’t had a script so I haven’t had a chance to look through the script and see what the exact requirements are, but I think it’ll be a mixture of physical, aided with some robotic technology.”

Isaac talked more about his character’s costume saying:

“After we finish here I’m heading to do a head cast [for ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’], which they do often. You spend 3-4 hours with them putting plaster all over your head and they get a sense of what your face is like and what shape your head is, so they can start figuring out the costume and the make up and all that stuff, which is pretty fun.”
