So the X-Men: Apocalypse Gag Reel was released recently and watching it, I noticed a few things:
- Both Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence are checked out and yet still able to make witty jokes. J-Law especially seems to want lunch half the time, but then is able to make a joke based on a comic book reference (the fact that Nightcrawler is her illegitimate son with Azazel).
- The actors playing the kids (Cyclops, Jean Grey, Nightcrawler, and Storm) appear to be having the time of their lives. Alexandra Shipp, especially, seems to love flying on the wires.
- Oscar Isaac is a master of comedy even under piles of blue makeup. When he goes “Pft. Real mature” to Xavier, I cracked up. You know what this means? We should have had Funny Apocalypse in the movie! I mean, he wasn’t really that threatening during most of the movie anyway, but can you imagine if he was funny? It would have made the film so much better.
- Apocalypse to Angel: “I like him. He’s funky.”
