Last week it was revealed that Luthur and Thor star Idris Elba has since parted way's on Guy Richies Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur as the "Merlin" of the film. Then several days ago Jeff Snieder of The Wrap called into Meet the Movie Press and dropped a hint that Idris Elba's name has been thrown around to possible play the title villain in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse! Many also know Elba as being the military commander at the end of Pacific Rim who gave the speech "We are canceling the Apocalypse!" well I guess that wasn't completely true...
Jeff lastly adds Elba is just one of three actors who have been rumored for the title role..
Other names that have floated around for the role of Apocalypse included Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) but Jeff says that is no longer happening. Which makes sense since Hardy maybe singing onto DC Comics Suicide Squad.
