No, it hasn't.
^ Her specific comment no longer shows up on the post to which she originally attached it; I know because I went and tried to find said comment myself.
No it hasn't, stop lying.
Comic Book Resources was the initial source of the "Chastain deleted her comment" assertion, which I attempted to personally corroborate.
I would ask how recently you found or took that screenshot, though, because I once again attempted to find her comment specifically right now, and there are only 3 mentions of that character's name currently to be found in the comment section of that post, all of them from fans.
I just took it on my cellphone and refreshed the post.
Hmm. I'll take your word for it, then, even though, as noted, I cannot find her specific comment myself in spite of doing several "keyword searches" of her post.
Lol you don't even need to search for it. Instagram has this feature where it shows other comments from the original Instagram handle first. It's always worked that way...
^ Regardless, Chastain's comment regarding Lilandra is not showing up for me, but, as noted, I will take Frankeh's word for it on this.
A bit off-topic, but it's interesting that both Chastain and Lawrence could end up competing against each other for the Best Actress Oscar next year. They're both in the running for a nomination for sure.
One thing you gotta give to the X-Franchise is the pedigree of the cast.
The sad thing is: these actors get cast in this franchise, get rave reviews for their performance in other films around the same time, but give mediocre to middling/ok performances in the X-films.
See: Page (X3)
Maybe Chastain will come out unscathed?
Don't forget your girl Paquin! LOL I'm joking but a lot people don't like her in the X-flicks. Although Page was gold in the Alcatraz scene, "Who's hiding? ****head!"
I blame Isaac on Singer. He never had the right handle on the character I think. Although tbh Isaac, going by his performances I've seen, is more apt for a quietly menacing type like Mr Sinister, not a physically imposing, theatrical villain like Apocalypse.
Among those only Berry stands out, but she sucks in general when it comes to cbm roles.
Lawrence and Page, from what I've seen, aren't performing much different from their roles in other movies. Legit forgot Hunger Games was a year after FC.
Isaac is great; definitely blended into the character.
Really glad his resume shows off how flexible is.
Fox usually looks for very good actors for their franchise. The 2015 FF cast is pretty good. But there are other problems in the mix. They need good material to work with.
Who watched True Blood knows very well Paquin could deliver a more comic accurate Rogue.
I'm guessing Meryl Streep and Kate Winslet are also in the running next year. It can't be an Oscar ceremony without those two being nominated for something
LOL Totally forgot about Paquin. Might be quite fitting.
As someone who enjoyed Apocalypse in theatres I can say Isaac's Apocalypse is one of the worst parts of the movie. I cringed every time he showed up on screen.
My issue came back to the lines and not the delivery. There was no "off" button to how pretentious he could be, particularly when scenes would benefit from more naturalistic dialogue. Only excuse/explanation is that he's a living time capsule or that's just how he is in the cartoons.
Wow, they should totally face off. or how about make out? Mystique is into all sorts of naughty things, Cassandra Nova, Beast (in this universe)...
whoops, meant destiny, not cassandra nova
It's how he is in the cartoons and the comics.
when it comes to apocalypse he was very much as he was in comics and animated show so i don't know what people were expecting.
The design was poor. The voice wasn't intimidating. The powers were not accurate to comics. Lousy villain.
He looked ridiculous.
