MICHAEL FASSBENDER SPEAKS ABOUT MAGNETO & APOCALYPSE

Published

on

In a recent interview with Screen Rant, Michael Fassbender was asked about his character Magneto, who we know is not a man to be ruled, why he is serving Apocalypse in the upcoming ‘X-Men: Apocalypse‘ film.  Here’s what Fassbender had to say:

*POTENTIAL SPOILERS*

“Well I think he’s serving his family, you know. He does what he does so he can provide shelter and security for his family. In a way you’re right, he’s serving a new master, and I think from before we know obviously that he loses his parents in a concentration camp, but there was always that story of Magda that I thought was pretty interesting. That sort of confounds his mistrust in human beings, so that was a sort of big influence on this story, where we find him.

But yeah, this was another thing that I was discovering through talking to Oscar and talking to Simon Kinberg, and this idea of Apocalypse sort of being like a god, the original mutant. Talking to Oscar about that I was thinking, at that moment where things are being taken away from him again in Poland it’s almost like he’s looking for an answer, or he’s challenging God, it’s like, “What do you want from me? I’ve tried everything. I’ve tried to lead a good life. I’ve tried to do it correctly, whatever that is, and now you do this to me so what do you want?” It’s sort of like a challenge to God, if he’s out there, and then Oscar’s character arrives. So in a way, tied in with that I thought it was a nice link. He arrives and it’s like, “Okay well something much more powerful than me has arrived,” in a way kind of like a god; he’s the original mutant. And I think, like you were saying before Magneto doesn’t really follow anyone, so it was kind of a hard thing like, well how does he just become one of Apocalypse’s Horsemen, and is he cool with that? But he appreciates that this guy is going to do what he couldn’t do. He’s got just so much more power than him, he’s such an immense force. In a way, it’s like that classic thing of joining any cult or radical group, he’s caught him at a very low, vulnerable point where he doesn’t really care anymore whether he dies or not or what happens, so he’s like, “Yeah I’ll join this guy. I’ll go on this path of judgment.” Apocalypse is sort of bringing judgment to the Earth.

Based on Fassbender’s words, it would appear that Apocalypse comes into the picture when Magneto has hit a low point in his life.  It would even appear that he is trying to lead a life of peace and quiet, maybe even good.  Then is later faced with the decision whether he will sit on the sidelines or join forces with the most powerful mutant of all time, to bring judgement to Earth.
