When Supervillain Make-Up Gets In The Way Of Actual Acting

Video: Watching this gave me intense flashbacks to every scene in the 2002 Spider-Man movie where Willem Dafoe’s voice floated out from behind an expressionless Green Goblin mask. What a bad idea, right?

Whether it’s Oscar Isaac as Apocalypse in X-Men: Apocalypse or Idris Elba as Krall in Star Trek Beyond, it can sometimes seem really dumb to negate the expressiveness of a big-deal actor’s face under layers of prosthetics. A College Humour sketch makes fun of this phenomenon with a “cool space guy” that you can barely understand because so much effort has been made to make him seem otherworldly. Let’s hope future films learn from the true power of this mistake.
