Sinister, megalomaniacal, physically aggressive, genius, funny … pretty good at dancing. These things mean Oscar Isaac’s character Nathan Bateman could have been an over-the-top mad scientist Dr. Frankenstein figure in director Alex Garland’s artificial intellegence/robot flick Ex Machina.
Instead, the actor and writer/director Garland established a cinematic character who has been one of the most compelling and fun to watch this year. In the exclusive clip below from the DVD/Blu-ray release of Ex Machina, Garland discusses Isaac’s role – and how it could have easily become a silly mustache-twirling take.
Check out the clip below, and keep an eye out for our exclusive interview with Garland. Ex Machina is available now on DVD/Blu-ray.
