"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," said Fassbender in an interview with Screen Rant. "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."

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.'"
