A new piece of concept art has revealed an alternate look for Ocar Isaac’s X-Men: Apocalypse villain.
20th Century Fox’s X-Men: Apocalypse introduced the eponymous villain to the series with Oscar Isaac in the role. However, the new film design for Oscar Isaac’s Apocalypse was not well-received when the first image of the X-Men villain was released and the response did not improve when the project opened in theaters.
Now, X-Men: Apocalypse concept artist Jerad S. Marantz has taken to Instagram to share an early look for Oscar Isaac’s villain that was not used for the final film. As Marantz explains in the caption, the artist tried to remain as true to the X-Men comics designs for Apocalypse as possible but he did not get a chance to refine this stripped-down look for Oscar Iscaac.
Check out the alternate design for Oscar Isaac’s Apocalypse below.

Early concepts for #apocalypse for #xmenapocalypse I tried to stay close to the source material on this one. This was a bit of a stripped-down version of the character. This was what I would consider layer one for the characters look. Didn’t get to take this concept very far. I would consider this a work in progress. There are a few elements that I really like, but didn’t get a chance to refine. #xmen #ageofapocalypse #marvel #zbrush #characterdesign #mutant #costume #costumedesign #keyshot
