New concept art from 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse reveals an alternate design for Oscar Isaac’s titular villain.
Back in November, Oscar Isaac opened up about the difficulties he faced while filming Apocalypse, describing his time on the X-Men movie as “excruciating” due to his uncomfortable costume. Now, a scrapped early design for Oscar Isaac’s villainous character has surfaced online.
Earlier this week, Jerad S.Marantz took to Instagram to share some of his work for Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse. The newly-surfaced concept art for the movie shows off an alternate look for Oscar Isaac’s character that did not go beyond the early stages of development. Check it out 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
