Concept artist Jerad S. Marantz shared his unused idea for Hydro-Man in Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Marvel Studios and Sony’s Spider-Man: Far From Home found the wall-crawler going head-to-head with four beings known as the Elementals, which were later revealed to be the holographic-illusions of Mysterio. One of the Elementals was modeled after Hydro-Man, one of the wall-crawlers classic foes from the comics known for his ability to manipulate water.
Now, Jerad S. Marantz has taken to his official Instagram account to share a concept illustration of Hydro-Man and revealed one of his early ideas for the monstrous villain. In the caption included with the post, Marantz noted that he floated the idea of Hydro-Man being able to form from any angle, meaning he could create a new head as opposed to turning or add extra arms.
Check out the Hydro-Man concept art in the post below.

Here’s a real fun idea I had for #Hydroman for #spidermanfarfromhome home. Because the character’s liquid, I Pitched the idea of him being able to form from every angle, so instead of turning his head a Head could form wherever. Same thing with the arms. It’s just a quick concept to illustrate the idea. I could pretty much sculpt whatever I wanted and render it out and Glass in keyshot. Very effective and really quick. #zbrush #keyshot #conceptart #spiderman #mcu
