Marvel Studios Head of Visual Development Charlie Wen has shared concept art of the unused design for Balder in Thor: The Dark World.
The Dark World explored the God Thunder’s homeworld of Asgard and the life of its inhabitants more than the first Thor film. However, a key character from the comics named Balder Odinson, the half-brother of Thor, has yet to be introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Nonetheless, Charlie Wen has shared a concept illustration of a design for Balder that was obviously never used in Thor: The Dark World. In his caption, Wen explained that he never finished this particular illustration because the design for Balder was not working for him at this stage.
Check out the post below to see the Thor: The Dark World concept design for Balder!

#balder : another early unfinished concept design on #thorthedarkworld . * I never finished this because it wasn't really working for me. To get to the good designs, you have to be prepared to wade through some uglies?. Sometimes the best ones can come inspired in the first rounds…not usually though. * * * * * #thor #marvel #conceptart #brotherofthor #avengers #avengersendgame #bts #behindthescenes

Here is the official synopsis for The Lion King:
Director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
Directed by Jon Favreau from a script written by Jeff Nathanson, The Lion Kingstars Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.
The Lion King will be released in theaters on July 19, 2019.
