More ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Concept Art Reveals Alternate Design For En Sabah Nur

We recently saw a few alternate designs for Cyclops and Mystique from Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse and now a new piece of concept art by artist Jerad Marantz has revealed a much more comic-accurate look for the titular villain. The look they decided to go with obviously wasn’t received very well by both critics and fans, but I think that this wouldn’t be the case if they would have gone with something similar to this artwork. You can check out the images below and sound-off your thoughts in the comment section.

Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.

X-Men: Apocalypse is currently playing in theaters everywhere.

    This movie has a habit of picking the wrong concept art to become final. Those pics are much better than what we ended up with.

  • Chris W

    That looks 100x better to me.

  • Kureb

    WTF!!!! WHY NOT???

  • Carl

    Further evidence that Singer isn’t the guy for superhero movies.

    The face looks better, but I think the suit in the movie was better. At the very least the suit in that art looks too modern,

  • That looks way cooler. They nailed the lips.


    My god, why wasn’t that used, instead of what we received????

  • Math

    Man… These makes you wonder how much cooler these characters could have looked had they chosen to stick closer to the source material. That’s what I would have expected Apocalypse to look like on film.
