Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen a bunch of concept art for Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse, including alternate character designs for the titular villain and Jean Grey that were much better than the final product. Now, conceptual artist Bartol Rendulic has shared a sample of his work for the project, featuring some of the designs that he created for the props that we saw in the movie.
His artwork includes alternate designs for the Cerebro helmet, Xavier’s wheelchair, and Nightcrawler’s box. There’s also concept art for the special suits and weapons that William Stryker’s men used to capture the mutants and the wolf pendant that Magneto’s daughter, Nina, wore in the few scenes that she had in the movie.
Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped 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.
The cast features James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Evan Peters, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Olivia Munn, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Alexandra Shipp, Lucas Till, Ben Hardy and Josh Helman.
X-Men: Apocalypse hits Blu-ray, 4K Ultra HD and DVD on October 4, 2016. The movie will also be available on Digital HD starting September 9th. What do you guys think?
