Concept artist Jerad S. Marantz revealed an unused design for Oscar Isaac’s Apocalypse in the X-Men film series.
20th Century Studios’ X-Men: Apocalypse finally introduced the powerful titular villain to the film series with Oscar Isaac in the role. However, most fans were less-than-pleased with the design of Oscar Isaac’s Apocalypse, which many say barely resembles the version of the character from the comic books.
Now, concept artist Jerad S. Marantz has taken to his official Instagram account to share an unused concept illustration for Oscar Isaac’s Apocalypse that is considerably more comic-accurate. In the caption included with the post, Marantz noted that this is one of his favorite unused designs for Apocalypse and that working on the X-Men character was exciting.

One of my favorite unused concepts for X Men Apocalypse. #Apocalypse is my favorite #X-Men villains and to get a chance to work on him was really exciting. If I had the time, there are a lot of characters from the comics that I would love to do some fan art of, But I’m always way too busy. It’s funny, as a child I would struggle with insomnia and I used to lay awake at night designing what these characters from the comics would look like in movies. Are used to collect wizard comic book guides and they would do something called casting call. That must’ve gotten my imagination going. #conceptart #costumedesign #xmen #xmenapocalypse #zbrush
