“X-Men: Apocalypse” villain could look more daunting if known costume design artist Jose Fernandez was denied the project. The designer reportedly developed his own version of the villain’s costume for the “X-Men: Apocalypse” despite the fact that he was rejected for the role of designer and it looks better!
The renowned artist, who rose to fame for his design for the Catwoman suit in the “Batman Returns” in 1990, revealed that he was turned down to create the villain’s costume for the coming “X-Men” Apocalypse” movie. But the man said this did not stop himself from making his own design for the character, though it will not be shown in the film.
He said in an interview with Tested, as reported by Screen Rant, that his costume has a great influence from his previous designs for Marvel comics. He also noted that his dedication in creating the villain’s suit is more than enough as reward. Meanwhile, Screen Rant noted Fernandez’ excellent work on the villain’s costume, citing that fans will definitely be curious on the suit.
“Whether or not the final design featured in X-Men: Apocalypse will ultimately prove up to snuff for the most die-hard fans of the original comic book character, Fernandez’s original design will still stand as the Apocalypse that might have been,” the report read.
The report added that Jose Fernandez and his design studio Ironhead studio, is said to be one of the high-caliber in the industry of costume design. They were also cited by the Monsterplaza 2016 exhibition.
His work was also seen in the recently released “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” as well as in “Captain America: Civil War.” The “X-Men: Apocalypse” is directed by Bryan Singer and is set to be released on May 27.
