Juggernaut Almost Looked Like This In X-Men: Days Of Future Past

We marveled over Quicksilver, and his scene-stealing powers that Bryan Singer put on display in X-Men: Days of Future Past. But did you know that the lightning-fast mutant wasnít always part of the plan? In fact, Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and Professor X (James McAvoy) originally were going to enlist a young Juggernaut to help them break the Master of Magnetism out of his Pentagon cellÖ and now we know (above) what he might have looked like.

These images come to us from Anthony Jones, a concept artist at Blizzard Entertainment who began sharing on his Facebook page sketches he worked up for Fox and X-Men: Days of Future Past. As you can tell, it incorporates some of the elements Brett Ratner used to cloak Vinnie Jones in X-Men: The Last Stand. But they still canít commit to using the full battering-ram helmet thatís part of Markoís suit in the comics. Above, he has cloth material over his dome. Here, thereís a darker color scheme, and a hood. That isnít protecting the Juggernaut at all!



Anthony Jones apparently was commissioned to pencil costume designs for Bobby Drake Ė aka, Iceman Ė as well, and the artist shared a few tundra-inspired looks for the older X-Man. Do you want to build a snowman?



This one works in a Scottish plaid.



And this one pulls off a "Ready for the slopes!" vibe.



How this is better than the original look of the character, Iíll never understand. The X-Men movies are terrified of comic book costumes. These designs are impressive, but they are nowhere near what the heroes wore in the source material. Maybe Fox asked for that? Then they went in a different direction. Seeing as how we might get Juggernaut in future X-movies (like X-Men: Apocalypse), keep these designs in mind.
