Artist Reveals Unused Apocalypse Design, Heavily Inspired by the Comics

Ironhead Studio — the costume design company headed by superhero movie artist extraordinaire Jose Fernandez — stopped by Monsterpalooza 2016, in the company’s first-ever convention appearance, to discuss the various helmets and suits they’ve made, in addition to showing off an unused Apocalypse design that successfully rips the character right from the comics.

Fernandez created the unused Oscar Isaac Apocalypse mold, after another studio was ultimately chosen for the design, as a personal challenge.

Fernandez discussed his work in the superhero movie industry with Tested, reflecting on his earliest professional work, with his design for the “Batman Returns” Catwoman costume, to his most recent projects, like “Captain America: Civil War” and “Batman v Superman.”

After reimagining the Catwoman costume, Fernandez went on to work on the various movie batsuits — eventually going on to design Christian Bale’s cowl, which was the first to allow a Batman actor to turn their head.
