When Hydro Man first splashed onto screen in Spider-Man: Far From Home, he was a hulking, faceless water figure. However, it was just revealed that the design for the aquatic villain was almost very different.
Concept artist Ryan Meinerding unveiled never-before-seen key art of Hydro Man on his Instagram, with this version based on the art of Spawn creator, Todd McFarlane.
Meinerding wrote, "Hydro-man fight!! Early Keyframe from Far From Home. I always loved this character, especially Todd McFarlane’s depiction of him."
The series of images have a very humanoid Hydro Man fighting Spider-Man in the epic Venice attack scene. This version of Hydro Man features a more defined body as the muscular build of the character is highlighted through his appendages and torso. Hydro Man's head is also more defined, showing facial features and a recognizable shape compared to the film's final version.
Helmed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Far from Home stars Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, J.B. Smoove, Jacob Batalon and Martin Starr, with Marisa Tomei and Jake Gyllenhaal. The film is available now on Digital and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD.
