X-Men: Apocalypse Concept Art Shows Off Cyclops’ Visor, Nightcrawler’s Cage

While “X-Men: Apocalypse” wasn’t the most critically or commercially successful of the Fox franchise, it did much to expand the scale of its cinematic universe, introducing the first (and most powerful) mutant, who posed a threat far greater than even Magneto or the Sentinels.

But with the series timeline shifting ever closer to that of the original “X-Men” films, director Bryan Singer’s “Apocalypse” also introduced younger versions of familiar characters like Cyclops, Jean Grey, Storm and Nightcrawler. Some of the elements related to those fan-favorite mutants (and more0 are on display in movie concept art from Toronto illustrator Bartol Rendulic.

They include a look at Cyclops (Tye Sheridan) in his classic gray visor, seen at the end of the film, Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) with a Cerebro helmet, and Nightcrawler’s (Kodi Smit-McPhee) cage and transport devices used to move him across fighting arenas as he served as a cage fighter. There’s also a prototype of a pilot’s helmet and suit for Beast (Nicholas Hoult), interestingly labeled as “Trask’s plane.”

The latter would seem to serve as further confirmation that Peter Dinklage’s villainous Bolivar Trask from 2014’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past” was originally intended to play a role in “Apocalypse.”
