See what Deadpool and Victor Creed (Sabretooth) almost looked like in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
The Wolverine opens soon, so let's take a look back at concept art for the original solo Wolverine movie, X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009).
Phillip Boutte Jr. is a professional costume artist who's worked on films such as Man of Steel, Inception and Star Trek (2009).
See more concept art after the jump (click to enlarge).
Here's what Phillip had to say about the costume illustrations on his blog: "Here are a few working sketches from Wolverine. Some look the same in the movie, whereas others do not. (Deadpool) I liked this version of Deadpool and wish it had made it into the movie but it was very early on in development and the character's face had to be seen....enjoy."
I already showed Jerad S Marantz' unused "Beak" design before and it's worth checking that out too.
