|X-Men (2000) storyboard by Raymond Prado|
X-Men Days of Future Past is not far away, so it's time to look back at the film that started it all. I've already shared his storyboards for the unfilmed fight between Wolverine and Sabretooth. The scene in the train station was a pivotal moment in the X-Menfilm and storyboards by Raymond Prado show a very different take on the scene. There's a rumor that the scene with the little boy looking at Cyclops was improvised because the extra was a huge fan of the character. If nothing else, it's missing from this storyboards. So, how many changes do you notice?
Raymond Prado is a professional storyboard artist who's worked on Hollywood films like Deep Impact (1998), Source Code (2011) and the upcoming The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (2014)
