|Fantastic Four (2015)|
In the movie Fantastic Four the group travels to "Planet Zero" which is in another dimension. This is a very similar concept to the "Negative Zone" in the comics. The final look of the planet changed dramatically in the film but a couple of concept artists have shared artwork that shows what the planet was supposed to be like.
Annis Naeem and Steve Jung are professional concept artists who've worked on several Hollywood movies like Snow White and the Huntsman (2012), Marvel's the Avengers (2012) and Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014).

Several changes from the original Planet Zero concept were noted by Screen Crush and are shown in the concept art. For example, the glowing energy is red in the early trailers and this tone shows up in Naeem's work. The tone was changed to green in the film similar to Steve Jung's work. Also, Doctor Doom's black-hole machine is different in Naeem's work. Also, in one version of the film, Doom was supposed to have a massive castle that the group visits.
Jung wrote on his official Facebook page. "I was on this one early on before all the drama happened... none of my work made it to the movie (kinda glad) since it got changed many times after I left the project. Exploration of the Planet Zero and Victor's castle ideations. By the way, the texture of the terrain is cigarette buds from a picture of the director's ashtray."
