Various pieces of concept art from costume illustrator Phillip Boutte Jr. have gone online showcasing alternate costume looks that were considered for characters in Bryan Singer’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past”.
Whilst many of them are quite interesting, most notably Fassbender’s Magneto in a purple crushed velvet single-piece pantsuit, one of them stands out because the character wasn’t in the final film – Jubilee.
Actress Kea Wong cameoed as the character in both “X2: X-Men United” and “X-Men: The Last Stand” with another actress playing her in the first “X-Men”. Two designs for her appearance in ‘Days’ are on display at Concept Art World
Meanwhile, producer Simon Kinberg tells Empire that they did consider fan favorite character Cable for the film – in fact he was being looked at for a pivotal role, the mutant whose mind would be sent back in time:
“Initially, we explored the notion of Bishop being sent back, Cable being sent back, a new character being sent back, who we could cast old and then sort of cast in the prominent part of his life as a new young actor.”
It was ultimately decided that Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine be the one sent back into the past. Bishop (Omar Sy) remained in the movie in a smaller role.
