X2: X-MEN UNITED Sentinels Concept Art

Film Sketchr has revealed unused sentinel concept art from X2. Compared to what we've seen in the latest film, the designs provided by Guy Hendrix Dyas ("Superman Returns") and Ricardo Delgado ("The Matrix: Reloaded") are very different.

The designs above and below were created by Ricardo Delgado and Guy Hendrix Dyas. "The Sentinels were considered briefly for the X-Men sequel, and I drew up a version to a great collective yawn from everyone involved." said Ricardo Delgado. As you can tell, the models we could have seen in X2  vary greatly when compared to what we saw in Days of Future Past. The sentinels here are much more clunky and robotic, while the models we saw in DOFP are slick and thin. Around the time of X2's release, Bryan Singer, the director of X-Men, X2, and Days of Future Past, told TotalFilm that "We felt, for X2, the concept of giant robots is a difficult sell. But it's definitely something we may have room for in the future.". Simon Kinberg told IF Magazine "There never was a Sentinel script that veered away from the story we ended up with. I have no idea where the rumors came from, but it may have something to do with the Sentinel in the danger room. It also might have something to do with the fact that there was an earlier draft of X-MEN 2 that had Sentinels in it.". Apparently, adding sentinels to the film would have also added another $8 million to the budget of the film, which contributed to the cutting of their appearance.

Those are better than the Sentinels we got in DOFP.
GamerKT - 6/7/2014, 12:20 PM
The second one, with a different color scheme, would be sick.
SuperCat - 6/7/2014, 12:23 PM
That third one is interesting.
charlie2094 - 6/7/2014, 12:24 PM
Nice find!

Interesting, but prefer the ones we eventually got, future ones at least. Had a very cool, sleek design
npamusic - 6/7/2014, 12:24 PM
Noice. like the Sentinels from the comics!
CaptainAmerica - 6/7/2014, 12:25 PM
@BlackSpider, No they're not you dipshit.
Destined - 6/7/2014, 12:25 PM
Agreed Supercat and Charlie!
Brainiac13 - 6/7/2014, 12:27 PM
Those look much better than the ones they used in DOFP.....



Nice find MBJ. :)
NovaCorpsFan - 6/7/2014, 12:29 PM
I like the second one.
Pasto - 6/7/2014, 12:30 PM
CaptainAmerica
It's my opinion.
NightWatcher - 6/7/2014, 12:31 PM
Nice Sketches.
Brainiac13 - 6/7/2014, 12:32 PM
First two are good.
Brainiac13 - 6/7/2014, 12:32 PM
@BlackSpider

Are you Pasto?

MARVELPSYCHO79 - 6/7/2014, 12:34 PM
BTW,those Sentinels look like shit.
TheRationalNerd - 6/7/2014, 12:35 PM
Just goes to show they were aiming to do it and I respect that.
DaVinci31 - 6/7/2014, 12:36 PM
I would have really enjoyed seeing the giant Sentinels on screen :l

Nick56 - 6/7/2014, 12:39 PM
DOFP sentinels were awesome. The 70s ones were like the classic ones and the future ones were scary as [frick]
DaVinci31 - 6/7/2014, 12:40 PM
Nice find btw, MBJ.

TheAbaryMan369 - 6/7/2014, 12:40 PM
Great find. They look retarded though.
sameoldthing - 6/7/2014, 12:41 PM
The second one looks cool,big & intimidating with correct color scheme it's far superior to the retro Sentinals in the movie.
The movie had skinny toy looking robots..pathetic.
Future ones were good thankfully.
Bryanavengers - 6/7/2014, 12:47 PM
cool find....not these designs are not new they were on the Xmen 2 DVD not new news
ThePowerCosmic - 6/7/2014, 12:47 PM
Hated the DOFP future Sentinel designs. Nothing about them even reminded me of any version of sentinels in the comics. I know things change for film, but I hate when they are so detached they are really only related to the source material in name only.

They could have at least looked something like Nimrod. Instead Singer decided to just make his own version. The film was good though.
ManCalledSting - 6/7/2014, 12:57 PM
Those look interesting, but I like what we got in DoFP, past and future.
Alfredo27 - 6/7/2014, 1:05 PM
anyone saying those are better than DOFP probably loves Thor 2.

Those looking frucking horrible
Alfredo27 - 6/7/2014, 1:05 PM
1 DOFP sentinel could take out the entire Centuri invasion force
sameoldthing - 6/7/2014, 1:08 PM
The future Sentinals did have the annoying "face blast" that is a complete rip off of Thor movie Destroyer.
I mean really? Fox,didn't you see that was already done before not so long ago you unoriginal bastards.
Ha..well,imitation is greatest form of flattery I suppose.
ShelfPorn - 6/7/2014, 1:10 PM
I'm confused, shouldn't the thousands of comic books be the concept art? Well the Sentinels in DOFP were absolutely hideous. They weren't Sentinels at all. Huge detraction from a good movie.
aRandomSinisterClone - 6/7/2014, 1:10 PM
the top right looks awesome
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 6/7/2014, 1:10 PM
Those look great
MrReese - 6/7/2014, 1:12 PM
Add purp 2 the 2nd 1 & it's perfect.
sKeemAn - 6/7/2014, 1:20 PM
For the time these would not have been that bad. Its wierd how we see them now for a movie almost 10 years ago, and we can think what could've been...`
NeoBaggins - 6/7/2014, 1:21 PM
Awe, yeah. Long as the head looks like the comics I'm fine with the [frick]ed up bodies.
batz11 - 6/7/2014, 1:29 PM
BlackSpider (BS) is Pasto, don't let the "BS" fool ya ;)
AlphaAndDecima - 6/7/2014, 1:30 PM
I loved what we got in DOFP with the Sentinels designs in both past and present. They made sense.
Namor - 6/7/2014, 1:34 PM
Who cares they had face blasts? I mean, just because Destroyer did dosen't mean other villians cant. Were gonna run outta powers to be used in the movies if thats the case.
CaptainAmerica - 6/7/2014, 1:37 PM
BlackSpider, it is my opinion that you're a dipshit.
Maxi91291 - 6/7/2014, 1:39 PM
These look awesome ... top right one is sick .... with a silver-purple color scheme it wouldve been kewl.


People hate on the nimrods from DOFP ? I guess its about opinions but they were sooo badaaass .... unstoppable, menacing, scary and actually effective and successful in killing the heroes .... unlike other superhero obstacles.

NIMRODS/SENTINELS FTW !




SimpleeComplex - 6/7/2014, 1:43 PM
@alfredo what "Centuri" r u talkin about?
-Centuri aliens from Babylon 5?
-Chitauri aliens from MCU's The Avengers?
-or Centuri that's something totally different and unrelated

Just curious
SimpleeComplex - 6/7/2014, 1:43 PM
