FANTASTIC FOUR: Bizarre Dr. Doom Prototype Arm; Plus Nicolas Cage Concept Art

A must see! Check out a Doctor Doom test arm that was created by Steve Johnson's XFX studio during pre-production of a Fantastic Four movie, that would've had Nicolas Cage in the villainous role.



At some point in the past Steve Johnson's XFX studio made a pitch to be the special effects team for a Fantastic Four film. Based on an early script they created a rather bizarre, yet intriguing mechanical arm for Dr. Doom. A role that Steve Johnson says was at one point filled by Nicolas Cage ("Ghost Rider"). They even have concept art of Dr. Doom's mask designs based on the shape of Nic Cage's face. Thoughts?

"This arm and original painting, which the arm design was based on, were produced by Steve Johnson's XFX studio based on an early version of the script. They were made as examples and demonstrations on how Doctor Doom would have looked if the studio had done the final work on the character." - Elemental Auctions


"Doctor Doom Test Arm - created for pre-production makeup and effects tests, made when Nicolas Cage was original cast in the role." - Steve Johnson









NICOLAS CAGE AS DR. DOOM

While this is based on Marilyn Manson, Nic Cage was to star in this version of The Fantastic 4. It seems that anything that Cage was connected to at XFX was cursed. Superman, Fantastic 4 and Ghostrider were all conceptualized by XFX and none of the films were made." - Steve Johnson


Concept Art Created By Constantine Sekeris



If you're as much of a fan of Constantine's brilliant artwork I would suggest picking up a copy of his book, MetamorFX: Art of Constantine Sekeris.
