First Look: Young JUGGERNAUT Costume Designs - X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST
I know, most of you are saying to yourselves, "There was no Juggernaut in X-Men: Days of Future Past." And yes, you're right, Juggernaut did not appear in the film, but he was a last minute scratch. In January, Empire Magazine conducted an interview with Bryan Singer and screenwriter Simon Kinberg that revealed that Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Xavier (James McAvoy) and Beast (Nicholas Hoult) were gonna seek out a young Juggernaut to help them break Magneto out of his Pentagon prison, but he was replaced by Quicksilver (Evan Peters). Which ended up being a grand idea as it produced the most memorable scene in the film.
Conceptual illustrator, Anthony Jones ("God of War: Ascension"), has updated his website with Juggernaut, Iceman and Trask soldiers costume designs that he created for Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past. Hit the jump to check them out!
Actor Josh Helman, who portrayed a young William Stryker in the film, was originally set to play the role of a young Juggernaut. In March, Helman explained what happened to IGN: “I originally got hired on a different role, which is no longer in the script -- it was going to be young Juggernaut, So I was like, ‘Oh, s#!t. I’ve got to put on like 30 pounds!’ So I was training for like four weeks," Helman then added "And then I got a phone call saying, ‘Good news and bad news. Bad news first: Juggernaut’s no longer in the script. Good news: They’re having trouble with another role and they want to see you for it."
