Concept Art: Mel Gibson as Wolverine in Original "X-Men" Film

Posted: May 9th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Concept Art: Mel Gibson as Wolverine in Original "X-Men" FilmSubmit Comment
By now everyone knows the story of how Russell Crowe was offered the role of Wolverine in Bryan Singer's 2000 "X-Men" movie. The actor ended up turning it down and strongly recommending Hugh Jackman, who eventually got the part.

But before all that, Mel Gibson was offered the part. It's not clear how close he got to actually playing the character, but today we have an idea of what the actor would have looked like as Wolverine.

The concept art comes from artist Miles Teves, who has worked on such films as "Total Recall" and "RoboCop." Check out the image below.

It's sad that you can now say that you worked on Robocop and Total Recall, and that's not enough info to know what movies are being talked about.

Mel was about 43 then
not that old but he hasnt aged well
and physically it would have been too much for him

Who comes up with these casting ideas?

Mel Gibson to Singer- "I hope you get raped by a pack of n*ggers!!"

Decent drawing, but the hand is wrong because the coat doesn't show any movement. In other words, the coat should be compressed because the hand, and thus the arm to which its connected, is being drawn across the chest. As it stands, the hand looks like it's floating.

Very good rendering, but not a very good composition.

He actually would have fit the comic version better. He could get to that rage better. Hugh is too much of a gentleman.


And why the hell does Bryan Singers gay ass think only Australians can play Wolverine?
minkowski writes:
on May 9th, 2014 at 8:50:47 PM

Probably because he prefers his men out back and down under.

f*ck Bryan Singer, even his biggest claim to cred The Usual Suspects is overrated.

Some sh*tty filmmakers sucking off hollywood these days. Nolan, Singer, Bay, Webb. Any quality filmmakers working?

James Cameron.

They just f*cking having him look like either "Mr. Hyde" from "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" ... or Oliver Reed on a bender.

You know if Mel played Wolverine, he would've asked if his character got to carve up Erik Magnus Lehnsherr, since even Hitler wanted to incarcerate Erik.

Mel's Wolverine would've beaten the sh*t out of Kitty Pryde and called her a f*cking bitch.

Well I'll be damned.
There seems to be a refreshing lack of stupidity in the comments section all of a sudden.
If this has anything to do with the fact that I finally used the "contact us" section of this site, I'm impressed.

And if that is indeed the case (or hell, even if it's not) thank you to whoever finally took the time to do something. It is genuinely appreciated.
