Last week, Amalgamated Designs put up a slideshow showing off several different concept pieces for Deadpool’s look in the film X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Today, they’ve posted a similar slideshow, but this time for the character The Blob. Played by actor Kevin Durand in the film, the character goes through a pretty drastic transformation that turns him into the character we know. Here’s what AD had to say about the process:
“The challenge of taking Blob off the comic page and putting him in front of the camera was developing a look that was massive, but powerful. The script required him to be huge from overeating so it couldn’t all be muscle. And it had to work as a practical effect that actor Kevin Durand could bring to life.”
The effects in X-Men Origins: Wolverine were part of the reason many fans reacted negatively to the film. Do you think any of these are better?
