DREDD Concept Artist Jock Working On X-MEN DAYS OF FUTURE PAST
Artist Jock might be best known for his work in comics. However, he's also started moving into developing concept art and promo artwork for Hollywood. A bunch of his credits include Hanna, Batman Begins, Battleship, Man of Steel, The Losers and Dune when Peter Berg was attached to direct. His most notable recent concept artwork being for Dredd as you can see below helped the visuals and costume designs. He confirmed via Twitter that he is working with fellow artist Lee Garbett on costume designs for X-Men Days of Future Past.
Along with new costumes Jock and Lee could also be creating concept artwork for the sentinels and the look for the future world for the mutants. Even helping with the look for a new characters like Cable, who has been rumored for a while now. Stephen Lang who was a major part of Avatar's success had stated he'd love the chance to play the role. This after an online campaign to see him cast as the time-traveling mutant. Considering both Avatar and Days of Future Past are setup at 20th Century Fox it's not hard to believe it's possible.
