However, if you’re curious about other “what-ifs,” some newly revealed Detective Pikachu concept art gives insight into unused character designs and an awesome Charizard Vs. Gyarados battle that we almost got. See the Detective Pikachu concept art by artist R.J. Palmer below.

In the years following the release of 1999’s groundbreaking The Matrix, dozens of films and TV shows tried to ape the grim, apocalyptic world of the Wachowski’s films. But none could really nail the elaborate, weird, and grotesque designs that was crafted by The Matrix concept artists Geof Darrow and Steve Skroce, who along with Jim Martin, helped create the eye-popping style of the sci-fi franchise.

In early January of 2013, a few months after The Walt Disney Company had purchased Lucasfilm, a meeting was called to establish concept art for the film that would become Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This was long before a script was in place, and even a few weeks before J.J. Abrams was officially announced as the film’s director. One of the people present was Doug Chiang, a talented concept artist who now serves as Lucasfilm’s vice president and executive creative director, and you may have seen some of the concept art that was produced in the days after that early meeting.

It’s been about a year and a half since Justice League hit theaters, and there are still fans who are clamoring for Zack Snyder‘s original cut of the DC Comics superhero movie that never made it to theaters. In fact, there’s a GoFundMe campaign that raised $20,000 to pay for a small campaign at Comic-Con to promote the mere desire of some fans to see the director’s cut of Justice League.
In the meantime, Zack Snyder continued to add fuel to the fire and keep the social media outlet Vero in business with a Father’s Day post that tantalized fans about what they didn’t see happen in Justice League. The filmmaker posted a piece of concept art with the villain Darkseid laying waste to a planet by enacting the Anti-Life Equation, which is meant to illustrate how hope, love, and freedom are all meaningless. Darkseid uses the mathematical formula and an entire army to spread despair and destruction. Read More »
