Juggernaut concept art for X-Men: Days of Future Past

Earlier in the month we got a look at some concept art showing how the character of Jubilee could have appeared in Fox’s mutant sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past [see here], and now illustrator Anthony Jones (God of War: Ascension) has released some artwork featuring a young Juggernaut, who was originally intended to help Professor Xavier (James McAvoy), Beast (Nicholas Hoult) and Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) spring Magneto (Michael Fassbender) from prison, before being replaced by the character of Quicksilver (Evan Peters). Josh Helman was initially cast as Juggernaut (who was previously portrayed by Vinnie Jones in X-Men: The Last Stand), before switching roles to Stryker after the decision to cut him from the film; check out the concept art here….
