Thomas Nelson -- a very talented storyboard and concept artist -- recently updated his web site with some cool artwork he prepared for director James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Not only do the storyboards depict scenes that did not happen in the Marvel movie, but we also have a look at a character that was originally in the script but was ultimately dropped: Lord Tantalus. We also have a look at the different costumes (and overall looks) that seem to have been considered for the main characters (don't forget, those are sketches done to use in storyboards, not concept art).
Early last year, James Gunn told AMC Movie News: "Tantalus was in for a while. If we’re fortunate enough to make another film in the future, there’s plenty of characters to bring in."
@nailbiter111 All true except it's not concept art - it's simply sketches to be used in storyboards.— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) March 29, 2015
If you want to know more about who Lord Tantalus is, head on up to Marvel’s official web page. In the meanwhile, have a look at the gallery down below, and let us know what you think about Lord Tantalus. Would you have liked to see the character in Guardians of the Galaxy? Do you think he could show up in a sequel?
