New Concept Art For ‘Quantumania’
Concept artist Aleksi Briclot went on Instagram to share his work on Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania. The concept art was from the early stages of visual development, of an alternate version of MODOK (played by Corey Stoll). The artist described this as a “twisted and f***ed up version” of the character.
An early concept for MODOK for AntMan and the Wasp : QUANTUMANIA. A twisted and f***ed up version starting from Darren Cross / Yellow Jacket (played by #coreystoll )having endure the hard and transforming environment that is the quantum realm. Making him a Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing. Always a challenge to keep the link with the material source from the comics and pushing it further while embracing the whole concept of his roots in the movie. At some point some idea about some quantum geysers emerged, aging, deagging and transforming things. I jumped on the idea and thought about a twisted reconfiguration (was I thinking about the Fly by Cronenberg? Maybe a little bit in the concept…). One part of the challenge was to keep Darren Cross likeness hidden to be later a reveal.Aleksi Briclot on Instagram

Cassie Lang escapes MODOK while Giant-Man fights a Kaiju in the background. Production Designer Will Htay revealed that this took “a while” to develop but sadly didn’t make the cut.

More concept art from Quantumania. This one is Kang’s crash in the Quantum Realm by @thomasducrest @framestore. We went through a few versions of how Kang came to be there… for a while his Time Sphere featured even more, it still has a pivotal place in his story. Designing the design language for Kang bringing order to the chaos was fun.Will Htay on Instagram
I’m honored and excited to have the opportunity to work at Marvel with such top talent and learned from so many artists I look up to….what a joy I had working on this version of Kang …..I was constantly looking at Jack Kirby’s original design and I tried to keep that iconic graphic language and translate that into reality keeping to what the fan base knows from the comics…….major thank u to Andy Park for bring me into his talented team of artists that we helped push each other to do our bestConstantine Sekeris on Instagram
I had an incredible time working with the team over at marvel visual development. The project was led by the insanely talented Andy Park. I got to work on a lot of characters and creatures for the movie. Early on I was doing a ton of sketches for Quantum citizens and freedom fighters. I pitched the idea of a slime guy and it went over well. I started with an initial sketch and got to take him this far. The idea was really fun. Basically the character shoots his own slime and Ed crawls back to him. His weapon is a combination vacuum and gun.Jerad S.Marantz on Instagram
I’m pretty sure this guy ended up becoming Veb in the movie. There was an incredible team on this show and it looks like the character evolved beyond my time on the project.
