Old Sonic Movie Concept Features Unused Villain, Sonic Fighting With Chris Evans

Early movie concept art can be pretty weird and cool, and it should surprise no one that this is especially true for the Sonic movie. Twitter user Marx Pan came across some concept art from early 2018 on Chinese microblogging website Weibo.

Created by Weibo users Xu Tianhua Thx and Jin Xiaoyu for Blur Studios, one of the movie’s special effects houses, the concept art showcases a never before seen lizard villain and Sonic getting into a bar fight with Captain America himself, Chris Evans, who was apparently the actor Jeffrey Fowler wanted early on.

This concept art appears to confirm a detail found in the movie’s copyright, which mentioned a lizard villain wanting to use Sonic’s power to take over the universe.

You can check the images out on the Xu Tianhua’s page, or look at them below:

  1. “This concept art appears to confirm a detail found in the movie’s copyright, which mentioned a lizard villain wanting to use Sonic’s power to take over the universe.”

    I remember reading about the copyright’s mention of that villain on TSSZ. (http://www.tssznews.com/2019/12/12/sonic-movie-plot-detail-disclosed-in-copyright-filing/) Glad they didn’t use him in the end. of course he might still appear in a sequel or some future media content related to the movie. >.>

  2. Honestly, this albino Lyric dude looks pretty cool in terms of design. It follows suit with Longclaw in terms of a realistic animal design… I just don’t think he’d fit in as an antagonist within the >first< movie's foundation. It was better that they went with the Echidna tribe and Robotnik… Maybe if a sequel comes around, they could work him in.
