You've seen character designer Aaron Sims' work in 'Incredible Hulk
' and 'The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor
'. And, if he has his way, you'll be seeing his work soon in the planned X-Men spin-off 'X-Men Origins: Magneto
Although the film was hampered by the recent WGA strike, Sims told MTV Splash page the movie is now due for some rewrites. Like sister project 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine
', the Magneto movie will incorporate familiar Marvel mutants. However Sims is mum on who those characters will be and how they'll be presented.
"The fan base has a vision of what they should look like, and that’s always the challenge," Sims said. "It was the same with ‘The Hulk.’" Sims' designs for The Abomination in that movie were met with fan resistance.
Sims said that fans can expect the 'Magneto
' movie to be dark and serious-minded.
"Remember the scene [from 'X-Men
'] in the concentration camp where you see Magneto as a young boy? It just continues from there," Sims said. "Some people thought that might be too dark, but I really like that. It’s a lot of death and mayhem."
Sims also revealed that he's been busy with other projects, including matte paintings for 'The Spirit
' and work on the 'Green Lantern
In what may be a revelation, Sims told Splash Page that he recently designed the suit for Kilowog, Hal Jordon's burly, non-human trainer in the Green Lantern Corps.
