5 Upcoming Movie Character Depictions That Should Concern You

There are countless comic book movies being released in the next few years, with everyone from DC, Marvel, Mirage and Valiant getting in on the act - and why not? The genre is arguably the most popular in Hollywood at the moment, so they are right to exploit it with as many releases as possible - strike while the iron's hot, so they say.

As a result, we can look forward to a plethora of characters from the pages of comic books making live action appearances - some of which look and sound absolutely fantastic, some of which don't.

It is the latter that we're going to be taking a look at here, as we run you through some upcoming character depictions that may well turn out to be terrible.

We certainly hope these guys turn out well, but we have doubts about them as things stand. Here are five upcoming comic book movie character depictions that should concern you.

Apocalypse

Recently, the general public were treated to the first images from the set of 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse.

It's got a distinct 80's look to it - it is set in the 1980's, after all - and the majority of the characters look really cool, but the titular villain's appearance was quite disappointing.

As far as his powers and threat-level are concerned, we don't have much to worry about regarding Oscar Isaac's character. The post-credits scene of X-Men: Days of Future Past showed a younger version of the character demonstrating massive telekinetic powers - and he'll only have grown more powerful (both naturally and through technological augmentation) since then.

However, in terms of his aesthetics, he looks like a cheaply-created Doctor Who villain from the 1970s or something even cheesier out of Power Rangers.

Hopefully he's going to be visually augmented with CGI, otherwise he could end up being ruined by his appearance alone. He needs to be bulkier - more in line with the physique of the Hulk - and his face definitely needs to look more monstrous.
