    I came over these photos over a year ago.. I was first told a connection to X-man 3... But i doubted it. I now saw the Superman Returns game spoiler. And i now belive this costume/ sculpt belongs to the Superman Movie.. The same guy who made X-men made Superman Returns. This scuplt was said to be a SENTIENT.. Give me your thoughts or if anyone have info please share.

    I believe that's a concept sentinel from X-Men 2. They would have been too expensive to include and were abandoned.

    Yup, that is the unused concept Sentinel from X2.

    Can't view the vid, so cannot comment on whether it is used in Superman... though... I wonder why it would.?

    Have to admit,, except for the center torso area, matches up decently. You never know...

    The reason why i wounder there is a connection is because the Sculpt you seen is almost the person inside the Metallo Monster in Superman Returns.
    Also the maker of X-men is the SAME Person that made Superman.
    Could it be that some thought this was for X-men 2 but in fact it was for superman.

    And why a Senitiel in X-men 2 .. It did not have room for that in the X-men 2 story.. It does not fit in..

    Also the Metallo Monster in Superman Returns looks like this sculpt.. With a Center Oval Shape on the chest. The construction is very similar. But more striking is the person controlling the Metallo monster. He is stitting inside the monsters chest behind a Green ovel glass.

    As far as the movie.
    If you did not se the movie then maybe you did not wait long enought it is a 32 mb download and it takes some time. Just grab a coffy or sit down on the toilet and read a paper for some while and maybe after your done you have a movie flick to watch :D

    Actually other than both being robotic creatures of some sort, they don't really match up that well at all. Not that this thing couldn't have evolved into that (production wise)...

    Might want to add "spoiler" to the title of this thread.

    Whatever it is, I don't like the way it looks. That's just me, though.

    Just got this from a reliable source:

    So although it's NOT in the movie, you're right in thinking that it does resemble
    the game character "Metallo" (which I haven't seen yet).

    *ss*

    Sorry. My computer is F-ed up. I've tried getting it to play the file, but it refuses. I can't figure out what's wrong and I have downloaded and installed several codec packs but have never been able to play all files, no matter what I try.

    But it's interesting that design ideas is carried over from one movie to the next.

    Since Sentinents are in X-Men is which is Marvel and Superman is DC I doubt it would be in the same movie together.

    AUGHH. There's no such word as "Sentinents" or "Senitient". It's Sentinel. Easy. Simple. There's also the word "sentient" which means you are self-aware, and capable of emotional reasoning.

    And they are from Xmen, not Superman. Looks butt-ugly, though.

    THANK you. I thought my brain was going to explode if I had to read "Sentinent" one more time.

    Actually I'm 99% sure that is a Sentinel from X2, I've seen the concepts for them, looks just like one of them.

    it doesnt fit in the story you saw, because its a concept which was thrown out early and not in the final script, you can see prepro sketches of it in the special features of x2
    if they got the money to do it they would have sentinels planned and would write it to fit them in the story,

    its not rocket science :rolleyes

    superman wise.......all the stuff in the game wont be in the movie, like most movie adaptations games their going to add alot more villians for you to fight, the stuff you see in the game captures, wont all be in the movie, so dont count on seeing supes fight a giant robot just because its in the game,
