It's no secret we're a little more than obsessed with early movie concept art and discovering how some of our favorite characters could have been rendered on the big screen, so don't you think it's time we went in for another deep dive into the film archives?

What would Bane from 'The Dark Knight Rises' have looked like with a mask more attune with the comic and cartoon imaginings? Or Loki, who's become a favorite among cosplayers since 'The Avengers' took over the 2012 summer blockbuster slot? After bringing you some of the early concept designs and sketches for 'Shrek,' 'Star Wars,' 'X-Men' and the like, here are even more examples of movie character conceptions that didn't make the final cut, both from studio archives and concept artist portfolios.
