Andy Park , one of Marvel’s core concept artists, has posted another early design for Ego. Clearly made before Kurt Russell came aboard, it shows a much more immediately villainous take on the character. It also shows the humanoid form of Ego more integrated into the planet itself, something Park says he was shooting for with the design.

Check it out below:

My take? Too red. Why the fuck is it so red? Do living planets have that much red in them? And I would expect the integration to be more dynamic. It just looks like he’s standing there oozing shit onto a tree. I don’t like it and I think Marvel should have better talent.
