See the Secret Ending That Almost Concluded Rise of the Planet of the Apes

This past summer, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes continued the promise of the Planet of the Apes reboot/retelling begun by the surprisingly restrained Rise of the Planet of the Apes. The first film featured a post-credits scene elegantly explaining why humanity dwindles, but originally the post-credits scene was much crazier, connecting the imagery of the new Apes films with the original film’s most memorable scene.

Rise director Rupert Wyatt and concept artist Brian Cunningham recently unveiled the below three images, revealing what was next for Caeser.

You maniacs.

Considering that Dawn is taking a more deliberate pace with explaining how the apes come to dominate the planet, perhaps this is how the third movie will open.
