Concept art reveals Thanos Vormir’s deleted attack scene in Avengers Endgame
- Fans of Avengers Endgame finally got to see the deleted secondary scene of Thanos’ attack on Vormir.
- Concept Art revealed Thanos was appearing in Vormir to stop Hawkeye and Black Widow from taking the Soul Stone.
- The filmmaker’s initial plans were to add a fight scene to Vormir, but they replaced it with an emotional scene where Natasha dies.
Inside the story
Marvel fans were shocked when they realized that a scene of Thanos in Avengers Endgame had been deleted. But now they can see the deleted scene thanks to the concept of art. According to the sources, the new art will reveal itself in Avengers Endgame, Thanos would have faced Hawkeye and Black Widow on Vormir.
In the final Phase 3 movie, the remaining Avengers traveled back in time to find all of the Infinity Stones and destroy them before Thanos found them and wiped out half of the universe. Each member of the team traveled to specific places in the Universe where the stones are located. Hawkeye and Black Widow returned in 2014 to win the Soul Stone.
When they got to the cliff, Red Skull said that one of them had to be sacrificed to earn the Soul Stone. Hawkeye and Black Widow are both ready to sacrifice themselves, but in the end, Natasha makes a sacrifice after a little scuffle with Hawkeye. His death echoes a similar incident in Infinity War where Thanos sacrifices his daughter Gamora.
This moment happened in an alternate timeline in 2018, which means the three characters (Hawkeye, Thanos, and Black Widow) never intersect. However, the invisible art of Ryan Meinerding, who is Marvel’s head of visual development, reveals that it may not have been.
The art reveals that during the early stages of production of the film, Thanos would have arrived on Vomir and attacked Hawkeye and Black Widow and prevented them from taking the Soul Stone.
In concept art, the duo hide behind rocks. And then, Thanos looms in the background. Even Hawkeye star Jeremy Renner had spoken to fans about Vormir’s alternate scene. He revealed that the creator’s original plan was to involve a fight between Thanos and a team of aliens. Check out the full concept art below.
Sadly, the epic scene has been removed in favor of a tearful scene where Black Widow dies. Sadly, fans didn’t get a chance to see the classic battle where two most skilled humans would fight against the badass baddies.
It could have created more tension among the fans. But Endgame had enough bloodshed and action for a blockbuster, so in the end, it was a wise decision to remove that scene. If you haven’t seen the full art scene yet, you can check it out by clicking here.
