An early piece of concept art for Avengers: Endgame reveals an unused look for Josh Brolin’s Thanos.
Now that both Avengers: Endgame and Infinity War are on home video, we’ve been getting a consistent stream of behind-the-scenes footage and concept art that show us exactly what it took to get some of the most ambitious films ever made. A film on the scale of Avengers: Endgame has a plethora of concept art to back all of the design choices made in the film. An area that always has multiple pieces of concept art attached to it is costumes and character looks. With so many films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, things are bound to change as characters progress.
When it came to Josh Brolin’s Thanos, concept artist Jerad S. Marantz knew that he had to go big to show off the characters ferocious side. The concept artist thought that Josh Brolin’s Thanos should have an armor that was Spartan-like for Avengers: Endgame. You can check out an early design for Josh Brolin’s Thanos below. Be sure to swipe right so you get all the concept art from Avengers: Endgame showing off Josh Brolin as the Mad Titan.

Here’s my early design pass on Warrior Thanos for Avengers Endgame and Infinity War. In this design I went a bit more spartan and got some good traction with the Russo Brothers. Though I do like this version, I am very proud of the final armor design. I feel like it was a good call and that the armor I designed in film matched Thanos’s character much more than in this pass. You can catch this work and more in the art of Endgame book. So many incredible pieces in there from so many insanely talented artists. #avengersendgame #avengersinfinitywar #thanos #warriorthanos #childrenofthanos #mcu #marvel @joshbrolin #zbrush #keyshot #characterdesign #conceptart #costume @therussobrothers #themadtitan #thesnap #avengers #thanos
The early concept art is certainly more revealing of Thanos’ skin unlike the final design we received in Avengers: Endgame. This suit is also noticeably less bulky and seems to be more of an organic fit. However, it also doesn’t fully show off how much of a beast Josh Brolin’s Thanos is. This piece of concept art, along with many others, can be found in Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame – The Art of the Movie.
