Avengers: Infinity War concept artist Jerad S. Marantz has shared his very first design for Proxima Midnight on his social media.
Thanos was joined by the Black Order in both Avengers films. However in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the group was known as the Children of Thanos. One of the most prominent members of the Children of Thanos was Proxima Midnight, who was played by Carrie Coon. In Avengers: Infinity War, Proxima Midnight died at the hands of Scarlet Witch. The 2014 version of Proxima Midnight was also killed at the end of Avengers: Endgame.
Avengers: Infinity War featured the Marvel Cinematic Universe debut for Proxima Midnight, which meant that she had to be designed from scratch. Avengers: Infinity War concept artist Jerad S. Marantz shared his very first design of Proxima Midnight on Instagram and explained how difficult it was to bring her to life for the film:
“This is my very first concept for #Proximamidnight for #avengers #endgame and #infinitywar. Proxima was a bit of a challenge, she had a very similar headress to Hella and we had to create a new version that still paid homage to the comic. It was my idea to design her with horns. They also seem to like my initial pass at the Costume. Later on I got the note that her arm had to specifically be Armor and not another Marvel robotic arm. For that design I referenced the #chitauri armor and designed from there.”
