Marvel Studios artist Jerad Marantz revealed Proxima Midnight’s Avengers: Infinity War armor was inspired by Thanos’ look in Guardians of the Galaxy.
Proxima Midnight made her MCU debut in Infinity War along with the Children of Thanos in Infinity War. Proxima was voiced by Carrie Coon and was among the many casualties of Infinity War, defeated by Black Widow, Okoye, and Scarlet Witch. Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War – The Art of the Movie book was released earlier this week and Marantz revealed Proxima’s design was inspired by Thanos’ armor in Guardians of the Galaxy:
“I took a lot of Proxima’s look from the comics, it was an honor to be able to establish her design in the film. I played around with her black-and-white suit and broke up the panels. I reworked her armored arm to expose more of her costume to show that it was clearly armor and not another Marvel mechanical arm. I designed the armor in ZBrish based on the armor Thanos was wearing in Guardians Of The Galaxy. I was able to get the design approved in the first pass. I also decided to incorporate armor on her opposite leg for balance.”
