As if the final battle for Avengers: Endgame wasn't already big enough, one concept artist suggests another iconic band of Marvel villains had been considered to join in on the fight. In a gallery of new pieces shared by Jerad S. Marantz, the Frost Giants received an updated look, vastly different than how they originally appeared on-screen during the events of Thor (2011). On top of the spikier appearance — formed by their ice-based powers — the Frost Giants also don Thanos-like armor blue and gold in scope. You can see the epically terrifying pieces below.

Here’s one for the cutting room floor. Here are some new takes on the Frost Giants that I did for #avengersendgame. In the final battle, They were considering bringing these guys back. In this concept I am exploring the idea of having them utilize their ice power to generate armor. #frostgiants #avengers #mcu #marvel #marvelcinematicuniverse #loki #ice #conceptart #zbrush #keyshot #design #charaterdesign
Marantz was also behind a massive overhaul for the Outriders, one in which didn't make the movie's final cut. In Avengers: Endgame - the Art of the Movie, Marantz's take involved having the rabid aliens take a much more mechanical approach.
“After looking at the source material, I wanted them to have a biomechanics quality to them,” the artist said in the book. “There was concern that the Outriders may look too much like a Venom symbiote, and the challenge was to ensure they had a unique look. To achieve that, I decided to go biomechanical with them and incorporate the same shapes that are used in Thanos’ armor and Proxima Midnight’s and Corvus Glaive’s.”0comments
