A few days ago, news hit the web that a nearly three-hour-long cut of Avengers: Infinity War was going to be a possibility. The rumor came from Infinity Gauntlet writer Jim Starlin. He told said that he knew that there were a lot of unused and deleted scenes from the movie, a lot of it dealing with Thanos’ backstory. But based on a recent report, it seems like Marvel might not have any plans to release that kind of cut.
Nevertheless, some fresh concept art as hit the web, and it could feature some glimpses of stuff that would have been great to see.
The concept art comes to us courtesy of Marvel’s Pete Thompson, which you can see below.
The first one is of T’Challa’s sister’s, Shuri’s, lab. In addition to being the setting for the record-breaking Black Panther film, Wakanda was the setting for the epic fight with Thanos, so it’s always great to see more of it.
This is the Thresher Attack on Wakanda, the event that marked the “last stand” with Thanos and the Avengers. As we can see, the battle was originally envisioned to be more destructive, with darker skies and a greater “doom” feel.
Here is Thor battling the Black Order. Here we see Thor struggling to fight back against Thanon’s team, while his ship and his fellow Asgardians have already been destroyed.
This one shows another look at the destroyed Asgardian ship, the ship that we saw all Thor’s people depart on at the end of Thor: Ragnarok.
Here is the collector’s room. We never saw Thanos kill the collector in the film, but this appears to be a scene shortly before it happened.
This one appears to be a scrapped idea involving Thanos and the Collector battling it out over the Reality Stone. It looks like it would have made a great scene.
Further destruction on Knowhere.
Thanos’s throne room. There was one scene here involving Thanos having an argument with his adopted daughter, Gamora.
This shows us a darker look at the scene where we first see Nebula in Thanos’s clutches.
The Q Ship Control Room. This gives us an inside look at the ships Thanos’s henchmen use to track down the infinity stones.
Here is a cleaner look at Thanos‘ home world of Titan, before the devastation that lead to the villain’s cosmic crusade.
