Avengers: Endgame concept art reveals a cooler alternative look to the heroes’ time travel suit. Marvel Studios ran a measured campaign for the Infinity Saga’s culminating film – not even revealing its official title until several months before its release. However, one particular element of the narrative that had been long-speculated was the use of time travel, which the film ultimately confirmed.
Following their devastating loss at the hands of Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, the remaining characters find a way to bring back those who perished via the decimation in Endgame. Borne out of Scott Lang/Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) with Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) making it a reality, they travel back in time to collect all six Infinity Stones from different MCU history points to create their own gauntlet. The gang was broken up to smaller groups – each team designated a specific time, location, and Infinity Stone, with the heroes equipped with their brand new white and red Quantum Realm suit.
Before Marvel Studios settled on what ended up on the big screen, there were a couple of options for the Avengers time-traveling armor for Endgame. Over the last several months, different iterations of the costume have popped out online – some just different in color, others look straight-up weird. The latest ones from Aleksi Briclot, however, make the suit look sleeker and more modern. Check them out below:
Endgame‘s Quantum Realm suits combine three design elements – first, it uses Stark’s nano-tech, Hank Pym’s Quantum abilities, and Kree-tech’s ability for the retractable face-piece. All of those seem to be present in Briclot’s time travel costume. It’s curious how this is supposed to work compared to what fans saw on the big screen. Looks-wise, it’s slimmer than the official costume, without any the heavy chest plate that’s reminiscent of Iron Man’s earlier suit aesthetic. As cool as these alternate ones are, it might be too modern looking for something that Tony, with the help of other heroes, created for Endgame. It does make sense that the film version appeared more mechanical than this one considering that they’re essentially created in a short amount of time – meaning, the Avengers also had to be creative with how they built and designed the armor, as well as what materials they used for it.
Regardless, Avengers: Endgame gave Earth’s Mightiest Heroes the closest they can get in terms of battle uniforms. So, what do you all think about this guys?
