We’re finally getting to see what was and wasn’t cut from Avengers: Endgame, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe has revealed there was a whole Thanos backstory that was ‘dusted’ just like he was. Although we got to meet some of the Mad Titan’s extended family, it turns out we missed out on a lot of Thanos during his arc.
Thanos made his presence known in 2012’s The Avengers and slowly emerged as the big bad of the world’s highest-grossing franchise. We’ve already covered how Thanos ‘could’ come back to the MCU (https://www.studentproblems.com/brand-new-avengers-endgame-deleted-scene-may-confirm-thanos-is-alive/), but now, let’s see what the original plan for the character involved.

After concept art appeared in a book accompanying the supersized Marvel’s Infinity Saga Collection, the images were then shared on CBR.com (https://www.cbr.com/mcu-baby-thanos-concept-art/) and showcase teeny Thanos.
Creative Director Ryan Meinerding revealed what was originally thrown around for Thanos. Meinerding claims Infinity War writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely had always wanted to expand the mythos surrounding Thanos.
