‘Avengers: Endgame’ concept art reveals pivotal Captain America scene could have been very different

It's all to do with Mjolnir...

The concept art for Avengers: Endgame has revealed that a pivotal scene for Captain America could have played out very differently.

The climax of the Marvel epic featured the emotional moment when Cap was able to wield Thor’s Mjolnir hammer – which can traditionally only be used by someone who is deemed worthy.

In the final cut, Cap is able to summon the hammer from afar in a scene that aims to show his sheer power and worthiness. However, concept artist Ryan Meinerding’s alternative is peppered with a lot more uncertainty.


Instead, Cap is seen staring indecisively at Mjolnir, seemingly unsure whether he should grab it or not.

“This is a keyframe I did for one of the biggest moments of Endgame. I thought it would be great if we could see Cap uncertain if he could lift Mjolnir or not,” he wrote.

“This was given away as poster at @D23this weekend. Thanks to everyone who came out to our signing today.”

It wasn’t the only exciting nugget of Marvel information that emerged from Disney’s D23 convention over the weekend. It was finally confirmed that Black Panther 2 will arrive in May 2022, while Kit Harington will take on the role of Dane Whitman in The Eternals. 


Jeff Goldblum, meanwhile, had the best reaction after learning Spider-Man won’t be returning to the MCU.
