Avengers Directors Wanted To Bring Back This Dead Character In Endgame
I think it’s almost obvious now that no one ever really dies permanently in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We saw that with Loki, who was killed off at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, but made a comeback in Endgame. But, there’s another dead character that the Russo Brothers wanted to bring back in Avengers: Endgame.
Russo Brothers wanted to bring back Proxima Midnight in Avengers: Endgame
If you recall correctly, Proxima Midnight (Carrie Coon) was one of the “children” of Josh Brolin’s Thanos. But, she was killed off by Elizabeth Olson’s Scarlett Which in Infinity War in the battle at Wakanda. Many of us were happy that she died, but it wasn’t going to stay like that initially.
It turns out that the Russo Brothers wanted to bring back Proxima in the final Avengers film. But, it wasn’t possible for Coon due to a scheduling conflict. While talking to PeopleTV’s Couch Surfing, Coon revealed:
“I got a voice-over audition. It was not specified what the project was. They were being very secretive about it, but I was given some of the lines that did end up being in the film.”
Coon then revealed why the Russo Brothers couldn’t fit her into Avengers: Endgame:
“[The Russos] were excited about the possibility of me actually physicalizing the character as well, and they invited me to come down to Atlanta. I was pregnant and doing a play at the time, so I flew down and was on set with them for about 12 hours.”
And so, Proxima did not get any dialogue in the last Avengers movie. But, she did make an appearance. However, you had to really squint your eyes to spot her. However, Coon did not rule out the possibility of her own Marvel standalone film (jokingly), saying:
“No one ever dies. It’s very possible I could have my own Avengers movie next. But I wouldn’t hold your breath.”
