The final battle in Avengers: Endgame redefined the word “epic” for a lot of MCU fans. So many iconic characters from across the franchise fought the good fight together in a moment that marked the end of an era. But if the concept art for the film is any indication, there would have been at least one more important character in the fray. And it was a fan favorite from Black Panther that we haven’t heard from in a while.
An image from the new book Avengers: Endgame – The Art of the Movie shows concept art for the final battle. In the picture (via Comicbook.com) we see some of the characters we saw in the finished film: Captain Marvel, The Wasp, Valkyrie and Gamora. But Nakia is there too, brandishing ring blades and ready to fight. Check out a fan’s tweet of the image:
Nakia’s inclusion in the image is interesting, since — unlike some of her fellow Wakandans — she didn’t appear and wasn’t mentioned in Avengers: Infinity War or Avengers: Endgame.
Nakia is one of the more popular characters that emerged from Black Panther.
