Ever watch the final battle in Avengers: Endgame and think to yourself, “This is pretty great, but it can use just a little bit more of…something”? Have you ever probed that thought to the point where you realize just what that thing is? “Oh, that’s right,” you’d tell yourself. “I’m missing ants. Giant ants brought forth by Giant Man to help take on the armies of the Mad Titan Thanos.”
Well, if that’s how you felt, then you’re apparently not alone. At one point at the concept stage, there existed an extra detail that would not only have ants come to Giant Man’s aid, but they’d come in the form of giant ANT-ANT walkers. No, that’s not a typo. Take a look at what concept artist Jackson Sze came up with for the film.

So, not only do we have giant ants, but we have the likes of Groot, Rocket, and Doctor Strange all teaming up to ride on these bad boys’ backs, presumably rocking the hell out of Thanos’ mighty army.
