New Avengers: Endgame concept art reveals Rocket Raccoon on the verge of attacking Jane Foster to get the Reality Stone from her.
New concept art for Avengers: Endgame has revealed that Rocket Raccoon is trying to attack Jane Foster for the Reality Stone. After losing to Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War and the destruction of gems on the primary MCU timeline, the heroes return in time to collect all six Infinity Stones in hopes of bringing back the dead. With a limited workforce, the Avengers broke into smaller teams as they executed their missions.
Thanks to their undeniable chemistry in Infinity War, Rocket and Thor were once again teamed-up. This time, they found themselves travelling to the events of Thor: The Dark World to get the Reality Stone from Jane. Sadly, five years ago, God of Thunder was still struggling to deal with his failure, so Rocket himself had to perform the task. He roamed the Asgardian Palace, where he made contact with Jane and successfully extracted the stone from her.
The Endgame didn’t show how the whole thing was on screen. Instead, fans were given just a glimpse of how Rocket was able to achieve its mission. However, the newly emerged concept art from the film gives fans an idea of how it went down. Check out the picture below shared by MCU Eternal:
Looking at the concept art, Jane seems to be holding the Rocket just as he was about to hit. Now, there is no guarantee what happened in the Endgame. However, the surviving defenders of the galaxy had to run. This entire sequence was not filmed by Marvel Studios movie because while Natalie Portman appeared on the project, directors Joe and Anthony Russo would only use the deleted scene from The Dark World, which meant that she was never on set. However, she recorded new dialogues for that.
With the Guardians of the Galaxy reportedly appearing in Thor: Love and Thunder, which also mark the official comeback of Portman. It’s intriguing if Portman and Rocket will ever cross paths. If they do, it will be fresh for Jane to remember him from her days in Asgard. That’s one way to tie Avengers: Endgame to the upcoming Taika Waititi movie. If she does not recognize him, a quip from Rocket that mentions their previous encounter is enough.
