AVENGERS: ENDGAME's Final Battle Nearly Included The Dark Elves; Identity Of Aliens In Thanos' Army Revealed

Have you been wondering what those gorilla-like creatures in Thanos' army were? Well, one of the movie's VFX artists has now shed some light on that and also revealed scrapped plans for the Dark Elves...

Avengers: Endgame's final battle is truly epic and features Earth's Mightiest Heroes squaring off with an entire army of aliens. Some of them were familiar but others were new, and WETA Digital Visual Effects Supervisor Matt Aitken has now shed some light on who - and what - was on the battlefield. 

As for those massive beasts, it turns out that they're Chitauri gorillas/heavies who were newly created for this movie. "We see the Chitauri leading them out by chains and then they set them free," Aitekn said. "These are not quite King Kong sized, but yeah, giant gorilla-ish, alien gorilla creatures who are a formidable force to be reckoned with on the battlefield."

He added that the rest of the Mad Titan's army was made up of the Outriders from Avengers: Infinity War and the Sakaarans from Guardians of the Galaxy

However, another army very nearly aligned themselves with the villain: Thor: The Dark World's Dark Elves! "At one point, there were going to be - potentially dark elves were going to show up, they didn’t make an appearance. The dark elves were mentioned, but we never got as far as rigging them or making them for the battle."
 
Avengers: Endgame didn't really need the Dark Elves, but it certainly would have made sense considering the fact that we revisited the God of Thunder's second solo adventure in the MCU.
