No one can objectively call Thanos—eliminator of half the universe—cute.
As it turns out, there was a slightly cuter Thanos being considered to appear on Avengers: Endgame, but he was wiped out from the film likely because there were too many characters. You could say it was a meta move.
While the internet remains obsessed with “Baby Yoda,” Ian Joyner, a concept artist who has worked with Marvel Studios for years, has revealed his iteration for Baby Thanos on Instagram.
All the hype surrounding “Baby Yoda” reminded Joyner of one of his illustrations “on what our favorite purple space maniac would look like as a wee Bebe.”
The infant Thanos is depicted with a button nose, wrinkly skin and bumpy skin.
Joyner shared that while the Baby Thanos scene didn’t make it in the final cut of Endgame, “it was a total blast to work on it.”
Understandably, internet users haven’t described the character as adorable, considering the destruction he would cause later in his life.
“We found Baby Thanos, now we can strangle him,” one Instagram user replies.
They say all babies are beautiful. How about newborn Thanos?

Just saw that this became a meme and I feel I have really accomplished something with my life. Watch out baby Yoda, here comes Baby #Thanos! Did a few passes on what our favorite purple space maniac would look like as a wee Bebe. Although this scene did not make the final cut of the film it was a total blast to work on it. The Art of Avengers: Endgame is out now, full of concepts both used and unused from the film! As always a total honor to be a small part of it.#avengers #avengersendgame #conceptart #mcu #marvel #marvelcinematicuniverse #babythanos
