As we quickly approach the release of the highly anticipated Avengers: Infinity War, more and more concept art is revealed through merchandise and leaked images. Some of this concept art is where we got our first looks at some of the major characters’ costumes including Spider-Man, Captain America, and Iron Man. Now, some new concept art has revealed a completely new and unannounced character that looks to be a villain of some sorts.
POSSIBLE SPOILERS FOR AVENGERS INFINITY WAR
The concept art comes from a leaked image of a mug from an Instagram user.
The mug is villain centric seeing as it only contains two of Thanos’ Black Order, Ebony Maw and Proxima Midnight, as well as the Infinity Gauntlet. The notable thing here is the inclusion of the mysterious character beneath them.
It’s hard to tell who this character is or what role he’ll be playing in the film because he doesn’t resemble many characters in the comics.
This mysterious villain could be the fifth member of the Black Order, Black Dwarf, however, this is unlikely seeing as there isn’t much resemblance to that character, and there’s no clear reason why Marvel wouldn’t announce that character with the other members of the Black Order.
What is more likely is that this villain is an Outrider. In the comics, the Outriders are a race of genetically engineered creatures used by Thanos. The Outriders look to be the alien race invading Wakanda as seen in the Infinity War trailers.
While it’s not clear from the image, this new mystery villain could have four arms like the Outriders, and he could be their leader, or even just a minor member. He more than likely won’t play a huge role in the film.
