JUMBO (LEVIATHAN) & CHARIOT DESIGNS

Down below you'll find a few black and white sketches that Phil Saunders created for alien craft featured in Marvel's The Avengers. Early in development they were referred to as "Jumbo and "Chariot."

"It was unclear pre-script whether the Jumbo would be a vehicle or a creature or some kind of hybrid, but it was always described as being like a whale or dragon-like shape. My first attempts were on the mechanical side, inspired by various kinds of parasitic worms." - Phil Saunders




Phil also reveals that originally Joss Whedon had planned for another alien craft, that would've been integrated into the "Jumbo" craft.

"Originally there was another class of craft like a one-alien flyer that would detach from the Jumbo, and these I envisioned as being the spines of the Jumbo that would drop off like shed scales and unfold into something like wingsuits."
- Phil Saunders


As for the "chariot," Phil explains that this design was put together before the Chitauri were fully realized.

"The chariot was pretty self-explanatory, A craft that would carry a pilot and one or two gunners in the back." - Phil Saunders




MORE EARLY LEVIATHAN DESIGNS






IRON MAN - MARK VII ARMOR TRANSFORMATION

"To design the cruise missile I had to take Josh Herman's beautiful model of the Mk 7 and chop it up, re-articulating it so that I could pack the major components in as tightly as possible with a minimum of theoretical interpenetration. The other goal was to come up with a shape that would allow as much of the actual skin of the suit to be visible but unrecognizable as a suit until the transformation, with a minimum of added panels."
- Phil Saunders

I would have loved to have seen some variations of the Chitauri army themselves. They could've included variations such as Heavy gunners/brutes, Stealth infiltrators with invisible cloaks... etc. Would've made Cap's action sequences a bit more creative, and it would've been pretty awesome if there were scenes of him actually leading some of the National Guard rather than just commanding the cops.

I thought they got the ideas from the Transformers Dark of the Moon for that Leviathan thing, or they have the same artist who worked for both movies, it's just my opinion.
