Avengers: Infinity War - Rhodey Remote Piloting War Machine (2016)

Another unused scene from the early Infinity War script. Rhodey was originally going to be in the battle in Edinburgh along with Bruce Banner piloting Hulkbuster. It would have been revealed, however, that he was actually piloting it remotely as he was still suffering from PTSD from his crash during the events of Civil War. I liked the character arc of him eventually having to get back in the suit, but we'd already done a similar reveal in Iron Man 3, so it felt like a repeated beat. Still a fun exercise to design the gimbal rig that attaches to his leg braces though. The Hulkbuster, Proxima Midnight and Corvus Glaive models used in the image were the work of the brilliant Josh Nizzi, Adam Ross and Jared Marantz, and Jared Marantz and Ian Joyner respectively.
