Producer Kevin Feige has promised something big and bad to happen in the first five minutes of Avengers: Infinity War. This would establish Thanos as the big bad guy of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
The MCU is until now doing a great job in narrating the stories of superheroes. Marvel has a lot of fan following with audiences waiting to hit the theaters as soon as any film from the franchise releases. The only area where the studio clearly lacks is in their depiction of villains. All that is going to change considering the kind of impact that the villain Thanos is going to make in Marvel’s upcoming film Avengers: Infinity War.
Speaking about Thanos’ arrival at Brazil Comic-Con, Feige, who made an appearance via video link at a panel at CCXP17 said: “Well it’s certainly the biggest movie we’ve ever made. It is still shooting, we’ve been shooting all year long and Josh Brolin is doing an amazing job of playing Thanos. You know, we’ve been teasing Thanos since the very first Avengers film. Remember the end of Avengers, the very end of the movie he turns around in the chair and you realize something bad is coming. We’ve been teasing him for years and the trick is when you tease something for that long you have to deliver. So, within the first five minutes of Infinity War people will understand why Thanos is the biggest and baddest villain in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”
It is difficult to gauge the kind of impact that Thanos will manage to create since only one trailer has released so far. However, the short teaser gives fans the hint of the chaos that Thanos will bring when he comes to collect the rest of Infinity Stones.
The MCU has mentioned about The Mad Titan in four of its films, and so fans are eagerly waiting to see the mighty villain in all his form and glory.
Feige also mentioned about Thanos getting some help in Avengers: Infinity War. He said, “He’s got some company. He’s got some old faces that you’ll recognize. A certain brother of Thor might show up for a while with him and he has his own team called the Black Order which is a brand-new selection of villains. But really, Thanos doesn’t need much help. He can pretty much take care of it himself.” By referring to Thor’s brother, Feige seems to be indicating Loki’s hand as well. However, it is too early to speculate.
Avengers: Infinity War, directed by brothers Anthony & Joe Russo will hit the theaters on May 4, 2018.
