While it has generally been thought that Tom Hiddleston’s Loki from “Thor” would serve as the main villain in the upcoming Marvel superhero team-up, Latino Review appears to have uncovered a potential secondary antagonist.
Previous reports have suggested that Loki uses the cosmic cube, the macguffin of the upcoming “Captain America: The First Avenger”, to bring forth the alien race The Skrulls to invade Earth. At the same time he would manipulate The Hulk to turn on the superheroes.
Now, talk of another bad guy has emerged – Thanos. In the comics he’s a mad cosmic tyrant bent on slaying half of all sentient beings in existence. One big part of his outfit is an ‘Infinity Gauntlet’, a jewelled glove.
A glove prop resembling the design was on display at last year’s San Diego Comic Con and made a brief appearance in the Odin’s Vault scenes in “Thor”.
Of course all of this is speculation as no plot points or details have been confirmed, aside from Hiddleston appearing in the film. The project is currently shooting in New Mexico.
