First teased five years ago in “The Avengers,” Marvel Studios has been building up the threat of Thanos across multiple films now – so much so that one wonders if Josh Brolin’s mo-cap character can live up to the hype.
Speaking at Comic-Con Experience in Brazil recently, Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige says that the purple-skinned character will shock audiences right from the start of “Avengers: Infinity War” by committing a heinous act of some kind:
“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.”
“Avengers: Infinity War” and the upcoming fourth “Avengers” film will serve the climax of ten years of buildup across nearly twenty films. It opens in cinemas in May.
