Thanos Backstory Talk & Spidey Sequel Set Pics

Jim Starlin, the comics writer who created iconic Marvel villain Thanos, has revealed that this Summer’s “Avengers: Infinity War” cut out around 30 minutes of material related to the Mad Titan’s backstory.

Appearing at Las Vegas Comic Con recently, Starlin indicated fans could have gotten far more insight into the character beyond only two real established character traits – a desire to forcibly enact a population control policy on the universe, and a deep love of his daughter Gamora.

Collider reports that Marvel Studios may add the footage into an extended cut of the film in the wake of the monumental reception to the first film and the current tenth anniversary of Marvel Studios.

There’s also the question of how much of it is being held back by directors Joe and Anthony Russo for the fourth “Avengers” which is currently in post-production ahead of a May 2019 release.

Marvel is also busy right now at work on “Spider-Man: Far from Home” which recently began production. The first set pics from the ‘Homecoming’ sequel have made it online showcasing Tom Holland back at work as Peter Parker in Hertfordshire, England. Pics from that shoot are up at Just Jared, while a new shot below confirms the return of the character of deli store owner Delmar in the new movie.
