While Marvel Studios has had trouble bringing great villains to the big screen, I think I’m with the majority when I say that Thanos is a character I can’t wait to see in Avengers: Infinity War. The mad Titan has been teased as the definitive Marvel villain since The Avengers landed in theatres, but now his time of reckoning is near.
On the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige made a promise to fans that the villain will be handled properly in Infinity War. It seems like Thanos will be more than a traditional Marvel villain in the upcoming movie.
Thanos in Infinity War is – in a movie that has a lot of characters, you could almost go so far as to say he is the main character, and that’s a bit of a departure from what we’ve done before, but that was appropriate for a movie called Infinity War.
It’s exciting to hear that Marvel is working towards making its villains better. After year’s of waiting for Thanos to bring his destructive wrath to Earth it would be worrying to hear that he wouldn’t have a major role.
