Avengers Infinity Wars screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have confirmed that the movies will have plenty of Thanos moments. The mad titan is touted as one of the most notorious villains in the Marvel Cinematic Universe but his presence in the previous Marvel movies was brief.
The purple-skinned giant alien last appeared in both the Avengers movies and the Guardians Of The Galaxy part 1. As of now, fans have always seen one of the last sons of A'Lars sitting on his throne and commanding his people or plotting his strategies to acquire the Infinity Stones that would make him the supreme power of the Universe.
The super powerful Titanian Eternal has a huge chunk of action sequences in the comic books but he never really evolved in any of the movies. But Markus and McFeely, the screen writers of the upcoming two-part movie, have teased that the mad titan will swing into action and will do "dastardly things".
"I think the problem will be solved simply because he will be the villain, have lots of scenes, and you'll understand his point of view. He'll do lots of dastardly things. I'm not saying he's not a challenge. He is, because he's got so much power, but I guess find the, I'm using this in quotes, 'the human underneath,' but we'll have the opportunity because he'll have a lot of scenes," McFeely told Cinema Blend.
The two-part Infinity Wars will have Thanos as the lead antagonist who is in search of the six 'soul gems' which he would fit in the Infinity Gauntlet. If he is successful in combining all of the six gems namely, Time Gem, Space Gem, Soul Gem, Reality Gem, Power Gem and Mind Gem, he will acquire unimaginable powers over the galaxy.
It will be interesting to see how the Avengers and the Guardians Of The Galaxy will race against time to save the earth and the galaxy from his terror.
Apart from his devious goals, the movie will also reveal a lot about his character. "Like any character, we're going to learn about the character, not just as a villain. If you've got the guy taking you through more or less two movies, he can't just be twisting his mustache the whole time," Markus added.
Avengers: Infinity War - Part I is slated to premiere on 27 April 2018 in the UK and will release a week later on 4 May in the US. Part II is expected to premiere on 26 April in the UK and 3 May in the US. Brothers Anthony and Joe Russo will be directing the films.
