We all know Thanos is the big bad villain in Avengers Infinity War Part I and II and we all know that he originally featured in Guardians Of The Galaxy 1. This interconnected link has led a huge chunk of fans to speculate about a possible crossover.
Now, writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have asked fans to do the maths and come to a conclusion. In an interview with the Nerdist, the writer duo were asked about the appearance of the Guardians in Avengers 3. Here is what Markus said during the interview:
"Let me put it this way. You know who owns that gauntlet, right. And you know who's in another movie and his kids are in that movie... you do the math."
Sure, the fans know about Thanos, the creator and wearer of the Infinity Gauntlet, and that he aspires to rule the galaxy by collecting all the Infinity Gems. Once he collects all the stones from around the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he will fix them on his gauntlet and thereby acquire enormous powers.
In the post-credit scene of Avengers Age Of Ultron, the Mad Titan opened a vault and wore his gauntlet and declared he will go find the gems himself. The alien warlord Thanos will kick-start the search for the Infinity Stones — ancient gems with amazing powers to control the universe, in the third sequel to Marvel's Avenger series.
After multiple brief appearances in many Marvel movies, the super powerful Titanian Eternal will swing into action and probably have plenty of scenes in the upcoming movie about his goal of "decorating" his gauntlet with the magical stones.
"You know, he's never been the villain in any of the movies. He's never been the main character in that way, so giving lots of screen time to Thanos is paramount and pretty fun," McFeely told IGN.
Thanos' previous appearances only build up to his importance in Avengers 3 as he is searching for the six gems — Time Gem, Space Gem, Soul Gem, Reality Gem, Power Gem and Mind Gem — each of which controls one component of the universe.
What will happen if he collects all the gems, is yet unknown but for sure he will acquire unimaginable powers over the galaxy.
