In Marvel Studios’ latest movie, a new threat will force Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to unite with the Guardians of the Galaxy and other costumed crimefighters, as the Mad Titan known as Thanos attempts to acquire all of the Infinity Stones.
Hyping up this formidable threat, co-director Joe Russo spoke with Empire about how Thanos will make an impact in Avengers: Infinity War, likening Josh Brolin’s character to one of the most important villains in pop culture.
“Darth Vader was the pre-eminent villain of my childhood, and we’re hoping to make a Darth Vader for a new generation,” said Russo. “We’re hoping he has that complexity to him, and that he strikes fear into the heart of the audience, but at the same time they go on a journey with him. Frankly, Avengers 3 is his movie.”
While Thanos was shown in the post-credits scenes of the previous two Avengers movies and had a small role in the first Guardians Of The Galaxy film, fans got their best look at the villain in action with the long-awaited trailer for Avengers: Infinity War.
His appearance was significantly altered for Infinity War, ditching the comics-accurate crown and armor for the sleek, sleeveless look of a space bro. Russo teased how the character’s CG is being handled for the film.
“It’s very important to us that Thanos has a level of photorealism that makes that audience believe him,” Russo added.
