After 10 years and 17 movies, Thanos will finally get his chance to destroy the universe. Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige has hinted that the film will payoff all of the teasing fans in the first five minutes of Avengers: Infinity War. While speaking at the 2017 Comic-Con in Brazil last weekend Fiege gave some more insight on the Mad Titan.
“We’ve been teasing him for years and the trick is when you tease something for that long you have to deliver. So, within the first five minutes of Infinity War people will understand why Thanos is the biggest and baddest villain in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”
In the trailer, fans can get a glimpse of Thanos taking over a world and his goon squad The Black Order. Longtime Marvel villain Loki can be seen handing over the Tesseract to Thanos. In Avengers,Loki made a deal with Thanos to use his army to invade Earth. Now according to Fiege, Thanos will not need that much help.
“He’s got some company. He’s got some old faces that you’ll recognize. A certain brother of Thor might show up for a while with him and he has his own team called the Black Order which is a brand-new selection of villains. But really, Thanos doesn’t need much help. He can pretty much take care of it himself.”
Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters May 4, 2018.
