Ever since Thanos turned to face the camera back in 2012’s Avengers, audiences have been wondering what havoc the character would bring to our heroes down the line. By the time we finally see his character as the main villain in next year’s Avengers: Infinity War, it will have been almost six years and 12 movies since he was introduced.

As such, he will need to prove to the audience right away why the Avengers actually need to fear him. This is something that hasn’t been lost on Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, and while speaking at Comic-Con Experience in Brazil, he said:

“You know, we’ve been teasing Thanos since the very first Avengers film. Remember the end of Avengers, the very end of the movie he turns around in the chair and you realize something bad is coming. 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.”

So what does this mean? Well, I expect we may see Thanos take on something at the very beginning of the film, and utterly obliterate it. I can’t help but think of the poor Asgardians, who had just escaped the destruction of their homeland. When we last saw them, Thanos’ ship had just descended upon them.

As such, I fear the Asgards will face a lot more casualties at the beginning, and will be the ones to show the audience why Thanos needs to be feared. What do you think of Feige’s comments? How do you think the character will show off his strength? Let us know down below!

Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on May 4, 2018.

    Perhaps it will begin with the destruction of Xandar?

      You beat me to it! I think this is how they’re gonna introduce him

    In the unofficial trailer. The GOTG find Thor floating in space among wreckage so I guess it’s the Asgardians who buy it.

    I wonder if Captain America with use American Projection to trick Thanos into thinking he is in Wakanda when he is actually on the Kree Homeworld. Or maybe he can just cut Thanos in half with his shield before the real fighting begins. You know, to be different and take risks.

      he trims his beards and his hair looks like a wig from Dark Empire.

      Whiney bitch

        That’s not what your mom says.

        You misspelled “whiny” you ignorant slut.

      I like it!! But the Russo Bros better ground the sequence in realism by having Cap Ap sport one of those fish bowl helmets so he can survive in space. The remaining 2 hrs of run time should be an extended shot of Black Widow eating shawarma in silence a la the Rooney Mara pie-eating scene in A Ghost Story. That shit’s art man…

    a direct continuation from the ending of Thor Ragnarok. Thor and Hulk fight Thanos which leads Loki into handing the Cosmic Cube to him from the trailer. The trailer didn’t show the comicon portion where the guardians find Thor in space where rocket says “Use the Whipers.” And then leads to Gamora doing exposition to explain how evil her dad is.
    Showing him take on the Hulk probably would prove to the world how dangerous he is than blowing something up.
