Avengers: Infinity War – The Russo Brothers Say Thanos Is The ‘Genghis Khan’ of the Marvel Cinematic Universe

I remember sitting in the theater watching the fantastic opening of Avengers: Infinity War, and when Hulk busted in, I thought we were going to be in for a good fight. Of course, I was wrong, and the Purple Titan, Thanos, Threw Hulk around like a ragdoll. Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe had never Hulk dispatched in such a quick and calculated manner, the hand-to-hand combat skills of Thanos were put on full display here.

Co-Directors Joe and Anthony Russo recently participated in a Q&A session that took place after Collider put on a screening of Infinity War. You can check out what they had to say below about the how Thanos seemed to put Hulk away, with minimal effort.

“I would say that he’s just that powerful. You didn’t see him actively use the power stone in that fight. I think ultimately, the way we looked at that fight and the way talked about it with our stunt team when we were executing it was Hulk is obviously very powerful, but he’s a little mindless in his fighting style. It’s aggressive, it’s pummeling. Thanos is the Ghengis Kahn of the universe, he’s a very skilled fighter, equally as strong. So when you put those two up against each other, the more skilled fighter is going to win ultimately. Which is why Hulk has a moment where he overpowers Thanos, but ultimately Thanos is smart.”

Sure, Hulk started out just fine, but as the Russos said above, once Thanos was able to get his bearings, it really wasn’t a contest, to put it bluntly, he whooped Hulk’s ass. We all know Hulk smashes, and most of the time he smashes good, but Thanos is far more calculating in his attacks and that proved to be enough to defeat one of Earth’s mightiest heroes
