Avengers: Infinity War finally brings Thanos The Mad Titan center stage, requiring Marvel Studios and actor Josh Brolin to put more effort than ever into creating the villain's look, voice and presence onscreen. However, Marvel fans are fairly pointing out that there's been something of a consistency issue, when it comes to Thanos' evolution as a live-action character:
The villain has clearly undergone a drastic color tone alteration since first appearing in The Avengers post-credits scene. The other big change is that, for some reason, Thanos ditches his helmet when he finally decides to step on the battlefield in Infinity War.
Both issues have already inspired a whole slew of Internet memes and jokes, but at the very least, Brolin looks and sounds like he will be a compelling antagonist - one who is more layered and interesting than most MCU villains.
Avengers: Infinity War opens in theaters on May 4, 2018. Thor: Ragnarok is now playing in theaters. Other upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movies include; Black Panther on February 16, 2018, Ant-Man and the Wasp on July 6, 2018, Captain Marvel on March 8, 2019, the fourth Avengers movie on May 3, 2019, the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming on July 5, 2019, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in 2020.
