Kevin Feige Calls Thanos “The Main Character” In ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Although the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been going since 2008’s smash-hit Iron Man, we have yet to see “the purple guy”, better known to comic book fans as Thanos, cause any destruction. However, in next year’s Avengers film, that is all going to change.

Collider recently talked to Marvel President Kevin Feige regarding Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, and he briefly talked about how big of a role Thanos plays in the movie. We’ve all known Thanos will be an integral part of the plot, but just how much time will the character have on screen?

“Thanos in Infinity War is – in a movie that has a lot of characters, you could almost go so far as to say he is the main character, and that’s a bit of a departure from what we’ve done before, but that was appropriate for a movie called Infinity War.”

Considering that Avengers: Infinity War is one of the largest casts ever put to screen, that’s a bit responsibility to hold for Josh Brolin’s Thanos.

Are you looking forward to finally seeing Thanos take on the Avengers? Why or why not? Leave us your comments below.

Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Tom Holland, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Benedict Cumberbatch, Benedict Wong, Scarlett Johansson, Brie Larson, Cobie Smulders, Elizabeth Olson, Jeremy Renner, Sebastian Stan, Peter Dinklage, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Hemsworth, Karen Gillian, Bradley Cooper, Samuel L. Jackson, Paul Rudd, Josh Brolin, Paul Bettany, and Mark Ruffalo.

Although no official synopsis has been released at this point, we can safely assume that Avengers: Infinity War will follow a story that includes Thanos, with the Infinity Gauntlet, taking on the Avengers. A more detailed plot summary will be released as the film’s release date nears.

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