If you ever wondered what “The Avengers'” Thanos would look like if he were real, look no further than Facebook, where an extreme cosplaying family has created one of the most jaw-dropping Thanos costumes to date.
Prizmatec Cosplay, a family of cosplayers from Pordenone, Italy, created a giant Thanos costume as part of the promotion for Prizmagik Games & Cosplay Festival, which kicks off on May 28. The costume looks to be part sculpture, part mechanical suit, since there is clearly someone inside operating the arms, legs and head. The video shows the cosplay in action, as Thanos takes a stroll down a sidewalk.
Written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier”), “Avengers: Infinity War” is expected to be the culmination of the subplots involving Josh Brolin’s Thanos and the Infinity Stones that have been threaded through many of the Marvel films for years. Directed Joe and Anthony Russo (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Captain America: Civil War”), the film arrives May 4, 2018, followed by an as-yet-untitled sequel on May 3, 2019. The sprawling ensemble cast includes Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Chris Pratt, Jeremy Renner, Benedict Cumberbatch and Brie Larson, among others.
