In the final half of Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War, fans saw Thanos unleash like never before in his quest to acquire the remaining Infinity Stones and reshape the universe. Well, courtesy of some new concept art, fans have a better idea of the kind of power the Mad Titan could have wielded in the Battle of Titan.
Concept artist Anthony Francisco revealed a look at a scrapped fight between the Thanos and Doctor Strange on Facebook. The concept art shows Thanos "manipulating gas from a nearby star or pulling lava from the center of a planet."
With the Space, Power, Reality and Soul Stones already in hand, it makes sense that Thanos would be incredibly powerful. However, the art doesn't depict the Sorcerer Supreme as a push over, as he is using his magic to divert the lava away.
Of course, while the Russo brothers didn't go with this brawl in the final version of the film, Thanos did pull an orbiting moon down onto Strange, Iron Man, Spider-Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy in his fight against them. But with another round to come in the ever-mysterious Avengers 4, Thanos might just use using lava like this against the Avengers.
The untitled sequel to Avengers: Infinity War will release on May 3, 2019. Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, the movie stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Josh Brolin, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland and Anthony Mackie.
