A new Avengers: Infinity War promo has a crystal clear message: Thanos is mightier than Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
In a clever Japanese newspaper promo, the Mad Titan -- wielding the Infinity Gauntlet, of course -- tears through the page, effortlessly crushing the iconic Avengers logo. This is yet another teaser for the upcoming blockbuster that paints a bleak picture for the heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Recently, Thanos was teased as being the most intimidating and possibly the most developed villain yet.
Trailers have revealed the Mad Titan dropping Iron Man with an absolutely brutal punch, as well as clashing with Captain America. There is a lot of mystery surrounding this highly-anticipated movie and what it means for the future of the MCU. After all, Thanos finally confronting Earth's Mightiest Heroes has been teased since 2012's The Avengers. Directors Anthony and Joe Russo have even released a message that asks fans not to spoil the comic book movie's plot. Clearly, Thanos is about to make a significant impact on the MCU and its heroes.
In Jim Starlin, George Perez and Ron Lim's Infinity Gauntlet #4, several of Marvel's heroes are violently obliterated by Thanos (and Terraxia) before the Silver Surfer and powerful cosmic entities enter the picture. Only time will tell how much the Russo brothers have pulled from the comics for Avengers: Infinity War.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Paul Bettany, Anthony Mackie, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Tom Hiddleston and Josh Brolin, among others.
