Thanos' MCU Origin And Backstory Are Different Than The Comics

Thanos' MCU Origin And Backstory Are Different Than The Comics

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, however, writers aren't so lucky. One reason for that might be that he's approaching them with the analytical mind of a spy.

The release of the second trailer for Avengers: Infinity War has continued to be delayed and has managed to double fans' expectations for it. It offers a unique chance to change and expand the MCU.

How? Let's walk through it. While they all fall under the umbrella of Marvel comics, many of our favorite heroes were owned by different studios, including Fox and Sony. The pic comes from the set of the upcoming Marvel film Captain Marvel. Given his prominence in two Avengers films, it will definitely be disappointing if Thanos ends up feeling more like a Ronan the Accuser or a Malekith.

Additionally, folding Fox's tortured X-Men continuity into the MCU would be too messy to be worth the effort. It expands though to include Daredevil, Drax, and Ant-Man and features Grant Ward's portrait in the stars. As you can see though, the focus is still clearly on Hawkeye.

The article takes a weird turn as the interviewer oddly tries to get Josh Brolin to state that President Trump is Thanos (really? no wonder the Oscars were the lowest rated show ever), but Brolin doesn't exactly bite and offers that not only are Gamora and Nebula tools to Thanos, but that Thanos is the smartest character in the movie. When we first meet him, he's already cultivating the Avengers Initiative, but we never really hear him say how that started other than "there was an idea".

Infinity War will also reportedly deal with Thanos's origins and past. If the comics are any guide, Thanos will achieve godlike power by assembling all six Infinity Stones and then go on a universal murder spree to impress his yet-to-be-introduced girlfriend, Death itself. "Which one of us bites it and when?"

There are a lot of benefits to this approach.

In that light, Thanos' invasion plans are indeed to safeguard and "balance" the universe.

Obviously, it would take some big dominoes falling just right for this to work. Infinity War is the biggest event on the Marvel calendar right now, but the introduction of Carol Danvers into the MCU is arguably more important, particularly since Infinity War is already a guaranteed blockbuster regardless of how fans will ultimately respond to it.
