Latino Review, who get things right more often than not when it comes to the world of movies and breaking secrets before anyone else, has been playing their game with Marvel Studios from the start. Of course, at the top of their minds is The Avengers, the big get-the-whole-band-together film coming in May of 2012.
They correctly predicted back in March of this year that Loki would be a villain in the team movie, a point proven in the Joss Whedon-directed after-credits scene of Thor. At that same time, they posited that Loki would be the impetus bringing in the rumored Skrulls to the mix. Now, they have another major villain they assure readers will be in the film. See who after the jump, with the obligatory “potential spoilers ahead.”
THANOS, the mad Titan and avatar of Death, says Latino Review, is the next villain to join the mix.
Now I’m not going to spoil how he is in the movie, but trust me when we tell you that he is in there.
If you think about it, it is also kind of obvious.
Now, there have been nods to Thanos already. Last year, Marvel brought along props from their Studios to Comic-Con International: San Diego, including the Infinity Gauntlet:
The power glove was seen in the Asgardian Vault in Thor alongside other cosmic and mystical artifacts.
But how would Thanos fit into a story that is presumably already crammed? If you have Loki, the Cosmic Cube, then you bring in Skrulls, and Thanos; all of a sudden you have a 100% Alien movie (remember Asgardians are aliens in this world). It would seem to lose a lot of the grounding of Iron Man, still their most popular franchise, and the presumably more-grounded Captain America coming this summer.
Still, it would be cool to see this hulking figure in the film; it just seems like it might be a bit too much to handle for one movie. What do you think? Would Thanos be a good fit in The Avengers live action film?
