From the first Avengers movie that released in 2011, Marvel Cinematic Universe has been luring fans towards the Infinity War one movie at a time, and the recently-released trailer has hinted it is going to be an epic experience.
While the promo hinted at the chaos that Thanos is set to create, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige just dropped a massive tease about the opening of the movie and revealed that Thanos will be bad from the word go!
According to a Comicbook.com report, Feige appeared on a video call at the CCXP17 last weekend in Brazil and answered a few questions about Infinity War. Talking to the crowd, he assured fans they would know why Thanos is the "biggest and baddest" villain in the history of MCU.
"Josh Brolin is doing an amazing job of playing Thanos. You know, we've been teasing Thanos since the very first Avengers film. Remember the end of Avengers, the very end of the movie he turns around in the chair and you realize something bad is coming? We've been teasing him for years and the trick is when you tease something for that long you have to deliver. So, within the first five minutes of Infinity War people will understand why Thanos is the biggest and baddest villain in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe," he said.
It could be that the first five minutes pick up right from the post-credits scene from Thor: Ragnarok, featuring Thanos and Asgard's ships. The trailer did tease Loki handing over the Tesseract to an unidentified person while he stood on a carpet of dead bodies. Fans speculated that it could be the Asgardians that Thanos kills in order to obtain the Tesseract.
While speculations are rife, the opening five minutes are not the only spoiler Feige revealed. He also confirmed that Infinity War gets down to business and is serious from the moment it begins, and fans will soon understand the Avengers are in grave trouble.
He also confirmed that things only worsen when they find out that Thanos is not alone: He has some dangerous company.
"He's got some company. He's got some old faces that you'll recognise. A certain brother of Thor might show up for a while with him and he has his own team called the Black Order, which is a brand-new selection of villains. But really, Thanos doesn't need much help. He can pretty much take care of it himself," he said.
Avengers: Infinity War releases on May 4, 2018.
