Real quick, we all remember the post-credits scene from 2012′s The Avengers right? The scene that initially told us and confirmed that Thanos, The Mad Titan, was indeed the big villain in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and a character that we’ve only gotten to actually see bits and pieces of over the past several years since, though his plan to assemble the Infinity Stones together has only come closer and closer into being fully realized.
Well, in that scene itself, Thanos is introduced after both he and the audience are told that challenging the Avengers would be like courting Death itself, or in Marvel comics terms, herself. Not only did the scene confirm that Thanos was in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it also may have confirmed that the comics’ female version of Death, who the Mad Titan is fiercely in love with, was also in it as well.
Now, some new possible plot details from LRM hint that 2018′s Avengers: Infinity War won’t actually be an adaptation of the “Infinity War” storyline from the comic books, which featured Adam Warlock fighting Magus, but will instead focus on the “Infinity Gauntlet” storyline instead, which means that Warlock and Magus don’t seem to be included in Infinity War after all.
Instead, the film will find Thanos assembling all of the Infinity Stones and weilding the full power of the Infinity Gauntlet, in order to extinguish half the life in the Universe, and give it to the love of his life, Mistress Death, who is indeed a female and will apparently be in the film as well. Previous fan theories have noted that Cate Blanchett’s Hela in Thor: Ragnarok, could be the film substitute for Death in the MCU as well, though the report states that there has been no confirmation if she will or won’t be as of yet.
In addition, the report claims to confirm that Infinity War will feature all of the current living Avengers teaming up with the Guardians of the Galaxy, as well as Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury to take on the Mad Titan. Already, Josh Brolin is known to be doing some performance capture work as Thanos on set for Infinity War also, with production on the film set to officially begin on the first Monday of November in Atlanta, GA. Here’s to hoping we won’t have to wait until 2018 to know for sure if Death is going to be in the MCU as well.
Avengers: Infinity War is set to hit theatres on May 4th, 2018.
