The Mad Titan, who once yielded all six infinity stones in the universe and then disintegrated half of the universe’s population, will most probably re-appear in the upcoming movie, Marvel Studios: The Eternals. Ever since the news popped out that the son of A’lars would possibly return for the film, fans were confused deciding how the creators would fit his character in the movie—will they resurrect The Mad Titan?
Josh Brolin’s brilliant performance made core Marvel fans love the character of Thanos even though he was the most hated villain. Some sources affirmed that the filmmakers would like to bring Thanos back in the phase four, but in the meantime resurrecting Thanos in the MCU would make Tony Stark / Iron Man’s and even Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow’s sacrifice good for nothing.
Thanos, in fact, has some prominent connection with the upcoming movie, The Eternals. The Eternals are a group of an extraterrestrial immortal being, and they have been residing inside the Earth for almost 7000 hours, but when their evil counterparts, the Deviants starts to emerge after the tragic yet somewhat delightful events of Avengers: Endgame. They must come out of hiding and protect the Earth from the deviants.
But where does our notorious villain fit in here—well he is Eternal–Deviant hybrid and would possibly have important cameo or flashbacks in the film. Even Thanos’ co-creator Jim Starlin made the pretty obvious remark that Thanos is very likely to make an appearance in the movie, but the Thanos probably will be the younger version.
Marvel Studios: The Eternals were previously scheduled to hit theaters on November 6, 2020, but due to the impending health crisis brought by coronavirus has forced Disney and Marvel Studios to rescheduled release dates for their every upcoming movie. The Eternals will get a theatrical release on February 12, 2021.
The Eternals will serve as a mini-Avengers movie as it features an ensemble cast of brilliant actors like Richard Madden, Kit Harrington, Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjiani, Gemma Chan, Salma Hayek, Don Lee, and many more. Although the release got delayed, the filmmakers have wrapped up filming on February 4, and the film was director by Chloé Zhao—her third full-length feature film.
