The Avengers: Infinity War trailer came out the other day and people lit up with acclaim and speculation and a lot of quizzical looks at why Thanos looks so weird.
The Marvel comics supervillain that has a fetish for infinity stones and Death has been set-up as the Avengers’ ultimate nemesis for more than a few movies, and thus more than a few years, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now that he has been officially revealed in a well-lit scene and not cast in shadows, the internet is wondering why actor Josh Brolin looks so much like a weird raisin in the role.
Thankfully, a character looking goofy means we get photoshops designed to amp up the goofiness and circle around and make us okay with the original goofiness.
Here Thanos is promising to bring the pain and pain accessories.
Here is Thanos determined to destroy the world with terrible movies and merchandise.
Somebody once told Thanos the world was going to roll him and that’s when he became determined to destroy it.
Professor Lawrence Pierce of the University of Chicago writes, “I think Thanos gets stupider every year.” That’s not a question, Professor!
You’ll never see Thanos coming.
Avengers: Infinity War is coming May 4 and is the first part of the two-part Marvel Cinematic Universe phase one finale.
