Thanks to the Avengers decapitating the current timeline Thanos inside the opening moments of Avengers: Endgame, nearly all of the team-up featured a “newer” model of the character. The model of Thanos we finally received wasn’t technically new, quite he was a model of the Mad Titan from the previous — 2014, to be precise. This allowed the creatives to rejuvenate the character and tweak his traits a little extra, turning him into a brash, no-holds-bar, intergalactic bully. At one level, it seems the staff behind the movie wished to see what the character would appear to be if he was half royalty.

In the e book, loads of variations of Thanos had been on full show, together with a picture or two of the character sporting what seems to be a cape of types and a crown. To see what we’re speaking about, head across the 7:52 mark within the video above. Endgame director Anthony Russo mentioned earlier this 12 months the staff known as the brand new model of the baddie “Warrior Thanos” for his angrier angle.
“We refer to him as Warrior Thanos, the version of the character before he put down his armor and became enlightened and wanted to search for the stones,” Anthony Russo instructed Empire in a latest interview. “He’s angrier; it might be his flaw in the film, that he’s a little bit more precocious and self-confident, not quite as enlightened.”
