Production on Avengers: Infinity War is all set to begin right at the start of next year. So it's little wonder that the team over at Marvel Studios are currently holding meetings regarding the blockbuster so that they can figure out any last minute kinks that might scupper its shoot. While this is serious business, Marvel's co-president couldn't help but share with the world that he was in a rather splendid meeting for Infinity War, while also uploading a picture that will immediately get everyone else pumped, too.
Louis D'Esposito, who sits alongside Kevin Feige as one of the most important individuals in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, was the man responsible for boasting about his Avengers: Infinity War meeting, while at the same time sharing a picture of the villain on his Twitter page that's expected to make the film so monumental.
Just look at the gargantuan purple bastard. No wonder Avengers: Infinity War needed to be split into two films. Josh Brolin is the man that has been tasked with portraying Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and while he missed the villain's teeny tiny debut in The Avengers (where he was voiced by Damion Poitier) the Academy Award-nominated actor has since popped up with two brief cameo performances as him in Guardians Of The Galaxy and _Avengers: Age Of Ulton. _
It was at the end of Avengers: Of Ultron where Josh Brolin made his most ominous threat yet. After witnessing the failure of his pawns to do his bidding for him, Thanos finally put on a gauntlet and then vowed to retrieve the Infinity Stones himself. You can see Thanos making this threat in all of its glory by clicking below.
We can also only hope that as Thanos, Josh Brolin helps to solve the villain problem that's haunted the Marvel Cinematic Universe in recent years, as they've only managed to create one genuinely memorable foe for their heroes over the course of their first 14 films. No, I'm not talking about the whiny Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), I am of course referring to Tom Hiddleston's Loki.
Thankfully, Josh Brolin possesses all the requisite attributes to make Thanos a dominant and imposing screen presence. We'll finally get to see the sort of damage he can cause as the villain when Avengers: Infinity War is released on May 4, 2018, while its still to be titled follow-up will arrive just a year later on May 3, 2019.
