Not himself though. Wierd since he has a hard on for lady death in the comics.
@mapow27, as does Deadpool
@mapow27, they changed it because they wanted to be portrayed as a mad idealist instead of the horny for death sadist.
@mapow27, well he's the last of his species, so he's not at risk of overpopulation
@Ray213, I mean yeah, I honestly love what they did with him but I just really wanted to explore that thread a little bit.
@mapow27, I did too but I feel they wanted to make thanos more relatable instead of death obsessed villain
@Mattizzle9, i really want them to put deadpool in the next avengers vs thanos...since they had such a rivalry
@MMSieBreeze, that would be amazing!
@mapow27, They kinda wedged Gamora into that position, in a way. Rather than infatuation, it’s a fatherly love, instead. From what I’ve read, they didn’t go the Lady Death route because it would have been too much more to add into the movie, and they’d have to make Thanos something they didn’t want to turn him into, at the same time.
@Berntley, I didn't read the comics, but I've heard how it goes in that, and I like this way more. He's not just some mustache twirling villans, who's just evil, because they need a villans, he's genuinely believes he's doing the right thing, and you can sympathize with him, at least a little. My favorite MCU villan so far, and I thought I'd hate him.
@Duncan5769, I fully agree. They’ve made him into such an emotional character. He really stole the show in Infinity War
@Berntley, yeah, I thought the movie would be about all the heroes coming together, but it was really about Thanos
@Duncan5769, For sure. I can see why some people weren’t into the way it went down, but it definitely worked for me.
@Berntley, I’ve heard almost universal praise for how Thanos was handled. The only real criticism I’ve heard about IW is that it does so much that it can be hard to keep up sometimes
@TR8R, yeah, I definetly need to watch it 1 or 2 more time, but that might have even been by design, so that it is rewatchable. I also have to give them credit for doing a decent job explaining things from previous movies, but quickly so those who haven't seen it understand, and those who have seen it don't get bored.
@Duncan5769, Yeah, two viewings is definitely warranted, so the second time you can take in all the finer details. I think the best way to look at the movie, too, is that Thanos is the main character. Not the avengers. Then, you don’t get this feeling like everybody needs to be in touch and working together all throughout the movie.
@Duncan5769, I fully agree. I like what they did with Thanos. He isnt necessarily evil. He’s the best villain I’ve seen in a very long time. He’s idealistic and although his methods are dark they hold truth. Its not the ideal way to solve the problem. But it does solve it. He’s also non-discriminate in his choices all are equal. I’ve only heard about how he is in the comics and I definitely like this version better.
I’ve always thought that the greatest villains are the ones that don’t kill or commit evil acts for the sake of being evil. They are goal driven and know the value of when to eliminate or keep an enemy alive to further their goal.
@Berntley, Also listen for the audiences reaction. I’ve only watched it once. However during first viewing I noticed it. But I’m nearly always aware of my surroundings.
Pointed it out to my friend that went with me. He didn’t notice. So its something to keep in mind if you go again.
@Seohn, Oh yeah. I’m always paying attention to audience reactions. Partly because I’m not familiar with the actual comics, so I like to note if there’s certain moments I need to look more into later. The theater I go to, there’s always a pretty good mix of attendees, so there’s a lot of emotion circulating.
@Berntley, according o what ive learned of thanos(and deadpool for thay matter) is that he did all this because he was in love woth death(a female character in the marvel comics) and was trying to win her favor...so it was more an act of love for death than a humane act to correct overpopulation
@MMSieBreeze, Right. That’s my understanding, too, so that’s a pretty strong deviation, but basically, they replaced one love with another, because trying to work in such an intricate plotpoint that has thus far had no bearing on the other almost twenty films would have been daftly futile.
@Berntley, theu did a very good job with how theu portrayed him in the movie...i just kind of wish they had put a little more into the involvement of death...subtle hints and such...it would keep the over all character and lead to a possible(though highly doubtful) run in with deadpool...even as maybe a cameo... Or a mention of said run in
@MMSieBreeze, I have a feeling they just don’t even wanna open that door a crack.
@Berntley, i can understand why they don't want to...but it would make for one hell of a part 2
@MMSieBreeze, You’re not wrong
Thanos was right
Think he's compensating for something?
@ThePandaPool , being alive maybe?
So spoiler time???
@YodaGhostlightning , to be fair this isn’t really much of a spoiler. Who didn’t know from watching the trailers that thanos wanted to kill a ton of people. Nothing spoiled about the movie in the picture itself
@George Feeny, I guess you’re right. It doesn’t say if he succeeds or not
@YodaGhostlightning , agreed, as long as we can keep the actual spoilers out of the comment section on the picture we should be fine to keep others from having it ruined
Do you think he's compensating for something?
