Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely preview Thanos arriving in ‘Avengers Infinity War’

The mighty villain is finally going to arrive in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the titan Thanos will take the main role in Avengers: Infinity War, a two-part film event. Now the two screenwriters talk about making that move after brief introductions in The Avengers, Guardians Of The Galaxy and another post-credits appearance in Age Of Ultron

Everyone knows he’s coming, and yet he hasn’t had terribly many scenes that have illuminated very much about him,” screenwriters Christopher Markus explained, adding, “You can count on a lot of scenes where we illuminate a lot about him very early.”

Markus and fellow screenwriter Stephen McFeely talked with Comic Book Movie about bringing all of the heroes together to battle Thanos.


“The challenge is hanging on to character as motivation when you blow the canvas up to the entire universe. And not to make it seem like all your people look like tiny little video game characters running around,” McFeely shared.

“It’s just trying to balance character moments in the middle of big, crazy Jim Starlin [‘Thanos’ creator] action,” added Markus.

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 is scheduled for release on May 4, 2018.

While details remain sketchy, expect a massive collaboration of all of the Marvel characters including those from the previous Avengers films, Guardians and newcomers like Doctor Strange, Black Panther and even Captain Marvel.
