‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Blu-ray Gives Us a Better Look at Thanos in the ‘Infinity War’ Teaser
Earlier this year Marvel revealed their full upcoming film lineup through 2019, including plans to team up with Sony for a Spider-Man reboot, allowing the web-slinger to crossover into the MCU. During that big Marvel presentation, the studio also showed a teaser for Avengers: Infinity War, featuring the big bad Thanos in possession of all the Infinity stones. That footage leaked online and gave fans a very blurry look at the teaser, but you’ll be able to see a legitimate, high-res version of it when Avengers: Age of Ultron hits Blu-ray.
CBM revealed a high-res image of Thanos from that teaser, which you can see above, or click the version below for an even larger version:
Josh Brolin will return to voice Thanos in the two-part Infinity War, with the first installment hitting theaters in 2018. Up to now, Thanos has proven a fairly incompetent villain in the MCU — for all the talk of his epic powers, he mostly sits around on his space throne, forcing smaller villains to do his bidding. They have inevitably all failed, leaving Thanos without all the Infinity stones necessary to complete his gauntlet and take over the universe.
But as Marvel teased during their big presentation, that’s all about to change. In the mid-credits scene for Avengers: Age of Ultron, we saw Thanos retrieve the gauntlet from a space-locker of sorts (side note: when do we get to see Thanos’ space-apartment? There’s no way he just lives on a giant chunk of rock) and declares “I’ll do it myself.” It’s about time Thanos got off his butt and got to work.
We still have a few films to go before Thanos collects all the stones, but as Marvel showed us in the Infinity War teaser, he will get them all.
Avengers: Age of Ultron hits DVD and Blu-ray on October 2.
