Motion-capture is a pretty big business these days, what with all these science fiction franchises featuring tons of computer animated creatures and characters. Mo-cap has been around for a while, but these days, with movies like Avatar and Warcraft and even the new Planet of the Apes series featuring whole worlds built around CGI characters, it seems everyone’s got a hand in the mo-cap pie. We knew that Avengers: Infinity War would feature at least one completely CGI character — Thanos — but with a new cast addition it looks like there will be at least one more.

For all we’ve seen and heard about Thanos as, like, the biggest villain, like, ever, we really don’t know much about him in regards to the MCU. We know he was behind Loki’s initial invasion of Earth, but the Avengers don’t. We know he wants the Infinity Gauntlet to rule the Universe, but they don’t. We know the little shiny MacGuffins our heroes have been picking up here and there on their adventures are Infinity Stones, but they don’t. Which creates an interesting situation when it comes to how all of this is going to be revealed.

We know that Josh Brolin is playing the extremely big bad Thanos for Avengers: Infinity War, and we’ve seen Thanos in some short scenes before, but it looks like he’ll be getting a lot more to do in the next superhero team-up movie than sitting in a very large chair. We even saw him walking around during some preliminary motion-capture tests! We also know that the heroes traditionally get some subtle costume upgrades movie to movie, so it’ll also be exciting to see if Thanos is getting a new-ish look too.
