The release date for Avengers: Endgame is just around the corner. In about two months, the world is going to witness cinematic history in the making. Thanos, who owned the entirety of the Earth’s mightiest heroes in Avengers: Infinity War, is coming back to the big screens. But with so many fans scouring through the internet looking for clues, it would be too hard for the Marvel Studios o keep everything a secret. Marvel has finally slipped up. Their latest toy line leak has revealed a fascinating detail about the Mad Titan.
Apart from sporting a new look; Thanos is also going to bring along with him the Universe’s greatest weapon, something that took him nearly a decade to build. That’s right folks! Thanos is bringing back the Infinity Gauntlet and turns out, it is still as deadly as before. Presenting – Avengers Endgame: New Leak reveals Thanos will again use the Gauntlet against the Avengers!!
The character concept designs for the various Marvel characters that will appear in the next Avengers flick titled Avengers: Endgame have been leaked online. Amongst the rest of the heroes and villains, Thanos’ design is something that is extremely intriguing.
The guy is back with a new look coupled with his old Infinity War gear. And his design also includes the Infinity Gauntlet on his left hand. Thanos is not just carrying the Infinity Gauntlet but also a long, double-bladed sword this time. We will probably see both of these weapons in Avengers: Endgame.
Here is the picture we are talking about:
In Infinity War, Thanos had to literally fight Gods and monsters to complete his quest of getting his hands on the Infinity Gauntlet. His aim was to wipe out half of all life in the universe so that the limited resources the universe has at its disposal are not burned up by the rising amount of sentient life in the galaxy.
When Thanos finally managed to combine the Infinity Stone of Time, Power, Reality, Mind, Soul and Space, he became a God who could do anything he wishes. Thanos snapped his fingers and his wish of bringing back ‘balance’ to the universe were fulfilled. But the act took a toll on the Gauntlet. It suffered catastrophic and irreparable damages. And it looked like the Infinity Gauntlet was done for good. But the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a strange little place. The Infinity Gauntlet has again resurfaced.
It would be hard to tell whether the Infinity Gauntlet is still functional. We even do not know that if it is the same Infinity Gauntlet that we saw in Avengers: Infinity War. Given the fact that Thanos already knows whom to go to so as to make another Infinity Gauntlet, it could be an entirely new one.
Thanos could have also forced Eitri, the Dwarf King of Nidavellir, to make another spare Infinity Gauntlet just in case. The possibilities are endless. We have to wait until the movie to figure out what is actually going on. Let us hope the Avengers can tackle this new threat.
Thanos first appeared in The Avengers of 2012. The official film synopsis for the movie reads:
When Thor’s evil brother, Loki (Tom Hiddleston), gains access to the unlimited power of the energy cube called the Tesseract, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), director of S.H.I.E.L.D., initiates a superhero recruitment effort to defeat the unprecedented threat to Earth. Joining Fury’s “dream team” are Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner).
The last Avengers movie to be released under the MCU banner was Avengers: Infinity War. The official film synopsis for the movie reads:
Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet — the evil Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artefacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment.
