‘The Avengers’ Has Thanos as a Second Villain?

The Avengers may feature Thanos as the second villainThe Avengers is currently shooting in New Mexico, and it has been understood ever since Thor hit theaters earlier this month, that Tom Hiddleston's Loki will be the main villain in The Avengers. A new rumor is swirling that The Avengers will feature a second villain, Thanos.

Earlier this month, Marvel unveiled some photos from Odin's vault in Thor, and one of the items on display is the Infinity Gauntlet, which Thanos wears. Here's a description of the Thanos character below.

"Debuting in the Bronze Age of comic books, the character has featured in over three decades of Marvel continuity and a self-titled series. The character's name is a derivation of Thanatos, the personification of death and mortality in Greek mythology. One of his more prominent storylines to date-the Infinity Gauntlet series-portrayed him as a mad cosmic tyrant bent on slaying half of all sentiences existing then in Marvel's multiverse in order to appease the Marvel Universe's actual (and more powerful) embodied personification of Death in an attempt to win its love."

It isn't known how large a part Thanos, who is also known as the "Mad Titan," will have in The Avengers, or who will be playing him. Nothing has been confirmed by Marvel Studios regarding Thanos at this time.

Marvel's The Avengers was released May 4th, 2012.

      @bawnian-dexeus hmm... a year ahead of time is hardly point blank, but I get what your saying. Still, going with the joke is always better than going against it.

                "I also think Thanos may stay in the shadows until the end of the movie and make a cameo at the end that sets up the sequel."

                Wow, whoever said that was spot on with his assessment. Oh, it was me? Well, then, carry on...

                      @ejk1 I agree i believe in the Avenegers sequal Thanos will acquire the IF OR CC if he gets the Infinity Gauntlets he will be too powerful for the Avenegers and will hopefully result in cosmic beings present ( Galactus and Eternity and all the others) as i assume that Fantastic Four will be remade by then with a Silver surfer reference or sum i dont know

                              does this mean "THE INHUMANS" will be the next feature in the "AVENGERS" franchise?

                                  As I have been saying for months: Cosmic Cube + Infinity Gauntlet = Thanos. People need to remember that Loki is not a fighter by nature--he's a manipulative bastard, setting things up to his liking. He can easily direct Thanos, lovesick over Death, towards an object like the CC or IG and tell The Mad Titan that it will get her to fall in love with him, while at the same time plotting to take said object for himself to use at a later date. I also think Thanos may stay in the shadows until the end of the movie and make a cameo at the end that sets up the sequel.

                                    In other words, pretty much what @insertusernamehere just said.

                                      I really can't see them trying to put Thanos into this movie and expect it not to become seriously convoluted. What could work, though, is to have the end-credits teaser (assuming there is one, as there has been in all the other Marvel Universe films) hint at Thanos for a sequel.
