AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR: Joe Russo Says The Movie Belongs To Thanos And Teases THAT Moon Scene

Avengers: Infinity War co-director Joe Russo talks here about Thanos' role in the movie, promising that he'll rival Darth Vader and teasing even more than the destruction of a moon from the SDCC trailer.

Marvel Studios has a spotty track record when it comes to villains and the hope is that Thanos will be another baddie who breaks the curse when Avengers: Infinity War is released. In a new interview, co-director Joe Russo has shared his thoughts on the Mad Titan's role in the movie and makes some pretty bold claims about what we should expect when he battles Earth's Mightiest Heroes later this year.

"Darth Vader was the pre-eminent villain of my childhood, and we're hoping to make a Darth Vader for a new generation," Russo says. "We're hoping he has that complexity to him, and that he strikes fear into the heart of the audience, but at the same time they go on a journey with him. Frankly, Avengers 3 is his movie." So, it sounds like Thanos will receive a significant amount of screentime!

As for the special effects being used to bring the character to life on the big screen, Russo adds: "It's very important to us that Thanos has a level of photorealism that makes that audience believe him." While Thanos will look real, he'll be doing some pretty spectacular things, including blowing up a moon (that scene was in the Comic-Con trailer but not the version released online. It turns out that barely scratches the surface. "That's one of many things Thanos does in this film. He's an incredible threat!"
