Thanos' Reveal In THE AVENGERS Most Paused Movie Moment Of 2012

What Culture have posted their top 10 most paused moments of 2012 - even though not all of the films have actually hit home release yet. Anyway, their top 3 are from movies we have covered here on CBM. See what the other two are after the jump..

Unsurprisingly, a lot of the top 10 consists of nudity and or sex scenes - Megan Fox's boob grope in This Is 40 for example. But a few others are CBM related, and Thanos' appearance in the mid-credits scene of Marvel's The Avengers takes the no. 1 spot..

What they say..

"The previous sequences left us thrilled and confused in varying measures, but no film elicited as many “WTF?” responses as the end of The Avengers (or, sorry, Marvel’s Avengers Assemble), which in its mid-credits sequence made it clear where the evil chain of command led, to this helmet-clad figure who bemused just as many people as he excited.

The nerds were at once screaming, “It’s Thanos!”, while more casual viewers – likely the majority of the audience – were promptly whipping out their smartphones to try and figure out who it was. Indeed, it’s the briefest of glimpses and a pretty ambiguous scene on the whole, so it’s no surprise that this had so many of us pausing our Blu-Rays when it finally hit stores."

The 2 and 3 spots were taken by Prometheus and Cabin In The Woods. The latter being that brief shot of the whiteboard which reveals the various monster names..

..and from Ridley Scott's sci-fi flick, we have that final shot of "The Deacon" - the creature that may eventually evolve into the Xenomorph Queen from the Alien movies..
