AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Writers Say Avengers are Supporting Characters to Thanos
I am excited like crazy for Avengers: Infinity War and am sad I probably won’t see it opening night because I’ll be moving. I am also enjoying reading theories about who is going to die (here’s my list), where the Soul Stone is, etc. With it just over a month away from theaters, people are interviewing anyone and everyone who worked on the project that they can find. Io9 recently interviewed the writers, Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus, who explained that not only would Thanos be the villain, but he’d be the main character of Infinity War. We already knew that he and Thor were going to have the most screen time in the film, but when I heard that, I thought Thor would be the main character in this film. McFeely explains:
It’s great that Marvel is trying hard to give us great villains. Erik Killmonger was an amazing villain and one of the best that the MCU has seen. Hopefully, Thanos will be the best after Infinity War. In addition to talking about focusing on Thanos, McFeely and Markus mention that they worked on raising the stakes in this film:
Will Thanos be the best villain in the MCU? What are these stakes that everyone is talking about? Avengers: Infinity War opens in theaters April 27, 2018.
