Hopefully you rushed out to the store on Tuesday to pick up the best comic book movie ever made, The Avengers. If you have an iPad and use the Second Screen app that most Disney BDs make use of these days, you’ll see something very cool during Thanos’ reveal.
The Second Screen app usually shows off storyboards, concept art, and other behind the scenes goodies. When Thanos makes his OMGWTFBBQ reveal during the mid-credits scene, the app reveals some awesome concept art for the Mad Titan. ComicBookMovie took screen caps from the app, which you can see above.
I’m really impressed by the first pic. They’ve managed to retain the basic comic book look of Thanos, while making it more realistic and definitely more scifi/cosmic for the movie. I know Marvel is obviously going to recast him for Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers 2 (he was played by a stunt man in Avengers), but I really hope they keep this design. It’s pretty much perfect. As for casting, Ron Perlman?
