For those fans not familiar with the character named Thanos, that short look during the credits of The Avengers probably wasn’t enough to get them excited. For long time Marvel fanboys & girls though it was a tease that sent many to the local comic book store to pick up back issues featuring the Terrible Titan.
Those that have already picked up The Avengers on Blu-ray or DVD can get the extras section for the Avengers Initiative: Marvel Second Screen Experience app. Within are a ton of behind the scenes videos and the concept art used to produce the sets and costumes for the film.
Thanos gets a little conceptual art love in the set, showing a somewhat better look at the character and perhaps a glimpse into what we’ll see in Guardians of the Galaxy in August 2014 and The Avengers 2.
Let us know what you think about the art below in the comments section. Do you like the armor style in the second picture better than the “one piece” normally pictured on Thanos?
Who do you think should play Thanos? I’m thinking Ron Perlman as I write this article. I mean who else do you slap a ton of makeup on and get acting magic from better than Ron?
