Marvel Studios have a plan in place to resurrect Mad Titan Thanos by introducing his real son Thane in the MCU
Marvel fans have never had such a dry spell as the year 2020. 2019, saw the culmination of MCU’s Infinity Saga the New Year was supposed to bring more heroes and many new twists. But alas! Coronavirus pandemic derailed everything not only in Hollywood but in our lives as well.
Now some sense of normal has come back and a version of the planet is being restored in the way we knew it. Including the movie processes, finally, the productions are coming back to track and leaks with them!
Thanos and Family’s MCU debute
Fans and experts both have long guessed about Thanos’ presence in the MCU will be felt for long. In his own word’s, ‘I am inevitable.’ Creator Jim Starlin recently affirmed that Thanos might pop-up back into the MCU as Marvel isn’t done with him yet. He told Comicbook portal, “Comic book characters tend to have an extended lifespan beyond the actors who work on them. I’m half expecting to see much more Thanos down the line.”
The fact that the Mad Titan was half Eternal got fans excited to see him in the next iteration. As reported, actor Angelina Jolie might play Thanos’ mother in the upcoming movie.
If rumours are anything to go by Thanos and his extended family might appear in the Eternals. Concept art by artist Ryan Lang showed us what the young Eternal would have looked like in a family portrait of the intergalactic tyrant.
Another prominent Titan family member to be introduced in the MCU is Thanos’ brother Starfox. Known as Eros of Titan, Starfox has been a member of Avengers. He has the powers to control other people’s feelings.
Starfox was originally set to appear in the Eternals in Phase 4 but the storyline was dropped and now he can appear in either Secret Invasion Series or Captain Marvel 2.
Thane, the Son of Thanos
Recently, WGTC reported based on their sources that Marvel Studios has plans to introduce Thanos’ son Thane into the MCU. The report states,
Thane might play a prominent part in the future of the series by resurrecting his father.We Got This Covered
Conversely, to the Children of Thanos, Gamora or Nebula who he picked up from different planets, Thane is his biological son. He was a secret child with an Inhuman tribe healer. In the comic after decimation, last surviving members of Thanos’ Black Order come to Earth to find him.
The Marvel Comic Version of Thane is very powerful combination of Thanos’ Eternals genes along with his mother’s Inhuman genes. He is immortal and has superhuman strength.
From MCU movie point of view the post decimation plotline fits the bill. Coupled with The Eternals showing up soon and secrecy around it all the more point towards the plausibility of the leak.
However, it would be very interesting to see how Marvel will play out the character.
