New Avengers: Infinity War fan art shows an intimidating Thanos literally holding some of the fallen heroes of the MCU in his hand. It's been more than a month since the release of the massive Marvel film and people are still relentlessly discussing the film and its ramifications for the MCU moving forward. At this point, most anything can happen in Avengers 4, but it will most likely involve the remaining MCU Phase 1 heroes finding a way to rectify the predicament that Thanos' snap put them in.
Popular theories involve the possibility of time-travel and the exploration of the Quantum Realm in Avengers 4. Whether or not Earth's Mightiest Heroes eventually succeed in restoring reality to the way it should be, most of their allies no longer exist for the time being - something that the latest fan-made poster featuring the Mad Titan himself calls direct attention to.
A brand new Infinity War fan-poster from Reddit user calgarr00 puts a different spin on Thanos and his journey in acquiring the six Infinity Stones at the expense of the MCU heroes. The Mad Titan is seen looming over six key characters of the film, each representing one Stone. Loki represents the Tesseract/Space Stone, Gamora the Soul Stone, Vision the Scepter/Mind Stone and Doctor Strange the Eye of Agamotto/Time Stone. Meanwhile, Star-Lord depicts the Orb/Power Stone from Xandar, which makes sense given its connection to the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Interestingly enough, however, Spider-Man is the physical embodiment of the Aether/Reality Stone here. Check out the one-sheet below:
The creator didn't explain the reason behind Peter representing the Reality Stone. Obviously, Thanos took it from the Collector in Knowhere, but the character is such an odd choice to include in the list of heroes in the artwork. Also, it's still unclear what exactly happened to him considering that Infinity War didn't really show the real exchange between him and the Mad Titan. but perhaps it's because Peter represents all the civilians on Earth and other planets who didn't have a clue about what was going on. If anything, the Queens-native didn't really have any business being on Titan with more experienced heroes such as Tony Stark/Iron Man and Stephen Strange/Doctor Strange. He's the physical embodiment of the reality drastically changing in just one single snap.
The post was also shared by Josh Brolin on his official Instagram page which speaks volumes about the quality of the artwork. The actor used it to promote the massive film, telling people to go see Thanos again as he wreaks havoc in the MCU. As people know, the actor is doing double comic book movie duty this month by playing Thanos in Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War and Cable in Fox's Deadpool 2.
