For the longest time, the MCU suffered from a severe lack of compelling villains. Then the Mad Titan Thanos appeared in Avengers: Infinity War
, and suddenly the franchise had an amazing complex villain that rivaled Darth Vader in terms of villainy and charisma. While Thanos died in Avengers: Endgame
, Jim Starlin
, who co-created the character for Marvel Comics
, recently hinted during a Phase Zero podcast that the Mad
Titan might show up for a quick cameo in the upcoming film Eternals
"I believe I heard some rumors that he's [Thanos] coming back in different things. I think I've heard...confirmed from Marvel Studios
is that he's going to be...at least a guest appearance inside the Eternals, so he's gonna be around. This is not anything I'm making up. This is something I've read somewhere."
It would make a lot of sense for Thanos to show up in Eternals, however briefly.
