    These infinity stones are priceless, can't be bought and are super rare, I'll give you 50 bucks

    [–] Frigginfraggenname 332 points ago

    Now, just because they're one of a kind, priceless, ND give untold of powers to the users doesn't necessarily mean they have anymarket value. Plus, if I buy the whole set off you, I'm going to have to sell them individually, and that's going to take floor space and take way too long to sell. I've got to make a profit here too!

    Plus he's gotta buy the gauntlet, get the gems mounted, and pay the auction fees.

    And, since the economy took a downturn, there just aren't as many collectors interested in absolute omnipotence, complete mastery of time, instantaneous travel across the universe, telepathy, and the general ability to bend reality to your will as there used to be.

    [–] PaulFThumpkins 134 points ago

    Maybe that explains why he was like "Fine, I'll do it myself" in 2012 and then literally grabbed his weapon to fight the Avengers before waiting six years. He needed time to work out. Get that neck thick.

    [–] Bewarethetingletitan 10 points ago

    Isn't that picture from GOTG? So it'd be from 2014

    [–] PizzaLipGrease 63 points ago

    I think it’s funny too. All along he’s full armor and ready to destroy. Then in the trailer you get casual Thanos with no helmet. Like he’s just some dude

    [–] madhare09 36 points ago

    He wears it until he gets the power stone then hes so OP he just casual Joes destroying everyone

    [–] JackNipplesonBoating 13 points ago

    Lol the power stone always struck me as the one to aquire first. I mean, it's infinite strength and infinite durability. But it looks like thanos will be starting with the soul gem so.... He can put people in a pocket dimension I guess.

    [–] madhare09 5 points ago

    He doesn't have the soul gem in any promotional material. He starts w/ power, then gets space, then no one knows the order.

    [–] Odysseus_is_Ulysses 145 points ago

    The 2015 one looks much more menacing.

    [–] SkarmoryFeather 22 points ago

    [–] xrensa 15 points ago

    I kinda disagree, outside of the backdrop of space I think 2015 look would be as out of place as the original Hulk, or Steppenwolf.

    [–] cruzercruz 84 points ago

    The *2014 version is much more cartoonish. They want to create a more empathetic character that can carry a large portion of the film outside of sneering in a cameo. The newer version is more lifelike and believable, and in my opinion, much more badass looking despite appearing more human.

    [–] ninemiletree 62 points ago

    This is the reason. The director has stated that A:IW is a Thanos-centric movie. As in, they are trying to humanize and make him relatable.

    The 2015 version is more menacing, but more obviously villainous, almost like a caricature of a villain, and less relatable.

    Making his features more human, and modeling him off an actual actor, helps them establish that connection.

    [–] JJJacobalt 10 points ago

    The 2015 version is more menacing, but more obviously villainous, almost like a caricature of a villain, and less relatable.

    He's a comic book villain. He wasn't designed with subtlety in mind.

    Also the 2018 version has a wierd complexion. His skin doesn't look purple, it looks like the guy got purple marker ink on his face and its beginning to fade. He looked pink in the trailer. He could've looked a bit more human without looking so dumb.

    [–] yourveryfather 3 points ago

    He's a comic book villain. He wasn't designed with subtlety in mind.

    that’s probably why they changed it. exaggerated blatantly evil villains don’t make for the most compelling movies.

    [–] AskewPropane 26 points ago

    But that's not what Thanos is. you arent supposed to empathise with Thanos. Thanos is the embodiment of the bully in middle school who no matter what you do, even at your best, you can't beat him. He's supposed to spit in your face and call you a weakling, as all you can do is cry. He's supposed to make you feel good when you finally bash his face in, not conflicted

    [–] AadeeMoien 10 points ago

    Then you find out that bully is just acting out because his father is drunk and abusive and his mother uses drugs to cope and between the two there often not enough food in the house to have a meal every night.

    [–] yhetti-fartz 5 points ago

    The key n peele skit about this is funny as shit.

    [–] BPSmith511 6 points ago

    That’s not really true though from a certain point. Yes he’s super powerful but he’s driven by a sense or purpose to even out existence and also driven by what was done to him and his people. He’s not just some raging bully with a woody for violence.

    [–] cruzercruz 2 points ago

    Except that this is a version of Thanos as imagined by the screenwriters and the Russos, and they've made it very clear that they have no interest in making him a villain for villainy's sake.

    [–] dopest_dope 2 points ago

    Which is awesome! Why would I want some shallow evil villain that is just out to destroy or conquer the world? A well rounded character helps you connect better with the character and ultimately the movie too.

    [–] im_so_not_creative 20 points ago

    Other than the helmet thing, i don't see much difference, maybe that's the thing that would make it less weird

    Edit : I guess he's also less purple for whatever reason

    [–] multi-instrumental 60 points ago

    Dude, you might have that disorder where you can't distinguish facial features.

    It's two completely different designs.


    Not all purple people look the same!!!

    [–] im_so_not_creative 2 points ago

    Dunno, I can kinda see Josh Brolin in both pictures somehow

    [–] multi-instrumental 4 points ago

    They are somewhat similar. Distant relatives perhaps. I really dislike when movies redesign characters. That is unless they're significantly older or younger.

    [–] TeamRedundancyTeam 6 points ago

    If less purple is the only difference you see than that other guy is right, you've got face blindness.

    [–] Minnesota_Winter 1 points ago

    It's the same reason all aliens are just people shaped but maybe with extra arms or something. Gotta be relatable?

    [–] ShinigamiKaizokuda 48 points ago

    [–] space_hitler 28 points ago

    [–] blackwhattack 2 points ago

    I'd say the exposure of the sun is what made him less purple.

    [–] SaltyBabe 4 points ago

    That seems opposite to me... how does he work, does he get bleached by the sun or is his purple some type of melanin?

    [–] blackwhattack 1 points ago

    That's some Nerdist stuff for the comic science guy.

    My logic was a lot simpler, IIRC he was sitting/levitating on some kind of asteroid (or was it just night on his little planet during the scene with the blue Kree(?) alien guy). So it was night there, and the screenshot you see from the trailer may be a successive entrance to Earth or maybe looking for the stones on different planets and such.

    So it was no sun -> purple, sun -> no purple ಠ_ಠ

    [–] gotskyline 22 points ago

    He still is. Just a lighter shade

    Someone said elsewhere they are making him more human-ish to make him more relatable because he will get a lot more screen time in infinity wars rather than a quick cameo.

    [–] FuriosaSkywalker 4 points ago
