The very first look at Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War during D23 Expo last summer came with a surprise. The Mad Titan (Josh Brolin) wasn’t wearing armor. Truth be told, you don’t need armor when you have Infinity Stones, but Thanos may have some after all.
A new photo of an Iron Man vs. Thanos “Battle Set” shows the latter in full armor. It’s also different armor than we saw him wear in in Guardians of the Galaxy. It has a more even mix of blue and gold to match the comics.
As always, I’ll throw out the caveat that what shows up on a superhero movie toy doesn’t always make it on the big screen. Thanos may still pass on the armor.
Still, it’s not hard to imagine Thanos going full armor just play up his omnipotence once he has all the Infinity Stones in his gauntlet. We could see this new look very briefly in Infinity War and then throughout Avengers 4.
Avengers: Infinity War is in theaters May 4.
