When it comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe , Iron Man may rule the roost, Cap may have near-single-handedly taken down S.H.I.E.L.D., and Loki may have stolen the hearts of millions, but there is, when it comes right down to it, only one truly intergalactic bad-ass: Thanos.

The villain has lurked in the background of most of the Marvel movies we've so far seen, with his first real (non-post-credits) appearance only coming in this past summer's [Guardians of the Galaxy](movie:424073) . And yet, he's been a subtle driving force behind much of what we've seen - especially in The Avengers, and to a lesser extent the Thor movies.

"Ahem. Thor Odinson is lesser to no mortal movie."
"Ahem. Thor Odinson is lesser to no mortal movie."

But what should we expect to see from Thanos in the future? After all, we know from the imminent existence of [The Avengers: Infinity War](movie:738027) that he's on a collision course with The Avengers, but what form will that collision take?

Well, thankfully, Josh Brolin - the man playing Thanos himself - has let slip something pretty darned crucial about the movie. Speaking at a recent press roundtable, Brolin revealed that:

"Ultimately, it's Thanos against everyone. Why wouldn't you do that?
Because he might win?
Because he might win? a pretty good point, for one thing - I mean, why wouldn't anyone want to see Thanos fighting everything the MCU could throw at him?

It's also, though, a pretty clear - and awesome - indicator that Avengers: Infinity War is set to feature pretty much every hero you can imagine, all squaring off against Thanos.

So, good news for Howard the Duck, then?

What do you guys think, though?


Will we see EVERYONE face off against Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War?
