We already know that the Phase 3 conclusion for Marvel will be the biggest one to date with Marvel splitting it into two parts. [The Avengers: Infinity War](tag:738027) is set to have The Avengers come face to face with Thanos in one epic final but is Thanos that strong for him to have two movies? If all rumors are correct the inclusion of a second part to the finale might have to do with another huge villain that will come into play. This rumor comes from Action Audition where they state that Magus will have a major role alongside Thanos himself in Infinity War!
Auditions are now getting underway for the Marvel Studios feature film ‘Avengers: Infinity War – Part I’ lead and supporting roles. The auditions for new lead and supporting roles will be taking place in Los Angeles, CA. The film is the first in a two-part sequel in which Thanos plays a major role, along with the Magus. Adam Warlock’s bad side, the Magus, separates from his body and assembles the Infinity Gauntlet. Magus creates doppelgangers of Earth’s heroes as part of his plan to recreate a universe of evil. “Avengers: Infinity War – Part I” will be shot entirely on the IMAX/ARRI 2D digital camera.
I know what you're thinking right now especially if you haven't read the Infinity War comics so let me tell you exactly who is Magus. Its safe to assume the majority of you already know about Adam Warlock or have heard of the character so we will start there! Here's a quick recap on who Adam Warlock is courtesy of Marvel Wikia!
Adam Warlock is an artificially created human who was born in a cocoon at a scientific complex called The Beehive. The goal of his creators, the Enclave, was to create and subsequently exploit the perfect human
In a nutshell think of Adam Warlock as an ultimate super being who might be the Avengers savior in Infinity War against Thanos. I know youre asking yourself what does Warlock have to do with Magus? It turns out Magus is Warlock well if he was pure evil and had no good bone inside him. He also is extremely powerful and in the comics he gains the Infinity Gauntlet as well as the stones at a point! Then its up to the Avengers, Warlock, and even Thanos to stop him from basically wiping them out.
Its pretty crazy and ambitious for Marvel to take this story on but we could start seeing it unfold even earlier than Infinity War in another space movie from Marvel. That's right if this rumor is correct then come Guardians of the Galaxy 2 we might see Adam Warlock for the first time. I mean we already might have seen him in the first installment if that was him in that cocoon indeed.
It also seems that the heroes will be going up against themselves due to Magus creating dopplegangers of the heroes as its described in the audition. Its clearly going to be a battle of good vs evil with Magus and his dark avengers and Warlock and our heroes going at it. Its all still up in the air but I'm pretty sure questions will be answered soon so all we have to do is wait. I can really see Thanos being the big threat for Part 1 then having Magus show up once the Avengers thinking the coast is clear for Part 2! What do you think though?
