Film and TV entertainment giant Netflix made an amusing statement on Marvel’s character ‘Thanos’ over his looks in films he appeared part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe(MCU).
” Thanos was mocked for his skin colour
Recall the post credit scene from ‘The Avengers’? It was the only scene where Thanos made an appearance, after which he appeared in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ in 2014 and in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ in 2015. Netflix posted a collage of Thanos’ first appearance and a shot of him in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’, joking about his skin lightened in each appearance.
Throughout the three films Thanos has appeared in, his skin has been lightened and interestingly, Thanos was played by Damion Poitier in ‘The Avengers.’ Josh Brolin took up the role in 2014 for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ although his role was very minimal. In the universe, he had adopted Nebula and Gamora.
