Will Kang be very different from Thanos? The screenwriter of Avengers 5 has revealed all the details about the great villain in an interview.
Avengers 5 announces rift between Kang and Thanos, Speaking to Games Radar, screenwriter for the big Marvel Studios film, Jeff Loveness, has explained how Jonathan Majors’ villain will measure up to the archenemy of the MCU. And he directly mentions Josh Brolin’s character who brought the world to a standstill in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
The main difference to Loveness is Kang’s humanity, with Thanos being a big purple guy from space done with CGI. And the screenwriters of Avengers 5 intend to make that distinction clear by relying on the fact that the victor is above all else, “For me it’s about humanity. Obviously, the Mad Titan is a great iconic villain, but he’s also a great purple CGI guy. He’s an alien from outer space. I really wanted to bend that it’s a human being.” “
The comparisons put Major’s villains above
Even in Avengers 5, Kang was said to be a very lonely character., as Lovelace teased that fans will see humanity and even vulnerability in him before he takes over from Thanos. “She’s also a very lonely character. We’re going to see her in a lot of different ways in the future, but I really want to see the humanity and even the vulnerability of this character before she reaches these kind of apocalyptic heights.” wanted to introduce.
Jeff Loveness then returns to comparisons with Thanos, admitting Kang is an almost infinite Mad Titan and promises that this new Avengers 5 villain may compare to him on an exponential level., “He’s a top-tier, A-list Avengers villain. What do you do when you think you’re not up against it enough? How do you face the challenge of this generation, which is like the Mad Titan, but on an exponential level?” But? It’s almost infinite. I think we’re building things up for a very dynamic story.” This film can be one of the biggest ‘boom’ of this decade.
