Marvel fans may die when Thanos faces the surviving Avengers in the endgame of next month but actor Josh Brolin, who plays the Supervillain, is on social media with Dwayne Johnson ,
Over the weekend Empire Magazine published pictures of its special issue Avengers: Endgame one of which shows Thanos in full combat clothing. Brolin shared the picture on his Instagram account with the caption: "Eat your heart out of @therock. I'll come next, little guy. "
Johnson responded in a comment and said," Bring it to RoboCop! I shove all 6 stones in the ass … and another, just for a good measure. # lucky7 love getting hobbs.
The signing refers to Johnson's character in the upcoming Fast & Furious spin-off, Hobbs & Shaw while we can only assume that the RoboCop combustion is an indication of the fantastic new armor that bears Thanos in the picture.
This is not the first time The Rock has mocked one of the MCU's iconic characters. During a commercial for his television show The Titan Games in which he performed a hammer, Johnson joked that he would be a worthy opponent for Thor himself:
The Empire cover is one The first real insights fans of Thanos had seen since the climate scenes of the last Infinity War . Although he is included in the casting for Endgame he was absent from both trailers, resulting in widespread speculation about his role in the film and the possible development of his character since his decision to extirpate half of all life in the universe.
Avengers: Endgame is expected to wrap the gigantic cliffhanger of decimation (also colloquially called "snapture"), a term used by NPR Glen Weldon ), signaling the the current phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Fans can see the final showdown between Thanos and the Avengers when Endgame appears on April 26th.
