It was reported earlier that “Avengers: Infinity War” will not just focus on Thanos as the primary villain but there are chances that there could be a second villain that could join Thanos. There were rumors that probably Magus could be the second villain alongside the mad titan and discussions on the same was going on. It can now be confirmed that Magus indeed will be making his presence felt along with Thanos. This means “Avengers” will now have two major villains to battle in the two parter epic “Avengers: Infinity War”.
According to Youth Health Magazine, fans were disappointed that nothing from the “Avengers: Infinity War” was revealed at the San Diego Comic Con. However a new update confirms that there is another villain that will be featuring in the movie and that is none other than Magus. Magus is said to be the bad side of Adam Warlock who was responsible for assembling the Infinity Gauntlet. It is also being said that he created duplicates of the superheroes in order to create a universe of evil. As of now the casting has not been finalized but there are a couple of names that are believed to be in the casting list. Amongst them are Jason Isaacs who is known for playing the role of Lucius Malfoy in “Harry Potter” franchise and Tobias Menzies known for “Outlander”.
Although Magus will not be featuring in “Avengers: Infinity War”, director of “Guardians of the Galaxy” James Gunn confirmed that Magus has already had a cameo in the movie. James in an interview with Empire Magazine confirmed the same and said, “There are the slither creature from my movie “Slither” behind the Collector, those guys are pretty obvious. You have Adam Warlock’s cocoon, you have all sorts of other characters from Marvel movies.”
Having made a cameo in “Guardians of the Galaxy”, it would be interesting to see Magus’s role expanding in the upcoming Marvel projects and to see what kind of damage does he create for the “Avengers”. Not forgetting the fact that the superhero team will have gone through a major change post the events of “Captain America: Civil War” and will have to really step up their efforts if they were to protect the Earth from possibly two of the most powerful villains. “Avengers: Infinity War” will hit theatres on May 4th 2018.
