A couple of days ago, Empire unveiled the new cover for their next issue, offering our first look at Thanos in the upcoming Avengers: Endgame, and it must be said that the Mad Titan has never looked so intimidating.
Dressed head to toe in armor and sporting a furious scowl on his face, not only does the purple tyrant seem ready to take on Earth’s Mightiest Heroes again, but in a new Instagram post, Josh Brolin insists that he could handle none other than Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson:
“Eat your heart out @therock. I’m coming for you next, little guy. #feelgreatlookgreat”
Of course, even in the realm of fiction, it’s unlikely that we’ll ever see The Rock go head to head with Thanos, especially when Johnson already has plans to enter the DCEU in the role of Black Adam. Besides, the Fast and Furious star seems more interested in fighting Thor these days.

In any case, Brolin’s character will have his hands full enough next month dealing with the Avengers. While last year’s Avengers: Infinity War ended with the intergalactic conqueror finally resting and watching the sun rise on a less-than-grateful universe, the villain is about to be dragged out of retirement as the surviving MCU heroes seek to undo the snap.
So far, Marvel Studios has been very secretive about Thanos’ role in Avengers: Endgame. The movie’s two trailers, for instance, don’t even show the character’s face, let alone give him any lines. This lack of info has created a blank canvas on which the fans can spin their theories, but we’ll find out what’s really in store for the Mad Titan when the film hits theaters on April 26th.
