What The Creator Of Thanos Thought About Avengers Endgame And The Ending

Avengers: Endgame is finally in theatres, and it brings about an end to storylines and narrative arcs that started a decade ago.

One major storyline has been the Infinity Gauntlet narrative that’s been the driving force of the interconnected stories thus far with the evil Thanos . Jim Starlin, who created Thanos (and Gamora and Drax) and also wrote the Infinity Gauntlet comic, has now shared his thoughts on Avengers: Endgame and Thanos’s fate.

Speaking to IGN, Starlin said he was “amazed” and “flabbergasted” by the events of Endgame. “The up and downs that you have on it. There’s some really heartbreaking moments mixed in with a lot of really funny little instances here and there,” he explained.

Thanos is killed twice in Endgame; once by Thor, who lops his head off, and a second time–for good–when Tony Stark wields the Gauntlet and snaps Thanos out of existence. Starlin remarked that he was particularly impressed by the way actor Josh Brolin performed Thanos’s final moments, when he accepted his fate and sat silently, awaiting his doom.

“His final moments in the movie I think are just priceless,” Starlin said. “His demeanor once he realizes what’s happening, I think that’s just one of those little moments in film that everyone is gonna remember. It’s like acceptance and taking it like a man, you know? I thought that was perfectly played.”

Also in the interview, Starlin said the character Gamora in the Marvel movies is above all the closest representation of what he created in the comics.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
