Avengers: Infinity War gave MCU fans what they’ve long asked for, a worthy villain. It was done by making a movie that focuses on Thanos, expanding upon his backstory and giving us a reason for why he is the way he is. But what audiences saw was was just a snippet of what Marvel came up with, according to the creator of the Mad Titan Jim Starlin, because a ton of footage was cut out to keep the running time at an appropriate length.
Last weekend, Jim Starlin sat down with Collider at Las Vegas Comic Con and expanded upon his role in helping Infinity War directors Anthony and Joe Russo develop the character of Thanos. During his discussion, he revealed that he was told on set that 30 minutes of Thanos’ origin story had to be cut out.
As it is, Infinity War is 2 hours and 40 minutes long. The extra time would have put it at over three hours.
Dropping even more insatiable nuggets of information, Starlin went on to reveal that not only are audiences going to get a chance to these scenes, they can be viewed as a director’s cut that incorporates all of the lost Thanos scenes into a special edition version of Avengers: Infinity War.
That’s a lot to digest and to get extremely excited about. We may also get more scenes of him kicking the crap out of the Avengers. That’s always fun to watch.
Though we don’t peg Starlin as someone who would lie about such a thing, it should be noted that Marvel has not announced any special edition home release of Avengers: Infinity War.
The movie is still in theaters, so a home release might still be a ways off. That’s when we’ll able able to confirm if Starlin’s claim is true, which we are very much crossing our fingers for.
