Iron Man: Thanos in the movie opposite Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.)?


What if Thanos and Obadiah Stane were one?

While Thanos could be at the origin of the arrival of Wade Wilson in the MCU , the Mad Titan could also have an influence particular on the beginnings of the Marvel universe. First appeared in the post-credits scene of The Avengers (2012), the flagship antagonist of the Infinity Phase subsequently represented the great threat of the final feature films. However, a new theory is that the Mad Titan entered the Marvel universe much earlier. According to CBR, several similarities between the first movie Iron Man and the latest Avengers would support this idea, starting with the common physical appearance of Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges) and Thanos ( Josh Brolin ). Moreover, the relationship of the first with Tony Stark and the second with his adopted children could also be a clue important reminding that the Mad Titan was already present in Iron Man.

The theory goes on to suggest that Thanos took possession of Stane's body and goes so far as to admit that the Crazy Titan therefore knew Iron Man before the events of Infinity War .

It's true that in the Russo Brothers movie, the enemy of the Avengers addressed himself to Stark with respect, a mark that the character played by Josh Brolin had not witnessed when he faced Thor or Captain America. Would it then be possible that Thanos was actually Tony's initial mentor? If it is difficult to imagine such a connection, the theory goes further by admitting that Stane is linked to the Hydra and that this criminal organization would have actually been piloted by Thanos with the aim of acquiring the Infinity Stones. . An original idea that would push us to review Iron Man with a new perspective, this suggesting that the Mad Titan was actually pulling the strings of the MCU from the start. We must admit that this influence would not be surprising given the Machiavellianism of the character, especially since the heroes of the Marvel universe do not seem to be done with him, the screenwriters of Avengers: Endgame having confirmed that Thanos was still alive.
