After seeing Avengers: Infinity War, I had to do a comic strip with Thanos. Middle-manager Thanos may cause fewer computer-generated explosions, but he’s still got a job to do.
The Marvel movies are now impossible to evaluate on their own because they all tie together, referencing the previous films and planning out the next bunch of movies. Each film is an episode in the most expensive television series ever made.
What continues to impress me is that with such a large cast, everyone got some time in the spotlight. The tones of each different group of heroes – the playfulness of Spiderman and Iron Man, the retro goofiness of Thor and Guardians of the Galaxy, etc – all meshed together to show that all this is truly one big universe and any character can feasibly end up in a scene with any other character.
