He hadn't thought of it like that, but...
Kevin Feige has compared Thanos to the end boss of a video game. The Marvel Studios president spoke with HuffPost about Thor: The Dark World and was asked about whether Thanos, who appeared at the end of The Avengers but won't be in the sequel Age of Ultron, is like a video game's final boss fight.
"We never thought of it exactly like that, but I'd say that's... fair," said Feige. "It's also, you look at some classic story lines in the comics and they tease out characters like that -- big bads like that -- for sometimes years. I think Walter Simonson was teasing Surter for years before he popped up. It's fun to have the luxury to build somebody up like that."
Thanos will reportedly be a part of Guardians of the Galaxy, which releases next year.
