The Marvel Universe has almost as many wild characters as the real universe does, and many of them, with good reason, sound made up. I’m a fairly seasoned Marvel reader but I guess I need to bone up on Thanos, since the villains revealed in the new Avengers: Infinity War poster are totally unfamiliar to me. Here’s the list:
- Corvus Glaive: Thanos’ general and military expert, armed with a staff that can penetrate any material.
- Proxima Midnight: Corvus’ wife, wielding a spear created from a star.
- Ebony Maw: The Steve Bannon of the Thanos administration, with mind control superpowers.
- Cull Obsidian: Big guy, will probably fight the Hulk.
These are the usual suspects that sources say are pictured in the recently released Avengers: Infinity War poster. And good news if you’re getting antsy about seeing the film itself – it’s coming out a week earlier than originally scheduled, opening on April 27th, 2018.
