The Super Bowl trailer for Marvel’s upcoming extravaganza, Avengers: Infinity War, squeezed in a lot of superheroes into 30 seconds, but the final shot of the spot - an ominous look at the villain, Thanos - has people on Twitter speculating. Based on the scratches on Thanos’ face, they think the film will feature a cameo by Wolverine.
Disney, which owns Marvel Studios, recently took over 20th Century Fox, the studio that owns the rights to the X-Men franchise. This got fans of Marvel excited at the possibility of a crossover between the two franchises. Marvel is no stranger to this strategy - in 2016, they collaborated with Sony Pictures to bring Spider-Man, a character they did not own, to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The eagle-eyed fans have pointed out that the scars on Thanos’ face aren’t the same as the ones we saw a few movies ago, but Thanos’ appearance has changed drastically since Josh Brolin took over the part.
Hugh Jackman, who played Wolverine for close to two decades on film, announced that 2017’s Logan - which has scored an Oscar nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay - would be his final film as the character. The Marvel-Fox deal, valued at over $50 billion, is currently under review for a year.
