Marvel's latest offering, Avengers: Infinity War has lived up to its hype and I can say so after watching it two days in advance. The movie was one of the most anticipated, especially for all the MCU fans and it was a dream come true to see Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy fight beside each other against the mighty Thanos. The movie was a visual delight with brilliant script and direction by the Russo brothers. Though the movie belongs to the deadly villain Thanos, hands down, there were few other characters that stood out from the rest. Josh Brolin as Thanos is impressive and he will make you love him and hate him at the same time. He's vulnerable yet strong. It's difficult to beat him yes, but not impossible. While I expected this Marvel mash up to be unfair to certain characters since it's highly unlikely to give equal attention to everybody, Infinity War surprisingly is fair to one and all. Every superhero has his/her moment yet there are few who will win your heart and make you whistle for them. I personally believe these five characters were better than the rest and that's on the basis of scenes allotted to them. Though the duration or timing for each actor was more or less the same, there were few who managed to outdo the others and shine a little brighter. Wondering who made it to our list? Let's delve into it... Also Read: Avengers: Infinity War movie review – The film can be easily termed as the best one in the Marvel Cinematic Universe
Mark my words when I say, you will fall in love with Thanos. He's flawless in the entire movie and there are few scenes where you even feel for him. He's definitely the best villain Marvel offered since 2008. As we said above, the movie belongs to this Mad Titan completely and there's very little for anyone to shine after him. I can't believe I am raving about a villain leaving aside all the other superheroes. But yes, that's Thanos for you! He deserves all your attention.
I can't stop gushing about this God of Thunder - Thor. Give me an entire day and I will go on and on about him. He was outstanding in the film and probably one of the most important characters. There cannot be an Infinity War without Thor and you will understand its deeper meaning after watching the movie. He was brilliant and his battle scenes were epic. Thor easily had all my attention despite Iron Man's presence and he's the one to watch out for in the movie. Also Read: I watched Avengers: Infinity War and here’s why Thor got all my attention
Tony Stark - someone who's 'cursed' with knowledge is everyone's favourite superhero? Or at least he gets the majority of votes. His journey from a playboy to a mentor to Spider-Man proves the versatility in his characters. Stark aka Iron Man easily shines the brightest after Thor in the movie (again for me). His certain scenes with Thanos especially, will give you goosebumps. He's out there fighting the deadly villain in space while his other friends are fighting his army on Earth. His 'good friend' Captain America even refers to him as Earth's biggest defender. What more proof do you need?
Doctor Strange's banter with Tony Stark was one of the major highlights of this Marvel mashup. Benedict Cumberbatch is a great actor and he proves his acting nuances as Doctor Strange. One particular scene (not mentioning the detail) belongs to this Sorcerer Supreme completely. After Thor if there was anyone essential for the movie, it was Doctor Strange! Again, you will understand only when you watch the movie.
Spider - Man
Spider - Man is still a kid, yet he was fearless to face someone as deadly as Thanos. He voices his displeasure when Stark asks him to leave the Thanos' ship and convinces him to let him stay. He fights Thanos like a true superhero and his innocence is hard to ignore throughout the movie. The friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man is not restricted to 'neighbourhood' anymore.
