Avengers: Endgame is all set to become the biggest blockbuster of all-time. Fans of the superhero movie are flocking theatres in great numbers to watch the greatest battle between the Avengers and the most powerful villain Thanos, who wants to wash out half of the population of the world with just a snap. Well, Thanos played by Josh Brolin is undoubtedly one of the most iconic characters and if you are a fan of MCU, we don't need to tell you the reason for it. While you must be totally fascinated with the character of Thanos, do you know that the character is, in fact, inspired from a character from another film? Can you guess it? Well, let us do the honours.
The characterisation of Thanos is based on Marlon Brando's role as Colonel Walter Kurtz in Apocalypse Now which released in 1979. The epic war film, which was directed by Francis Ford Coppola, was a huge box office success at the time. Coming back to Avengers: Endgame, the superhero venture has turned out to be the highest weekend grosser of all-time at the global box office. It is soon expected to surpass the business of James Cameron's Avatar to become the biggest blockbuster ever. The film's opening performance outside the US has been marvellous. In addition to China, where it is already the number four title of all time. It scored the highest opening weekend in 43 markets including India, UK/Ireland, Australia, South Korea, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina and France.
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, with a screenplay by the writing team of Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, it features the ensemble cast of Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Stan Lee, Tom Hiddleston, Wong, Klementieff, Gillan, Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Gywenth Paltrow, Josh Brolin, Chris Pratt and Paul Wright.
