New Infinity War Photo Release Confirms Existence Of “Titan”

Marvel fans will get a chance to visit the home planet of the Mad Titan Thanos or its ruins, in Avengers: Infinity War.

Fans and media present at Marvel’s last summer’s San Diego Comic-Con or D23 panels chirped about a scene from the movie’s footage wherein Thanos wielded his Infinity Gauntlet to pluck a moon out of the sky and throw it at Tony Stark. Although the scene hasn’t been shown to the general public, one of its still was officially released by Entertainment Weekly today, acknowledging that the planet where all this happened was Thanos’ home planet, Titan.

Earlier a lot of people had expected the location to be Xandar, the home planet of the Nova Corps. If you remember, Nova Prime (Glenn Close) is guarding the purple Space Stone which was handed over to him in Guardians of the Galaxy. The Avengers: Infinity War trailer showed Thanos possessing that stone. Therefore, he either managed to steal it from Xandar or grabbed it after destroying the whole planet.

As it turns out, Marvel confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that the ruins are of the planet Titan. This is what the official write-up from the magazine stated:

What do you do with the mad that you feel? If you’re Thanos, you use the purple and blue Infinity Stones to rip a moon out of orbit and hurl it against the ground like a dinner plate. While fans have speculated that this may be devastation on Xandar, where the Nova Corps was guarding the purple power stone from the Orb, Marvel tells EW this shot is actually on Titan, the ruined homeworld of Thanos.

Now that we know it, there is going to be a moment in Avengers: Infinity War when the battle will be fought on Thanos’ home turf. It is also clear that Iron-Man is a part of this battle, and as revealed by the footage, he is at the receiving end of Thanos’ moon throw. Since Tony Stark’s new Bleeding Edge Iron-Man suit is space ready, and Peter Parker has put on the advanced Iron-Spider suit, there is a great possibility of various Avengers taking on Thanos in the galactic depths.

Maybe this is how the Guardians of the Galaxy finally meet the Avengers? Everything will become clear once Avengers: Infinity War releases on April 27.
