The Russo Brothers Say That Thanos Is 10 Times More Villainous Than Darth Vader

Marvel’s Joe and Anthony Russo had name-dropped Star Wars’ Darth Vader while they were discussing Thanos, the purple villain in Avengers: Infinity War.

Darth Vader is pretty much a major fixture in the Star Wars universe and is surely one of the world’s greatest screen villains. In a recent discussion, the Russo Brothers threw light on the universe’s crooked Jedi to instill some fear and gravitas into their villain, Thanos.

Anthony Russo had this to say:

“Well this movie is sort of [triggered] by Thanos’ decision and an opportunity for him to make a very aggressive move for the stones. More so than he has at any point in the past. A more effective move for the stones than he has in the past. So when Thanos decides to do it, he really goes for it. And he’s kind of one step ahead of our heroes through the movie. And he puts them through a lot of pain.”

Joe Russo seems to believe that Thanos can be the Darth Vader for this new generation:

“If you took Darth Vader and you multiply him times 10… look, our job with Thanos is to make him the preeminent villain in the Marvel Universe. That is his role in the comics. That’s his role in these movies. And to be a preeminent villain, you have to do some pretty bad things.”
