The day of reckoning is almost here, boys and girls. (No, we're not talking about the elections)
On 25 April, the Avengers will assemble once again - and probably for the last time.
This time, Earth's Mightiest Heroes will be going up against the biggest bad the Marvel Cinematic Universe has ever seen: Thanos.
In 'Avengers: Infinity War
', the purple-faced villain, also known as the Mad Titan, is on a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones. When combined with the Infinity Gauntlet, Thanos wields the power to destroy the entire universe - with just a snap of the finger!
So yeah, the stakes are really high for the Avengers as they are the only ones who could stop him from collecting all the stones and save the universe.
After watching the trailers and all the TV spots (numerous times, we must add), we are convinced that the formidable Thanos is actually a fellow Malaysian.
Don't believe us? Take a look at the pointers below and tell us you don't think the same:
#1 He's extremely big-sized
If you didn't already know, Malaysia is the most obese country
in Asia. Just take a look at Thanos; he's huge! Now, we aren't denying that he's also packing tonnes and tonnes of muscle, but do remember that he did a lot of sitting in the Marvel movies (like, ten years worth) while other people do his work for him. Last we checked, you can't really gain a lot of muscle by just sitting, so confirm he must be fat lah
#2 He took a really, really long time to make a move
It took him ten years and 18 Marvel movies to finally make his move. You know what we call that? Malaysian timing.
#3 He's a big bully
If we take a look at the stats, there was a steep 14.5 per cent increase
in bullying cases in 2017 compared to 2015 in Malaysia. We don't know about you, but five people ganging up on one helpless victim in Loki sounds a lot like bullying to us.
#4 He goes around stealing stuff
In 'Avengers: Infinity War
', we will see Thanos travelling around the universe stealing the Infinity Stones. We will likely see him robbing the Nova Corps for the purple Power Stone, and in the trailer, we see him ripping the yellow Mind Stone from Vision. In our part of the universe, the city of Kuala Lumpur saw a 57 per cent rise
in snatch theft and robbery cases in 2017 compared to 2016. Coincidence? We think not.
#5 He simply parks his vehicle
One bad habit Malaysians (OK, not all Malaysians) possess that everyone hates is that they park their vehicles anywhere their hearts desire, with no mind for consequences or the incovenience caused. Double park, triple park, on a curb, in the middle of the road; as long as there's an empty spot, you'll find their vehicle there. And like a true Malaysian, Thanos parks his vehicle right in the middle of Manhattan, like his grandfather owns the sky like that. Shame on you, Thanos!
#6 He has an entourage
Everywhere he goes, Thanos has his group of entourage with him. Known as the Black Order, it consists of Corvus Glaive, Cul Obsidian, Ebony Maw and Proxima Midnight. Their job is to do Thanos' bidding, ensure that their big boss is safe and make sure that he looks like a VIP. So...does Thanos sound like a Malaysian Dato'/Tan Sri to you guys?
#7 He likes gems, jewels and stones
We know you know who we are talking about, so let's just quietly nod our heads and move on, OK?
