Bowen Designs: Thanos

As usual at the end of the Marvel movies, there will be a short snippet or a hint on what is coming next. For the movie The Avengers, if you have waited for the ending scene, we see the Chitauri leader talking to a mysterious figure saying that the humans are not to be underestimated, and to face them would be “to court Death itself.” After that, the mysterious figure turns his head and smile. That is Thanos. Check out the ending scene that is shared in YouTube.
