If everyone is aware, Kevin said the movies will never go dark.

How will you feel if Thanos starts cracking jokes like Ultron?

I can see him cracking jokes. Just look at that cheeky smile he has on every scene his appeared in, you can just tell he has some jokes to tell.

I would give up on the MCU completely. It would make me upset.

That would seriously suck and I'd be pissed. They don't have to make a villain that has jokes... Just look at Obadiah Stane or Winter Soldier.

Thanos in the comics has always had a dry/dark sense of humor, while I don't see him doing stand up I'm not opposed to a little dark comedy from the mad titan.

@manuelb132:I don't personally hold villains cracking jokes against them. It doesn't imply to me that the universe is "lighter" as much as it does that the villains are so atypically overconfident that they do not consider the avengers a threat.

Plus, Ultron is based off tony's personality.

Loki is a trickster god

QS is a smarta**

Cap isn't always mr. serious in the comics

Clint is a known trashtalker/rude joker

Tony IS tony stark through and through

Aside from Ronan's general confusion to the dance off (which I admit was overly silly) there really isn't that much a stretch of character in the movies IMO

I think that realistically everyone just wants to complain about Marvel movies being lighthearted at times because its a movie curtailed towards most age groups instead of specifically me (a 25 year old). I can share my movies with the younger generation if it means a few jokes (its comics people).

Then he cracks jokes it wouldn't be the end of the world And Whedon isn't doing it so I doubt he'll be making jokes

@kgb725: Well personally, and this is just my opinion, I though Ultron was terrible because of it. I liked the characters i.e. Red Skull and Ronan better. Oh well whatever, Ill wait till it come out.

It would totally ruin the character for me. Thanos has been being built up as a massive threat. He doesnt have to be humorless, but he needs to be taken seriously, and he needs to take himself seriously. He does like smiling cheekily a lot but after seeing his talk with Ronan he doesnt seem like the joking type. As long as its nothing silly and whatever few funny lines he says are not stupid and are still threatening I will be fine.

I'm more worried about the other heroes cracking jokes while fighting him and not taking it seriously, like they did with Ultron. I'm also not looking forward to the possibility that they will let Iron Man be the one to stop him, since they seem to give him special treatment. Thor TDW and Iron Man 3 and AoU to an extent were weak due to humor taking over instead of substance and plot, and it ruined the tone and mood. AoU IMO represents a step backwards for the MCU in terms of quality. The avengers movies are now about making people laugh, and then having a huge heroes vs fodder battle at the end, and eventually it is going to get stale. Humor is good but we don't need every hero coming up with something witty every scene, and there are times when the jokes need to stop. I am hoping Thanos doesn't have an army, and that he shakes things up a bit.

At least Joss Whedon is gone.

Thanos will start by kicking ass.... Then he'll get the Infinity Gauntlet.... Then he'll start cracking jokes.... Then he'll lose the Gauntlet and become the Avengers punching bag....

He said they will never be dark, not that they will never be serious.

Infinity war isn't directed by whedon so, their probably wont be as many jokes. even if their was I wouldn't mind some dark humor from thanos.

Nah.

The movie will be written and directed by a different team. More specifically the Cap 2 team. Which toned down the humor, but didn't eliminated.

I trust the Russos.

I wonder if Kevin Fiege knows Marvel Studios made Daredevil? Hmm.

But some dark humor from Thanos wouldn't be too out of character. Plus Whedon is gone so he can count on the Russo bros to take this movie seriously.

Yeah, the guys who made Winter Soldier are the ones directing Infinity War. So I'd expect that level of seriousness from it. That said, I'd like a few arrogant lines about how weak the Avengers are, mocking their combined efforts to stop him.

I'm still not convinced that Thanos will be a good villain. I expected Ultron to be great and he had a lack of character development and motivation and got his a$$ pounded.

I doubt Thanos will be joking around. Whedon's not directing.

@never_give_up: I didn't watch Age of Ultron because it looked freaking ridiculous with all of the content released. A wisecracking Thanos would be the nail in the coffin for me.

AoU wasn't as bad as everyone said but yes there will be hell to pay if "humor for humor's sake" undermines Thanos like it did Ultron. that being said I would almost feel cheated if dry humor and great banter was not in A3 somewhere.
