While promoting his new film The Predator at San Diego Comic-Con, Iron Man 3 director Shane Black fired a slight diss at the Marvel film Avengers: Infinity War.
In conversation with Comic-Con attendees, Black said that Thanos as a threat could have been believable were it not for the fact that after defeating superheroes like The Hulk and Captain America in the film, Spider-Man being able to hurt him felt inconsistent. Here’s what he had to say:
“One moment there’s a train coming at him he can turn it into a flock of birds,” Black said during Hall H presentation for The Predator. “The next minute Spider-Man is coming at him and he’s like, ‘Oh, my eyes! It’s got webbing!’ I loved the movie, it’s just, the kid had to do something, so…”

10 Marvel & DC Villains Who Can Take Down Thanos
Thanos may have just taken down some of Marvel’s finest superheroes in Avengers: Infinity War, but he’s not the deadliest villain in comics. Both DC and Marvel are full of characters who are more powerful than the Mad Titan.
Admittedly, whenever Thanos is in possession of all six infinity stones he is the most powerful being in the universe, but anyone can harness that power if they successfully gather all the necessary components. If anything, Thanos is just incredibly patient and willing to wait to achieve his goals, a trait not many supervillains in DC or Marvel have. With the gauntlet, Thanos is essentially an immortal God who can snap his fingers and turn entire worlds to dust, but without it he’s just another villain who wants to rule the universe. He’s clearly a strong and terrifying guy, but if he were to face any of these villains without his Gauntlet, Thanos would be in big trouble.
