LA Times film critic Justin Chang has the perfect idea for what Thanos could do during the Academy Awards ceremony.
It was recently revealed that the Avengers could be making an appearance at the Academy Awards this year. The news arrived after it was announced that there would be no official host for the show, as there has been for previous years, due to the firing of actor Kevin Hart. The comedian was originally supposed to host the show but after a controversy arose due to offensive Tweets from his past, Hart was ultimately fired from the position.
Film critic Justin Chang recently took to Twitter to suggest the perfect job for Avengers: Infinity War villain Thanos (Josh Brolin) during the show. The Mad Titan had the goal of wiping out half of all life in the univese when fans last saw him on the big-screen, which he eventually achieved during the film’s finale. Due to this, Chang suggested that the character could host the In Memoriam section during the Academy Awards. Check out the hilarious Tweet below.

The Superhero Movies Of 2018, Ranked From Worst To Best
2018 has gone by too fast. It seems like yesterday when the beginning of the new year was upon us, and the advent of having so many superhero movies hitting theaters seemed like a dream come true for every fanboy and fangirl. It’s also funny to look back and remember that although we ended up with a whopping nine major theatrical superhero movies, we almost had eleven. Sadly, Fox delayed both Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants to 2019 instead.
Even with those two films delayed, 2018 was still a massive year not just at the box office, but for the continued advancement of the genre on a number of levels. Whether it was through the cultural significance of a film like Black Panther or the exciting animated adventures of Incredibles 2 and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, there was no shortage of exciting superhero stories told on the big screen this year.
