This would be hard to achieve with an actor since Hulk in Avengers was like eightfeet tall and like 1,200 pounds from the look of him. So which route should they go for Thanos? CGI or prostetics and makeup? I always tend to favor practical effects to CGI where ever possible. Curious what others think.
I think they should do prosthetics with CGI effects on his body, to make him look bigger. He should be a little bit taller than Chris Hemsworth, and physically bigger, hence the cgi, or effects. I sort of imagined a prosthetic and mo cap, or aleast effects to Make Thanos appear taller, and bigger. He isn't as big as Hulk, but he is physically built pretty big.

and here with hulk

I would prefer practical effects as much as possible over cgi. They're getting good but the tech still isn't quite there. Hulk still looked like a cartoon amongst the Avengers.
I would prefer effects as well, just some cgi may be needed for his mass, and I am not sure where you are getting a similar physique to Thor from lol

That's because he doesn't have a similar physique to Thor lol. Thanos is bigger and more muscular than thor, it's really not that close, just look at the pictures, Thanos at his worst drawings still seems more muscular, and bigger.
