Re: If the Guauntlet fits, you must admit .... it's time for Thanos!
Why can't Thanos be the big bad in Avenger 2 and NOT be killed? Why can't he simply be defeated and run away to lick his wounds? Why can't he try the Avengers, be defeated, then acquire the Infinity Gauntlet to try the Avengers again in a future film?
I think it is pretty clear Thanos will be in Avengers 2 but I don't think he will be completely defeated. It seems to me there is too much material for Thanos to be over and done in only one phase. Loki wasn't killed off, why does Thanos have to be?
