WARNING: SPOILERS FOR AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR TO FOLLOW!!
Avengers: Infinity War was the movie that brought together every character that Marvel has been teasing or hyping up for the last 10 years, including Thanos. Fans knew Thanos would be collecting the Infinity Stones, many were surprised to learn that Thanos had already had the Power Stone in his possession prior to Avengers: Infinity War.
In a recent Q&A, the Russo Brothers answered many questions regarding the film. One of the questions asked were regarding the Power Stone since the last time fans saw the stone was in Guardians of the Galaxy where the Power Stone was put in a secure vault on the Planet Xandar. However, in Avengers Infinity War, it is revealed that Thanos not only already has the Power Stone, but he left the Planet Xandar to waste. The Russo Brothers also explained why they chose to not show this in the film:
“Because we thought it’d be one too many- there are so many stones he has to collect and you get into a trap and we thought- we knew where it was in Guardians of the Galaxy – so it was easy to deal with it off screen.”
It makes logical sense as towards why the Russo Brothers decided it was not necessary to show this in the film as Avengers: Infinity War is the longest and biggest film Marvel has ever released yet with so many stories and characters to bring into one film. Not to mention it is also the longest film among all of them so it made sense why the Russo Brothers felt it was not necessary for it to be put into the film. As great as showing Thanos destroying Xandar would have been, it wouldn’t have made more emphasize on the already great narrative they were going for.
However, it hasn’t been ruled out about fans seeing the destruction of Xandar as President of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige has shown interest in doing a Nova film. It would be a great way to show what happened on Xandar. If it were to be a film, it could possibly influence another Marvel film in the future. For now, fans can go watch Avengers: Infinity War which is playing in theaters now!
