It’s been a few months since Infinity War released, but many fans have still many questions about the MCU film. While a few of these questions involve the use of these stones or how Thanos took down Hulk or if Loki is actually dead. There’s one more question that’s troubling fans: Where was Thanos’ farm located?
During a recent screening and Q&A for Avengers: Infinity War, the Russos were asked the same question and Joe Russo had an answer that’s both specific and mysterious at the same time for Thanos’ farm is not on Titan.
“No, I think that, I’m not sure why…oh, you know what? We’d always just refer to whatever planet he’s on as Titan 2, you know, and I think they probably just didn’t put the 2 in there as he found a new home,” Russo said.
This question stemmed from a concept art released by Pete Thompson after the release of Infinity War. This featured Thanos’ peaceful farm, which led many fans to speculate that how Thanos has now retired to Titan since the last time we saw it, Titan was a mess of destruction while the farm looked like a mush and peaceful world. Some even speculated that Thanos may have used the Gauntlet to restore Titan or could be a confirmation of time travel.
These ideas are now off the table, but the location of Thanos’ farm still remains unknown. Earlier, Anthony Russo told Uproxx that Thanos retiring to the farm was symbolic of Mad Titan keeping his armour down like a holy warrior after completing a mission.
“He’s like a holy warrior,” Anthony said. “Once he puts his armor down in that movie he becomes like a holy warrior and this is his resting place for him. He says in the film he’s just going to sit and watch the sunrise.”
“He accomplished his mission,” added Joe.
The duo also shed some light on the scene in which Thanos sacrificed Gamora for the Soul Stone. It ended up being a pivotal moment in the film — and for Thanos himself.
“It was really when, the point where we decided that the movie was Thanos’ movie, we needed the lowest moment of the film to belong to him, so that’s when we started to develop the Soul Stone story. How could we create pain? How could we dimensionalize him so he went on this journey during the film,” Joe said.
Avengers: Infinity War was the third Marvel film directed by the Russos, who previously helmed Captain America: The Winter Solider and Captain America: Civil War. The dynamic sibling team will also be directing the highly-anticipated Avengers 4.
