New Avengers: Infinity War Reveals Detail Thanos' Motivations, Thor's Arc

The not so worthy God of Thunder?

Walt Disney Studios

Avengers: Infinity War is so close to releasing proper, but that hasn't stopped the reveals coming thick and fast.

The most recent ones come curtesy of Toys 'R' Us, with the retailer having just revealed key character bios for several of Infinity War's leading characters. Brief overviews are provided for Captain America, Black Widow and Hulk, but the most important details lie in the descriptions for Spider-Man, Thanos and the God of Thunder himself, Thor.

While Marvel themselves have been selective with what they reveal to the wider public prior to the film's release (as was demonstrated in the other month's Infinity War tie-in comic), a few leaks have slipped through their fingers. Thor's change in arsenal was first leaked in a LEGO set (as is often the case with these films), as was Spidey's change in threads.

Whereas those reveals detailed a simple change in aesthetic however, these bios go one step further and clue us in on a few of the motivations that'll compel several of the film's leading characters - Spider-Man, Thor and Thanos in particular...
