The Marvel Cinematic universe is carried by its incredible heroes - Iron Man, Captain Marvel, and Black Panther, just to name a few. That being said, their stories wouldn't exist without the devious work of some truly sinister villains. One of the things that makes big baddies like Thanos and Ultron so compelling is the foreshadowing that's woven into their stories. Some of these moments take some deeper understanding, like how in Iron Man Obadiah Stane tells Tony Stark that the arc reactor is his "ninth symphony," a grim reference to Stane's plans for Tony. There's also subtle foreshadowing in the background of several movies. In Thanos' first appearance in the MCU during the post-credit scene in The Avengers, a half-exploded planet can be seen in the background, alluding to his future intentions. There are even clues that cross from one movie to the next! In Thor: Ragnarok, Hela makes the flippant remark that the Infinity Gauntlet in Thor's vault is fake. Looking ahead to Avengers: Infinity War, she turns out to be very right about that!
If you're a movie lover who can't get enough of the details, check out this amazing list of foreshadowing moments involving MCU villains.
