The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a complicated place where just about everything is way more important than it initially seems — including dialogue. These are some of the most significant exchanges that slipped by audiences at the time, only to leave a major impact on them later on.
In Avengers: Infinity War, Tony Stark confronts Thanos on Titan, only to be addressed by name.
The line is clearly dripping with deeper meaning, but the obvious question is, how does Thanos know Tony Stark?
The commentary track for the movie answered that question when screenwriter Christopher Markus explained:
"You realize this interesting parallel between Thanos and Tony. They're both aware of something from an early point and constantly having to deal with being smarter. Thanos is a futurist as much as Tony Stark."
The connection between the two, while it has its limits, certainly explains why the Mad Titan would gravitate toward Stark as a fellow being that struggles with the "big issues."
But what about the fact that he addressed him by name? Co-director Joe Russo cleared that one up by explaining that Thanos is, quote, "aware of Stark from the original Battle of New York as the person who undid the plan."
This double whammy of Stark initially getting Thanos' attention with a nuke and then connecting with him as a fellow genius certainly goes a long way in explaining why the Mad Titan would have such respect for his opponent.
