It was just a cameo appearance of Thanos where Damion Poitier portrayed the character of Thanos. After that, the big role of Thanos was in the movie Guardian of the Galaxy where Josh Brolin signed multiple movies contract with MCU. Since then Josh has been playing the role of Thanos.

Thanos was not like that we saw him. He was a good child. Since Thanos witnessed the destruction of Titan and its people, he wants to destroy half the universe to avenge the deaths of his people and save the universe. That’s why he started collecting the Infinity Stones. There is a total of 6 Infinity Stones which completes the Infinity Gauntlet. The Gauntlet has a special power that it can do anything wished by the wearer. It works after snapping with Gauntlet.

Thanos got 5 gems in Avengers: Infinity War before he almost killed Iron Man. Dr. Strange stopped him to not kill Iron Man and gave him the Infinity Stone he has. Dr. Strange was aware of winning upon them as he looked future where Iron Man sacrifices himself to save the world.  After, Thanos got all Infinity Stones at the end of Avengers: Infinity War he snaps and kills half of the universe. But Avengers: Endgame showed us that the Avengers collected the stones from different points in time and brought half of the universe back. With the Infinity Gauntlet in the Hand Iron Man, he snapped and killed all the evils including Thanos.

Thanos was right in his place. He wanted to control the Universe which is going towards disappointment. But he could have used another path to control the problems instead of erasing half of the universe. However, Thanos gave us all the excitement and suspences at a high level. He was one of the reasons behind the success of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. He probably would be one of the most-watched villains of all time.
