Darkseid vs. Thanos Trending On Twitter

Darkseid is currently trending on Twitter with over 14,000 tweets as users are debating the DC villain taking on Marvel's Thanos.

Fans know that Jim Starlin created Thanos for Marvel who was "inspired" by Jack Kirby's Darkseid, but Joss Whedon beat DC to the punch and included the Great Titan in The Avengers post-credit scene. From there, Thanos would go on to become the major villain of the MCU being played by Josh Brolin in Infinity War and The Avengers: Endgame.

At one time, DC, too, did have big plans for Darkseid as director Zack Snyder was going to have him be the major villain of his Justice League movies. Unfortunately - and ironically - Snyder was replaced by Whedon, with Snyder's vision of the film sadly never coming to fruition. It's known the "Snyder Cut" of Justice League would have ended with Wonder Woman cutting off the head of Steppenwolf just as he steps into a Boom Tube, with his head rolling out and landing at the feet of Darkseid on Apocalypse. Darkseid would have then went on to become the villain of Snyder's Justice League 2.

While Snyder's version didn't get a chance to shine, it has been confirmed that Darkseid will be in the upcoming New Gods movie which is being directed by Ava DuVernay as she confirmed the Lord of Apokolips on social media.

Regarding Darkseid vs. Thanos, assuming that Thanos didn't have the Infinity Gauntlet, I would have to give the win to Darkseid. Bear in mind, the Infinity Gauntlet and Infinity Gems (Stones in the MCU) only work in the specific Marvel Universe, so Thanos wouldn't be able to use them if he showed up in the DCEU (of course, things could change). Regarding if Thanos did have the Infinity Gauntlet, as he would be in control of all of everything, and Darkseid came over to the Marvel Universe, I would have to give the win to Thanos.
