Aside from the hit blockbuster itself, who were the most talked about characters of the MCU? Surprisingly, resident baddie #Thanos tops the list, with the God of Thunder coming in second.
Does it also come as a surprise that the Philippines ranks 3rd among the top 10 list of countries that Tweeted the most about the movie? Probably not.
The Avengers saga may have ended for now, but its legacy lives on – Marvel fans will definitely make sure of it. – Rappler.com
