A mysterious being who will take him on an unparalleled journey through space and time – providing Thanos with important glimpses into his future. His greatest triumphs, and his most crushing defeats. Now, Thanos must face down Mephisto, the Avengers, and even his future self if he is to prepare for what comes next! But can he?

Looks like they're lining up the look of comic book Thanos to match up with the MCU concept art.

Marvel's conscious antagonism to sensible numbering has gone from aggravating to adorably endearing. I can't be mad anymore.
