This Is The True Story Behind Thanos Being Arrested By The Toronto Police


If you are an Avengers: Infinity War fan then you might have spotted an image going around on social media which features Thanos in his full armor, being pushed into the back of a police car. However, the “arrest” wasn’t a real one (even though he might have broken countless laws courtesy his Infinity War actions), but, a sudden photo shoot in the vicinity of Dundas Square in Toronto.


The masked Thanos in the image is 42-year-old Frank Coraci who put on the costume and headed down Yonge St to have some fun. He also had a handler accompanying him so that he didn’t bump into people and only aimed to make people happy. “I couldn’t walk two steps without someone asking for a selfie,” Coraci said.

“The @TorontoPolice do what the @Avengers couldn’t do, stop #Thanos #jobwelldone #WeAreHiring #JoinUs #torontopolice #jobs #TheAvengersInfinityWar.”

Later Sgt. Noel DeGuzman approached him, and while Coraci’s initially anticipated some trouble, DeGuzman told him that he loved Marvel movies and wanted a great photo for his daughter.

“What started as good-hearted banter between two Marvel fans and subsequently a photo for my daughter, apparently exploded onto social media,”DeGuzman mentioned in an email to the Star. “I am thankful that it put a smile on many people’s faces.”


The image has gone viral online, made even better by the caption “what the Avengers couldn’t do.” DeGuzman said that the photo made his daughter smile. Apparently, Thanos can do a good deed at times.

As for Thanos getting jailed, we shouldn’t let Star-Lord know it, or he might just go there and somehow set the Mad Titan free. Sorry, if you felt bad, but, couldn’t stop referring to that.
