That’s right – the confirmation is in! Thanos will be in both the Avengers Sequel AND Guardians of the Galaxy! Check out the full story below!
We knew that Thanos would have some part in the next Marvel movie universe story arc, thanks to the ending of the first Avengers movie. Or more specifically the post credit clip, which clearly indicated that Thanos was behind the invasion of Earth all along. But we didn’t know what the involvement precisely would be or indeed the level of involvement Thanos would have.
Sure, the announcement of The Guardians of the Galaxy movie for 2014 gave some indication. As I’ve postulated in the past, the existence of the movie clearly indicated to me that Thanos would have prominence in the next story arc as the Guardians of the Galaxy within the comic books are heavily connected with ‘The Mad Titan’. But again, there was no clear indication as to the level of involvement from Thanos and it was unclear whether he’d actually appear in both movies.
Well now, it seems we have our answer. As Comic Book News confirms:
Armand Rock attended the recent Montreal Comic-Con and spoke with Jim Starlin who said that the deal is already in place. Jim Starlin even mentioned that Thanos will appear in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie in 2014 and The Avengers 2 in 2015.
For those of you who don’t know, Jim Starlin created the Thanos character for the Marvel universe and even got a credit in the Avengers movie so to say he’s a realiable source is something of an understatement.
What do you think? Are you excited to have Thanos appearing in both The Avengers 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy? Which movie are you looking forward to the most out of the two? Let me know in the comments section below – it’d be awesome to hear your opinion!
