Here’s How Much Thanos We Will See in GUARDIANS


Last week Josh Brolin was revealed as the voice behind “The Mad Titan” Thanos in Guardians of the Galaxy. We also learned that Thanos “will have a more prominent role” in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

But how much Thanos will we see in Guardians? Watch out as there could be mild spoilers ahead.

According to Vulture, Guardians of the Galaxy will see the “Big Bad” get the fourth stone in the Infinity Gauntlet held by The Collector (Benicio Del Toro).

Here’s what Vulture claim:

Though Thanos didn’t appear until the very end of The Avengers, Vulture has learned that he’ll emerge in the first act of Guardians of the Galaxy, albeit via hologram. That will remain Thanos’s preferred method of communication throughout the film — a move the Mad Titan likely cribbed from the equally enigmatic Emperor Palpatine in The Empire Strikes Back — though Thanos finally shows up in the purple flesh for a scene that also features Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) and Nebula (Karen Gillan), who do the Mad Titan’s bidding and serve as the primary adversaries in Guardians. Still, though Thanos is only briefly glimpsed throughout Guardians, his presence is palpable throughout: Characters reference him often and fearfully, and he has familial ties to Gamora (Zoe Saldana), our green-skinned female lead.

Though Brolin’s role in Marvel’s next outing may be limited, Thanos will apparently re-emerge after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron and will likely serve as the main antagonist for The Avengers 3.That’s good news. I’m glad its not just a cameo like in Avengers.

The Guardians of the Galaxy is written and directed by James Gunn, with a story by Gunn and Nicole Perlman, and the film also stars Chris Pratt, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, Gregg Henry, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker and Vin Diesel.

The film will hit theaters on July 31st in the UK and August 1st in North America.
