Those who stuck around during “The Avengers” end credits know that the mad Titan known as Thanos was behind the Chitauri’s invasion of Earth, and many suspected that he would be “The Avengers 2” villain.
Well Jim Starlin, the creator of Thanos, recently confirmed to Cosmic Book News that not only will the character feature in The Avengers sequel, the villain is also set to appear in the “Guardians of the Galaxy” movie.
The fact that we are even getting a “Guardians of the Galaxy” film is a bit of a shock. Before Marvel announced the film, many assumed that a more well known hero like Iron Fist, Dr. Strange or Black Panther would be getting a film adaptation first. Prior to the announcement of the film, few other than hardcore comic book fans had ever even heard of the Guardians of the Galaxy, a team which features an assortment of strange characters that include Drax the Destroyer and Rocket Raccoon.
Marvel has spent the past 4 years connecting each of their movies and making them part of the same universe, and it looks like that will continue with Phase 2. With “Guardians of the Galaxy” set in space it would make sense for them to come across Thanos first. In the comics Thanos gets hold of the Infinity Gauntlet (a glove that grants its wearer unlimited power) and wipes out half the universe. The Guardians of the Galaxy then band together to defeat him.
There was also a retelling which involved The Avengers fighting Thanos. There’s a clear connection here, and given that the Infinity Gauntlet was already hinted to be in Odin’s Vault in “Thor,” we can see where Marvel might be heading. We can probably expect clues to pop up in “Iron Man 3,” “Thor: The Dark World” and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” followed by the big reveal in “Guardians of the Galaxy” in August 2014.
