Last week it was announced that Josh Brolin would provide the voice of the villain Thanos in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. Brolin is such a great choice for this badass character. The Mad Titan was introduced to the Marvel cinematic universe in the post credits sequence of The Avengers, and he's going to play a major role in the universe. One day he will emerge from the shadows with his Infinity Gauntlet to possibly give The Avengers a run for their money.
Thanks to Vulture we have some new details on how much we will see of Thanos in Guardians of the Galaxy, and what we will learn about his plans to assemble all the Infinity Stones.
For those of you who don't want to know this this information then stop reading now… SPOILERS Ahead!
Here's what the site revealed:
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… 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…. The movie also presents another one of the Infinity Stones that Thanos is trying to retrieve to assemble his powerful Gauntlet.
The Infinity Gauntlet includes six gems that can manipulate Space, Mind, Soul, Reality, Time, and Power. The post credits scene in Thor: The Dark World featured the Collector (Benicio Del Toro) come into possession of one of them called the Aether a.k.a the Power Stone, and announced, "One down, five to go."
There might be two other Infinity Stones in the Marvel cinematic universe that we've seen such as the glowing Tesseract featured in Captain America and The Avengers, which is likely the Space Stone. Then there's Loki's blue-tipped scepter, which could be the Mind Stone. That's just fan speculation for now, but it makes sense to me!
Whatever Marvel's ultimate plan for Thanos is, it's slowly coming into focus, and I personally don't think it will be fully realized until the third Avengers movie. In the meantime, he'll be brooding in the shadows throughout the rest of the films waiting for his time to strike!
