Get Your First Good Look At Thanos In Guardians Of The Galaxy
The Mad Titan known as Thanos is quickly becoming more and more important figure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The purple-skinned alien was revealed as being the puppet master behind the Chitauri invasion in Joss Whedonís The Avengers, and, as we learned earlier this year, he will be playing a small part in James Gunnís Guardians of the Galaxy. With the exception of the ĺ head turn at the end of Joss Whedonís movie, however, we have yet to really get a good look at the character. As you can see thanks to the leak above, thatís no longer the case.
Comic Book Movie picked up on the Instagram embed you see above, which gives us what is easily our best look at Thanos yet. We donít get a full look, as he is relaxed in his throne instead of standing, but I think itís safe to say that the dude is pretty huge. Not only does he look like heíd have no problem tipping over a bus or crushing a manís skull in his fist, but the armor heís wearing looks thick and heavy. Kudos to James Gunn creating a representation that looks like itís ripped straight out of the comics:
In Guardians of the Galaxy and presumably all future Marvel Studios movies, Thanos will be portrayed by Josh Brolin Ė though for his first appearance he is only doing the voice, not motion capture/prosthetics. Though weíve heard rumors about Brolinís involvement going back to late May, the casting announcement was only made official last weekend at San Diego Comic-Con where Brolin walked out on stage like this:
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has said that Thanos wonít be featured in Joss Whedonís The Avengers: Age of Ultron, but his real time in the spotlight is coming. Right now he is by far the biggest link between the Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers and that crossover is inevitable. Itís not too hard to believe that Thanos will be the reason for the two teams to work together.
