Thanos is Not Part of Avengers: Age of Ultron

6 hours ago

Joss Whedon has been saying that Thanos will appear in "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Avengers: Age of Ultron," before becoming the main villain in "Avengers 3." We already know that Thanos will be played by Josh Brolin and that he's part of "Guardians of the Galaxy." But now comes word from Marvel head Kevin Feige that Thanos will not appear in "Avengers: Age of Ultron." "[Thanos is] not a part of 'Avengers 2,'" he explained. "I think Thanos does what he wants, and shows up where he wants to, and I'm not going to tell him otherwise. By the way, we're still making 'Avengers 2,' so nothing's definitive one way or the other, actually." It sounds like there's no plan for Thanos to get more than a potential cameo. Stay tuned. »

While promoting "Guardians of the Galaxy," director James Gunn spoke about the future of the franchise, hinting that it's very possible that "Guardians of the Galaxy" characters will one day appear in a movie with "The Avengers" superheroes. "We talked about all sorts of possibilities [for a crossover] and I know what the basic plan is," said the helmer. "That could or could not include a couple of Avengers and a couple of Guardians meeting up, or all of the Avengers and all of the Guardians. But, we do inhabit the same universe and they're pretty big personalities that are likely to, at some point or another, run into each other." Vin Diesel agreed, stating: "I think there's going to be huge fans of the Guardians and there are huge fans of the Avengers and I think the discussion has already been had. I think the audience may demand something like that." »
