"Guardians of the Galaxy"- The Power of 'Thanos'

9 July 2014 4:17 PM, PDT

Sneak Peek a new 'extended trailer', featuring previously unseen footage from Marvel Studios' "Guardians Of The Galaxy", including a first official look @ 'Yondu' played by Michael Rooker ("The Walking Dead"):

In the new film, actor Josh Brolin ("Sin City: A Dame To Kill For") voices the character 'Thanos'.

Thanos debuted in Marvel Comics' "Iron Man" #55 (Feb. 1973), created by writer-artist Jim Starlin.  

The character has since appeared in over 30 years of Marvel Comics continuity as well as in a dedicated, self-titled series.

Thanos was born on Titan, a moon of the planet Saturn, to 'Mentor' and 'Sui-San'. Due to a genetic quirk, Thanos is born with the 'Deviant' gene and as such resembles the 'Deviants' — the cousin race of the 'Eternals' — more than his own people.

Maturing to adulthood, and via the use of bionics and mysticism, Thanos augments his abilities to become the most powerful of the Titanian-born Eternals, »

Yondu also uses a single curve bow and a quiver of arrows composed of 'yaka', a special sound-sensitive metal found only on Centauri IV. »
