We have super fresh casting news from Marvel! It is confirmed that Josh Brolin will be playing the big bad Thanos in Marvel's upcoming film Guardians of the Galaxy. Thanos has already appeared in the after credits scene of The Avengers. It is suspected that Thanos will also play a major role in Avengers: Age of Ultron and/or Avengers 3.
Up until now it was unknown if Thanos would, for sure, be appearing in Guardians of the Galaxy but we know that in the comic book lore Gamora, played by Zoe Saldana in the upcoming flick, is the daughter of Thanos, however, many assumed that the lore would be altered. Does this mean they will not change that detail? How large of a role will Thanos play in the film? We can only wait and see.
