Kevin Feige confirms Thanos will appear in Guardians Of The Galaxy: Comic-Con 2013

While most of the post-Comic-Con talk has revolved around the announcement of Ultron in The Avengers 2 , Marvel’s other super-villain, Thanos, has slightly gone under the radar.

However, Kevin Feige conducted a quick interview with IGN after Marvel’s Hall H panel, and confirmed that Thanos would be appearing in Guardians Of The Galaxy .

“I think somebody on the Guardians panel let loose that Thanos is a part of the movie, which he is,” revealed Feige. “Thanos plays a part in Guardians , as the mastermind.”

“He very much exists on nearly another plane from any of the other characters,” continued Feige, “and we have big plans for him over a long long time.”

Perhaps a slow-build until he is confirmed as the villain of The Avengers 3? We're already looking forward to Comic-Con 2014!

Directed by James Gunn and co-starring Chris Pratt, Benicio del Toro and Glenn Close, Guardians Of The Galaxy will open in the UK on 1 August 2014.
