Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy finally has its Thanos. According to a report from Variety, Josh Brolin has been cast to play the villain in the upcoming feature.
Thanos first appeared in the post-credits scene in “The Avengers,” but is a major villain in the Marvel universe. The character is also expected to appear in one, if not both, of the upcoming “Avengers” sequels.
“We’re definitely tied to ‘Avengers 3,’” director James Gunn recently said.
Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters Aug. 1. The cast includes Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Bradley Cooper.
The film is officially described as follows:
In the far reaches of space, an American pilot named Peter Quill finds himself the object of a manhunt after stealing an orb coveted by the villainous Ronan. In order to evade Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a group of misfits including Gamora, Rocket, Drax the Destroyer, and Groot. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand – with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.
