While Thanos is never directly named in the following description for a scene being put together for Guardians of the Galaxy during Bloomberg's recent visit to Marvel Studios, common sense says that's exactly who we're talking about here! Not only does this give us an idea about the collaboration between Kevin Feige and the directors working on the movies he produces, but this serves as an interesting tease as to what we should expect from Thanos' presence in the movie later this year. Seeing his floating throne should also prove to be a real treat for longtime fans...
Gunn freezes a frame of an imposing-looking villain any serious comic book fan would recognize instantly. He sits on a rocket-powered throne. Feige sees something on the screen that he doesn’t like. The evildoer needs to be farther away in the frame so he looks more imperious, he says.
“I don’t know,” says Gunn. “I think it’s going to look cool, man.”
“You just don’t want him to feel petty in that way,” Feige says. “I think it’s a fine line.”
“How do you think it comes off as petty here?” Gunn says.
“He’s so damn close,” Feige says.
“Yeah,” concedes Gunn. “I think I’m going to have him floating in space.”
Feige is concerned about the throne, too. He points at the base. “Those don’t need to be rockets,” he says. “Maybe gravity disks?” Feige says he’ll check back later.
In the hallway he extracts a pledge not to name the bad guy. “That could not be a bigger spoiler,” Feige says.
The report adds that the success of Guardians of the Galaxy, "could potentially spin off members of the Guardians of the Galaxy, which include Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Groot, and Rocket Raccoon, in their own features." This is a particularly interesting proposition, but one which could arguably work depending on how well received the movie is when it's released in August. A Star-Lord solo feature seems likely based on the fact that he's starred in his own comic book series, while the appeal of a Rocket Raccoon/Groot spin-off is hard to deny! What do you guys think?
