The Controller A Villain In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY?
In keeping with Latino Review’s latest scoop, a supervillain for Marvel Studios' forthcoming space epic, Guardians of the Galaxy, has been revealed to have a connection with the Mad Titan Thanos.
The latest Exclusive from Latino Review once again concerns Marvel Studios’ 2014 much-anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy adaptation. With the James Gunn-directed space epic in its casting stage, the Latino outlet has it “on good authority” that the supervillain known as Basil Sandhurst, aliased The Controller, will be one of the characters who’ll take on the interstellar superteam, but that’s not all. “I’m told that The Controller will act as Thanos’ main henchman and ambassador.” While the Mad Titan’s cameo in Marvel’s The Avengers’ mid-credits stinger has fueled speculation that Thanos will appear in Joss Whedon’s 2015 sequel in addition to Guardians of the Galaxy, Latino Review suggests the purple supervillain’s inclusion is only “a strong possibility.”
Anyhow, as LR and Wikipedia note, The Controller designed his armored exoskeleton, which is micro-surgically attached to his body from head to toe and grants him mobility, as well as superhuman strength and endurance. He uses “slave discs” to control others, using the micro-circuitry in his helmet to drain cerebral energy from his victims to power his exoskeleton and magnify its strength and duplicate his victim’s abilities. In the comics, Thanos released The Controller from prison, upgraded his technology and promised him rulership of Earth. What do you think?
