“Well, I decided I was going to Google Alert myself on Thanos, so I basically don’t know anything more than anyone else does. But I do get Google Alerts, and this past week Joss Whedon did an interview that said he was just going to have…apparently Thanos plays sort of a good role inside the Guardians, he has a minor role, like he’s the backup players in Avengers 2, and he’s going to at least be in Avengers 3. So they look like they are going to try to milk him for everything he’s worth, as long as they can. So I know he’s going to be in at least three movies.”
“Marvel and I worked out an agreement this sort of thing. When the first Avengers movie came out, I had to go pay for a ticket like everybody else, because I didn’t have any kind of working relationship with Marvel. Squawked a little bit in the press about that. Marvel looked into certain things, and for about six months we talked things over, and we finally came to an agreement. They’re doing stuff with him in the movies, and I’m going to come back and do a little bit of work for Marvel. Working on a job that I wrote and now I’m penciling. I can’t say who the character is I’m penciling. I’ll tell you it’s not Speedball. They don’t want me saying anything more than I’m doing some work for them right now.”
Jim then spoke about a 'secret' project he is working on, set to be released next year.
“It will be out some time next year. Early next year I imagine, maybe in time for the Guardians movie. Not that I’m saying there’s anything that would tie into the Guardians movie. Don’t get me in trouble with the contract.”
