James Gunn Says Joss Whedon Helped To Cast 'Thanos' In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

As James Gunn shares the latest Guardians of the Galaxy production image of Chris Pratt taking flight, video interviews from his first promotional stop in Singapore yesterday have surfaced. Check it out!

After completing work on Guardians of the Galaxy, which now has a shocking PG-13 rating, director James Gunn headed to Singapore to begin his promotional tour for the upcoming Marvel space opera. Tagging along with him was stars Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista, who all took part in live Q&A; during which, James Gunn discussed working with Joss Whedon on the script. More interestingly, the Guardians director confirmed that "we had to work together in casting Thanos because Thanos is gonna appear in stuff that I do, as well as stuff Joss does." Of course, he wouldn't confirm if it was Josh Brolin playing the purple villain, but it's pretty obvious at this point. Whedon having input on who plays Thanos is not at all surprising considering the Mad Titan first appeared in The Avengers, although with a different actor. Anyhow, check out the video interviews below and James Gunn's latest set photo featuring Chris Pratt "taking flight in a Mining Pod."
 





Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits–Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand - with the galaxy’s fate in the balance. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is presented by Marvel Studios and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gilian, Djimon Hounsou with John C. Reilly, Glenn Close as Commander Rael and Benicio del Toro as The Collector. Distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, the film opens August 1, 2014
