The worst kept secret in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was identity of the actor playing Thanos. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige admitted years ago Thanos would be in Guardians of the Galaxy, and months before release news broke that Oscar nominee Josh Brolin would play the character. Even though the official announcement wasn’t made until Comic-Con, Feige and director James Gunn both talked at length about the actor before release.
But now that it’s officially official, Brolin himself can talk about it. And the fact he’s promoting Sin City: A Dame to Kill For makes that possible. One outlet in particular got the actor to open up about his new role and he talked about how it got it, what he plans to do with it, how far in advance he knows what’s going on and more. Read the Josh Brolin Thanos quotes below. Read More »

The mad Titan Thanos, a character who is among the biggest of Marvel’s big bads, showed up at the end of The Avengers. That set him as a potential antagonist for, well, just about everyone. Defeating the guy is no small task. But we don’t know when that showdown will happen, or how. We do know that Thanos isn’t likely to have much of a role in Avengers: Age of Ultron. And beyond that? It’s all open to question. But Marvel chief Kevin Feige described the basic idea behind the portrayal of Thanos so far. The key concept to keep in mind here is “Emperor Palpatine.”
Note: there are some Guardians of the Galaxy spoilers below.

Five brand new untitled films weren’t enough. Marvel just made it six. After announcing five untitled movies in 2017, 2018 and 2019, Marvel Studios has just added one more date to the mix.

It’s a question we’ve been asking for several years. “How is Marvel going to use the Hulk outside of The Avengers?’ The studio made a solo film starring Edward Norton some years back, itself a reboot of a less successful solo film by Ang Lee. But most felt the character wasn’t right until Joss Whedon’s version in The Avengers. Now Phase Two is almost over, but we haven’t seen the return of the Hulk, and won’t until the Avengers: Age of Ultron. So what’s next?
Mark Ruffalo, the actor now playing the role, has confirmed he and Marvel Studios have been thinking more about a new Hulk solo movie and Kevin Feige has long said we won’t see a Hulk movie until Phase Three. Ruffalo also added the long standing rumor of a Planet Hulk film was probably not in the cards. “I think you need more Banner,” he said. “The whole thing is just him as Hulk, on a planet, fighting other gladiators.”
Normally that would settle that argument, but this is 2014. J.J. Abrams swore Khan wasn’t in Star Trek Into Darkness. Marion Cotillard promised she wasn’t Talia al Ghul in The Dark Knight Rises. These days actors, filmmakers and publicists sometimes have to lie about major surprises. So is Ruffalo lying about Planet Hulk and Phase Three? Yes and no, says HitFix. The specific answer delves into some pretty big Avengers: Age of Ultron spoilers, which you can read after the jump. Read More »

On the calendar, Guardians of the Galaxy is the Marvel Cinematic Universe film that immediately precedes next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. That might lead some to think the new characters in James Gunn‘s sci-fi action film will appear alongside Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America and the rest in May. Well, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige long ago crushed those hopes, saying Guardians of the Galaxy was almost totally its own story.
This is the Marvel Cinematic Universe, though. It’s all connected. Thanos, who appeared in The Avengers, finally reappears in Guardians and those Infinity Gems that have been carefully placed all across the films, likely do too. Now, the writer and director of Guardians of the Galaxy has just made everything nice and simple. He’s confirmed what we’d all assumed: Guardians of the Galaxy will tie into Avengers 3. Read More »
