Thanos Header Image

Last night, Guardians of the Galaxy finally premiered on theater screens after years of anticipation and some camera-happy moviegoers were ready to take quick snaps of the action. One person got a shot and quickly uploaded it to Instagram of Thanos, one of the most feared villains in the Marvel Universe who made his movie debut with a brief profile shot in 2012’s The Avengers, but was played in full for a few scenes in Guardians by Josh Brolin.

Thus, Marvel Studios was compelled to release a higher-quality image of the Mad Titan sitting atop his rocket-powered throne during his first full appearance. (A snippet of this scene was also included near the end of the Comic-Con sizzle reel that Marvel also released today.)

If you haven’t seen Guardians yet and would prefer not to have Thanos’ CGI-rendered visage spoiled then you might want to skip the remainder of this article. For the rest of you, here it is….

Rumor Patrol: Josh Brolin Cast As Thanos In ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’

Thanos Avengers Image

From the post-credit scene in The Avengers, we knew that Thanos was the one who gave Loki the tools he needed to try to rule Earth. Of course, all did not go as planned, but based on the that tease alone, challenging the Avengers would mean Thanos would be able to court his true love, Death, or at least the physical embodiment of Death. But the plan was to use Thanos in upcoming films, leading up to him being a villain in an Avengers film of his own.

When it was confirmed that Thanos won’t be in Avengers: Age Of Ultron, we immediately knew that he was going to be a villain in Avengers 3. At first we thought The Avengers would mean the last time we would see Thanos, but James Gunn then revealed that the character would appear as a villain in Guardians of the Galaxy – although it is not as big as Ronan the Accuser. And for a long time we didn’t know who would play him, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said he has already cast.

Now a new rumor has surfaced revealing who will be playing as the Mad Titan. Hit the jump to read all about who is rumored to play Thanos.

Thanos Rising #1

The teaser ending of Marvel’s The Avengers featuring the cosmic entity known as Thanos got many Marvel Comics fans excited, to put it mildly. If you’re new to the scene or just never followed the character before, now is your chance to learn who he is and what sort of threat he could be posing in both comic book and film form.

Thanos spent most of his time loitering in cosmic-related books such as Fantastic Four or the various incarnations of Silver Surfer and sometimes visiting the X world. Marvel is launching a new limited series as part of Marvel NOW! titled Thanos Rising which promises to give us the skinny on one ticked off bad guy. The creative team of writer Jason Aaron (Thor: God Of Thunder) and artist Simone Bianchi (Wolverine) have been tasked with telling this epic story in just five issues.

Check out the cover for Thanos Rising #1 here below.

Thanos Rising Banner

I don’t know if you saw a little film last year called The Avengers. I know it flew under a lot of people’s radars, so I’m not surprised if you missed it. If you were one of the few people who went to see The Avengers and you stuck through the credits you got a quick shot of Thanos, one of the major bad guys in the Marvel Universe. Well, Marvel comics has been pushing Thanos to the forefront ever since the movie came out with a big role in the first arc of Avengers Assemble, and now he’s getting a limited series detailing his origin titled Thanos Rising. The series comes out in April and features the writing talent of Jason Aaron (Wolverine and the X-Men, Astonishing Thor) and art by Simone Bianchi (Wolverine, Shining Knight).

This will be the first time Aaron and Bianchi have worked together, so we get arguably Marvel’s best writer teaming up with a fantastic artist with a beautiful painted style. Add in a big time character and you get one exciting mini-series. Check out the cover for the first issue of Thanos Rising below and make sure you pre-order this series from whatever source you get your comics from.
