Re: The Avengers 2! The Official News and Speculation Thread
I think Thanos will continue to have an ominous presence in future Marvel films. He'll be the "Emperor" so to speak.
The first film did well to build him up as a threat, and we didn't even see him until the credits. I think the best thing to do is carry on hinting at this powerful being behind the scenes, then when he does finally turn up in all his glory, it's a true "holy ****" moment and by then everyone who has been along for the Marvel ride will know and understand what all the fuss is about.
