Default Re: The Avengers 2! The Official News and Speculation Thread - Part 3

All of that is predicated, of course, on the notion that Thanos *is* the Big Bad in GOTG and TA2, as Jim Starlin said (and I continue to believe). At this point in the rumor and speculation cycle, though, I don't even know if he's going to appear in either one. Would be absolutely stupid if he didn't, but who knows.
I mentioned this before but he recently came out and said he was just speculating and didn't know any more than we did.
