It looks like we will in some way get some set-up for Thanos and GOTG in a post credits scene because in another thread, a user posted this link of a SPECULATED, but will probably end up being true about the post credit scene of Thor 2 will be about Benicio Del Toro's The Collector getting this sphere item that Kurse has.
Just on a side note: IN MY OWN PERSONAL OPINION, unless anyone else thinks this also, I think Marvel is keeping something under wraps about Benicio Del Toro. I don't think he is playing The Collector, I think he is indeed going to play Thanos, I just think Marvel is using The Collector as a cover up until they announce he is playing Thanos.
Because think about, you wouldn't cast a talent like Benicio Del Toro and just cast him as this Collector character. I think he is Thanos, plus in my opinion he sort of has that face for Thanos and the voice
Usually I would put something like this down to fanboyism but I actually think you are onto something here. Del Toro apparently signed for multiple movies, something like 6 was the number I believe, and I just cant see The Collector being that prominent a character in the MCU, GOTG and then maybe ONE more appearance would be it for TC I think. But Thanos, he could be in 10 MCU movies let alone 6 as he is always coming back to life and thinking up new schemes.
Plus getting someone like BDT to The Collector just seems redundant when someone like Terence Stamp would be a much better fit for the character.
