Yea, I think it is inevitable that he'll make it onto the big screen.

When is the question though. I hope it's in the first movie, I don't think i can handle knowing Thanos will appear, but having to wait another 5 years for it to happen!

Now the question is, how much is he in the movie and what does this setup? Maybe the Guardians of the Galaxy movie is a direct spin-off?

I'm thinking it's just a set up. Hopefully with a couple of juicy scenes near the end.

Thing with Thanos is, he doesn't have to necessarily be saved for the Avengers sequel, he could be in the Thor sequel. He and Odin have a bit of history with each other in the comics.

Could be. His presence in space would be akin to having a Dr. Doom or Magneto running around for all cosmic-based characters (Thor, Guardians, etc.). It would also be nice to get Captain Marvel and Warlock out there soon, and build to an Infinity Gauntlet Avengers film.

Well, judging by the Gauntlet, he and Odin have a history with each other in the films too.

Well yea exactly. Maybe Thanos turns up in Avengers to snatch the Cosmic Cube, give him a bit more oomph to take on Odin for the Gauntlet in Thor 2, then in Avengers 2 we get the Infinity Gauntlet story.

I can't see Thanos being a one and done villain. He should be like the Darth Vader of these films.

I agree. There's so many great stories to mine. Obviously stuff like The Thanos Imperative demands more groundwork than they could manage for now, but The Life of Captain Marvel, Warlock Saga and Infinity Gauntlet are totally doable.

Actually, if they manage to sneak Captain Marvel into the Avengers movie, they're already slowly moving into The Life of Captain Marvel.

Yea, I think the cosmic side of things is definitely on the cards.

Kevin Feige mentioned a while back that they want to do an epic cosmic saga.

Yes and he mentioned the current incarnation of Guardians of the Galaxy. If you look at what he's said, confirmed and the rumors floating around... they're looking to introduce the following sooner or later:

Thanos (confirmed by Thor)
Guardians of the Galaxy 2008 version (confirmed by Feige)
The Inhumans (confirmed in development)
Skrulls (rumored in Avengers, nearly confirmed)
Warlock (rumored, but part of 2008 Guardians)
Kree (rumored)
Captain Marvel (rumored)
Drax the Destroyer (rumored)
Moondragon (rumored, but almost confirmed by Scarlet J.)
Nova (rumored)

By Pietro from Daily Blam, just before he left **************.com and they went nuts on him (see "giant douche" re-edit from mature web editor). Pietro can be good on scoops at times and this is from back during Comic-Con.

http://www.**************.com/fansit.../news/?a=20758

Since then, an old interview with ScarJo seemingly confirmed she had discussed Moondragon with Marvel Studios. Also, the studio has officially gone out to writers for an Inhumans movie.

This all makes a lot of sense though, because Moondragon and Drax are part of the modern Guardians of the Galaxy that Kevin Fiege has been referencing often.

The thought of seeing Thanos in the Avengers movie is really exciting, wonder how much of him we'll see?

Neither of these things are confirmed to be in development. Inhumans is (as of now) just a pitch that Marvel shopped around to some writers, and Guardians of the Galaxy was something that Feige mentioned -- once -- as a property that he could see making into a film.

Between The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Cap and Thor sequels, Ant-Man, Runaways, Iron Fist, Dr. Strange, and Black Panther (all in the works in some form or another), I think Marvel is pretty much set for the next several years. So if Thanos shows up anywhere, my bets are on Thor 2, Avengers 2, or maybe even Dr. Strange.

Going out to writers for a project means it's in development.

It happened a while ago that Scarlett Johansson was namedropping other Marvel characters she was in talks to play and one of them was "Moon____;" something she couldn't quite remember. Since we're obviously not talking Moon Knight, that pretty much leaves Moondragon. The question that follows is: why on earth would a character like Moondragon even come up in a conversation with Marvel at this point?

http://www.**************.com/fansit.../news/?a=20758
Pietro posted this some time ago: slivers of info from, he claims, an anonymous source at Marvel:
It initially sounds like a random assortment, and I'd guess this was a guy who got to flip through a big pile of pictures and notes that only vaguely suggested where the movies might be going.
Moondragon's mentioned in the same breath as Drax the Destroyer. Higher up, Adam Warlock. These are all members of the Infinity Watch, a group that was formed after the first Infinity Gauntlet story, dedicated to preventing the reassembly of the Infinity Gems. If you're going into Jim Starlin/Thanos territory, it completely makes sense that you would think about using these characters. What's more, all three of these characters have been part of the recent Guardians of the Galaxy relaunch.

Arad mentioned Dr. Strange, Nick Fury, Power Pack, Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers as prime movie properties.
Arad namedropped 'em too, so it sounds like it was something they were kicking around even back when he was still at Marvel.

I'm kinda sceptical about those things as movies.... Do they have the steam to be solo films? They don't have any character recognition factor outside of the fans. Wouldn't it be smarter to introduce them in a cosmis character film, like Nova or even Thor or something?

Honestly? I think Guardians stories have more to mine than Iron Man does. Once they do Mandarin, Marvel Studios will have exploited about 4/5 of what widely acknowledged good stories exist for Tony Stark. If you do a team book that allows for anything Marvel still owns and is set in space, then they've got decades of stuff. Kirby, Starlin, Englehart, Gerber, Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning... It would be like having an X-Men type franchise set in the universe of Star Trek!

The same could be said for Blade, who was far more obscure than Warlock before the Snipes film. The same could be said for original screenplays. All you're really doing is offering an original sci-fi property spun out of The Avengers and with the popular Marvel brand attached. It's a win-win situation when you know Marvel can't rely on the same "super people wrestling each other in NY" stories forever. Feige knows that too and that's why he's jonesing to get into the space and supernatural stuff asap.

It looks like that's exactly what they're planning to do.

Characters being recognizable isn't that important.

You make the character recognizable by making a great film about them.

Yeah, i'm not saying it wouldn't be a good film, just potentially quite risky to introduce them all in a film, cold, without any introduction. If that's what they're doing, then cool. And I agree, there is a lot of stuff to mine there AND make a really unique film, really, it would be the first, dramatic step by Marvel and stepping outside of the known character area. Even c listers like Iron Fist etc have more of a clear, familiar hook to them tht wouldn't be too risky, but this would be. They'd need to be smart about it.

I totally get what you're saying. Accessibility of concept. Lucky for us, these franchises aren't being run Warner or Fox. :-)

Yeah, I do have faith in Marvel Studios, I just worry with each success they make that they might start to feel a little too invincible. I hope they don't stop approaching these things with the same level of smart caution.

They might have learned their lessons from Iron Man 2. Commercially a success, almost critically panned.

No, most of its critics were positive, it actually had very good reviews.

Yea Iron Man 2 wasn't critically panned. I'd say the reaction was mixed, at worst.

It definitely didn't live up to the first one though.
