So, this has been out for a while now, but Damion Poitier was the dude who played Thanos at the end of the Avengers. If the character is to be featured more prominently in GotG, is it likely for him to get replaced with a bigger name or will they decide to keep him (for the mocap at least)?

I think they should keep him on, he has a sort of Thonos-y look about him, if that's possible.

And I would be shocked if every avengers movie stays on earth. Shocked.

Thanos is not an Earth character. He operates on a universal scale. If him as the villain means him attacking Earth, (which most likely wont happen anyway), it would not do the character justice, at all.

Why would you be shocked? I honestly can't imagine Captain America in space in the movieverse. They're Earth's Mightiest Heroes for God's sake.

It's not like I'm against it, it's just not something I see as realistically happening.

Because its Thanos. Like I said, he operates on such a huge scale, Earth WILL NOT be the only threat when he is the primary villain. It won't.

Thanos' plans operate on such a huge scale, with all the build up that he has going for him in the universe, I don't see his big climax being an attack on Earth with the infinity gauntlet. do you know anything about Thanos?

I can totally see them setting it up where the Avengers, aka Earth's Mightiest Heroes are the only ones capable of saving the Universe from Thanos.

Read the Infinity Gauntlet Saga. You know where Captain America was in that?

in space.

I completely expect Thanos' climax in a movie to involve much bigger stakes than just the Earth, and if Joss Whedon sticks around to direct, he won't give that character the shaft because it may seem weird to see Captain America in space.

Oh I know what you are saying, I get what you mean, I am just the opposite, Earth being what is at stake when Thanos' climax in the movie verse happens, I don't see it realistically happening, he operates on such a big scale, there is no way I can see them limiting him just to an attack on Earth.

Not after him more than likely appearing in Guardians of the Galaxy, seeing the infinity gauntlet in Thor, and The Other saying, the universe will be his.

Not to mention the whole nature of his character

I agree with everything you're saying but it's just hard for me to imagine this Avengers team fighting the bad guy in space. I mean, it's a lot more likely that Thanos comes to Earth than The Avengers getting in a space ship to a distant planet somewhere. Plus you have to consider that half the team are regular humans and in Cap's case superhuman but can't breathe in space.

Of course they can always go to a planet where they can breathe and such....I'm actually coming around on this idea lol.

yeah haha. Doesn't have to be literally IN SPACE. I mean, it WILL take place on Earth, but not JUST on earth, and I think his scale will be much bigger than the earth

At least one Avenger has already gone into space in the first film. And if you buy into the concept that Thor is really an alien from another planet, then that's *two* Avengers in Space already.

....Maybe because well over half of all Avenger stories have taken place on other planets and in other dimensions and other timescapes....? Not that hard to figure out....Avengers has always been about otherworldly adventures.

In the comics yeah. I'm just saying, it would be harder to pull off on film. Not impossible, just harder.

Also, wouldn't sending the Avengers into space kind of undermine the whole point of the Guardians?

Im hoping they save Thanos for Avengers 3.... He is the ultimate Avenger villain, and by Avengers 3, there will probably be a few more additions to the squad, and a few other superheroes one in the MCU, so when they take on Thanos, you have GOTG, The Avengers, and maybe Heroes for Hire or even the Defenders... Or just other heroes or SHIELD agents that's not part of the Avengers...

And hopefully we get the military of the world trying to bomb the ***** out of Thanos

It will be interesting to see how Thanos figures in here based off his presence in Avengers and how it leads into Avengers.

I mean . . . one imagines the Guardians and Avengers won't interact in an Avengers sequel. I mean . . . that would be way too many characters. The Guardians aren't going to be Avengers you know? So chances are all the stories will be kept separate.

But if the expectation is that Thanos will be a future Avengers movie villain, doesn't that basically mean the Guardians will have to fail?

Not if Thanos is used as a pseudoally or a behind-the-scenes figure in their movie.

But won't the movie want to formally introduce Thanos?

He can be formally introduced just as easily as an ally or a behind-the-scenes mover whom the Guardians don't directly interact with (save for maybe Gamora).

Is it just me or does this guy look like a photoshop mash-up of Chris Tucker and Michael Vick?

I like the idea of Thanos "working with" the Guardians, but actually manipulating them into doing his dirty work while he steals an Infinity Gem right out from under their noses. That'd be a great lead-in to TA2.

Earth is beneath Thanos. The only way he would come here is to destroy us, not to invade us.

And if he has the Infinity Gauntlet then he doesn't have to show up on Earth in person. He can do his killing from the comfort of his own home.
