If there was one Marvel Studios movie that was going to connect with the Guardians of the Galaxy movie it would be Thor 2.
We already know Thor 2 has more of a cosmic feel with inclusion of the Nine Realms, and we even just learned that the Guardians of the Galaxy movie will feature a Korbinite, which references Beta Ray Bill, Thor's counterpart.
Now we learn of another connection, and it's a big one.
Clive Russell, who plays Tyr in Thor 2, let a huge bomb drop about a long time rumored charactere that is set for the Guardians.
Russell lets it be known that Benicio del Toro has a scene in Thor 2.
Del Toro is currently rumored to be playing The Collector.
When speaking on the differences between American and British actors, Russell says, "I worked with Benicio del Toro in a scene in which he was meant to be quite angry, and sitting fifteen feet away I couldn't hear a word he was saying, but you look on the screen and he is absolutely there."
Check out the video for more. Clive Russell mentions Benicio del Toro around the 2:15 mark:
