The Mad Titan known as Thanos made his presence known during the mid-credit scene of The Avengers movie.
With a smile, Thanos was revealed to be the villain behind the Chitauri invasion upon the Earth.
It's long since been rumored and even hinted upon by Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige that the Mad Titan would be appearing in the 2014 Guardians of the Galaxy movie.
Feige has all but said he is in the movie.
Now we learn that not only will Thanos be featured in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie — but The Avengers 2 as well.
We previously reported that Jim Starlin was in talks with Marvel about "something," with it theorized that it was over the rights to Thanos.
Now, a Cosmic Book News regular, Armand Rock, has confirmed through Jim Starlin that Thanos will be in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie and The Avengers 2.
Armand Rock attended the recent Montreal Comic-Con and spoke with Jim Starlin who said that the deal is already in place. Jim Starlin even mentioned that the Mad Titan will appear in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie in 2014 and The Avengers 2 in 2015.
The news is not that surprising, as most assumed Thanos would go on to become the Avengers major villain in The Avengers 2, but what it may reveal is that there might be another villain in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie.
The Avengers 2 assembles May 1, 2015 with Iron Man 3 on May 3, 2013, Thor: The Dark World on November 8, 2013, Captain America: Winter Soldier on April 4, 2014, and the Guardians of the Galaxy movie on August 1, 2014.
