Mad Titan abound these days as people are finally picking up what we laid down three months ago. But that’s cool, guys, that’s cool. We at least know for sure now that James Gunn is re-writing something to do with the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ and Thanos.
At this point, I’m surprised we’ve heard from Marvel’s Kevin Feige before we’ve heard from “loose lips put butts in seats” Whedon, but so it passes.
Feige to MTV on Thanos:
“There’s a great track record now about lobbing something in at the last moment to get the audience buzzing. Particularly when it came to Thanos, [we knew] that most people in that audience had no idea who that purple guy was — but they could clearly tell he was important, and knew if they asked the two or three people sitting next to them, somebody would know who he was.”
“Clearly, there’s a purpose to us putting him in the end of that movie. We do have plans for him,” said Feige. “I wouldn’t say we ever feel the need to rush anything one way or the other. We succeeded in Phase One because we stuck to our guns and stuck to the plan. That plan took place over many, many years and it ultimately paid off. I see Phase Two unfolding in the same way of us taking our time, us doing what’s right for each individual movie, while folding in elements that will not only build up to the culmination of Phase Two, but even Phase Three.”
Feige wrapped up by crushing the dreams of actor Damion Poitier, who played Thanos in ‘Avengers’ by saying that they are open to re-casting once they know for sure what the Mad Titan will be doing on screen.
Thanos -> Still around!
I’m not sure this is news Feige, but I’m glad that you’re mentioning Phase Three already, we’d been getting bored trying to root out stuff about Phase Two (this is me being dryly sarcastic).
So – how important is it that Tony Stark has Thor’s DNA from that tiny dagger Loki left on Stark-cum-Avengers Tower at the end of ‘The Avengers?’
