We’ve known for some time that Thanos will have an apperance in Marvel’s next film, ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy‘. After the mysterious villain popped up at the end of the credits for ‘The Avengers,’ fans have been wanting to see more of him on screen. While just a few days ago we found out that Josh Brolin (‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For‘,’Oldboy’) will be voicing this epic villain, today we’ve finally found out a little about what he’ll be doing in the next movie.

Obviously some spoilers are going to follow here but that should be obvious. Last chance to turn back!

Apparently sources close to the movie have Thanos not making a small mid-credit cameo as he did in ‘The Avengers’. In James Gunn’s film Thanos will have an active role in the first act of the film though will mainly be showing up as a hologram throughout the rest of the film. In the movie he’ll be playing opposite Lee Pace‘s role of Ronan The Accuser and Karen Gillan’s Nebula. While he will be on screen with both of them, it’ll largely be a tease as he is said to be staying mostly in the shadows.

Of course, for those who want to know more about Thanos we should get some details this time around. While he won’t be heavily shown on screen, he will be brought up quite a bit as other characters reference him often in the film and he has familial ties to Gamora (Zoe Saldana). So while he will be seen both in person and hologram he still isn’t the main villain in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy, however, we’ll be learning quite a bit more about his cinematic version.

After ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, we in theory won’t be seeing much more from the character for a bit. There is a rumor he will pop up in ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron‘ and while I wouldn’t put them past putting him in an end-credit scene again, the source that has been sharing details says that after the next film he “will likely recede back into the shadows for a bit.” This isn’t too surprising as Thanos and Ultron haven’t ever really been known to work together against The Avengers. Also, it seems doubtful that The Mad Titan would somehow be implicated in Ultron’s creation.

Do you think we’ll be seeing more of Thanos anywhere else in the near future? Are you excited we’ll be getting more of him on screen soon? Share your thoughts below true believers!
