Probably most of you caught Guardians of the Galaxy already by now... And probably heard of the official casting of actor Josh Brolin as the big intergalactic baddy of the Marvel Cosmic Universe himself, Thanos the Mad Titan.
Following that big SDCC '14 Marvel Studios' panel announcement that pretty much cemented his new role in an Epic way, the American Gangster and Men In Black III star has appeared in GotG as a "presence" that builds up to something bigger down the line in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The character first appeared in Joss Whedon's "The Avengers" in 2012, but in a cameo appearance in the film's mid-credits scene, and was played by actor Damion Poitier.
When the Mad Titans next appearance will be is anyone's guess, but Marvel Studios' producer Kevin Feige did say he could be the villain for the third Avengers film, since Ultron will be the focus of the next MCU movie slated for May 2015 with Avengers: Age of Ultron. Only time will tell for sure.
