Benicio Del Toro joins the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy! Is he playing Thanos?

June 3rd, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

According to Deadline the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy is getting another lead actor in Benicio Del Toro. Del Toro’s role is being kept under wraps by Marvel, but the actor has signed a multi-picture deal. The role is as Deadline puts it: “a character that is built to be part of future Marvel films.”

What do you think maybe he’s the voice of Rocket Raccoon or playing the Mad Titan Thanos? The way they phrased that statement leads me to believe Thanos.

Guardians of the Galaxy features an unlikely cast of characters who must team up in order to defeat a cosmic force of epic proportions.

The James Gunn directed film also stars Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Michael Rooker, Ophelia Lovibond, Lee Pace, Glenn Close and Karen Gillan.

The Guardians of the Galaxy is set for an August 1st, 2014 release!
