A better look at Thanos in James Gunn's 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

According to Cinema Blend on Thursday, it appears evil genius and genocidal Mad Titan Thanos is becoming more apparent in "Guardians of the Galaxy." The Infinity Gauntlet seeking nihilist is known in the comic books as bound and determined to rule the galaxy in order to please Mistress Death. Now, a picture from Instagram revealed the Mad Titan himself.

Actor Josh Brolin had made an appearance along with the cast of the "Avengers: Age of Ultron" as he donned the Hasbro toy Gauntlet as he held it high. Rumors had been going around online about him playing the role of Thanos and shows up as uncredited on IMDB for the role.

Thanos was last seen and played by actor Damion Poitier as he turned and grinned at the screen for all to see at the end of Joss Whedon's film in an event that occurred after the Battle of New York where The Avengers took on the Chitauri race as they invaded Earth. Of course, the Tesseract was the very first sighting of one of the six infinity gems lodged inside. Later, in "Thor: The Dark World" the second gem is seen contained and "collected" by The Collector as played by Benecio del Toro.

Now, Thanos is seen as quite a sizable character sitting in his throne. In the past, there was recorded a back and forth dialogue between Gunn and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige as they went about describing what seemed to be the throne of Thanos. In actuality, it would mostly be only comic book enthusiasts that would understand the visual description, but it seems rather apparent in the Instagram photo and a recent backside shot of said floating piece of furniture as an ABC promotion starring Karen Gillan, who plays Thanos' lackey Nebula, in the new series "Selfie."

"Guardians of the Galaxy" opens in theaters tomorrow Aug. 1.
