According to Unleash The Fanboy on Thursday, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige mentioned that they do have an actor chosen for the Thanos in "Guardians of the Galaxy". For those who seen the post-credit scene starring Damion Poitier as the Mad Titan, fans were probably excited on how deep Feige had plan on taking the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

It is not known at this time who will be playing the most formidable opponent to any and all Marvel characters, James Gunn, director of "Guardians of the Galaxy" had described the motion-capture actor as "the head of the snake". Thanos looks to be appearing in the Gunn film and at this point is only known as the puppet master to it all. Gamora and Nebula have their own "Guardians of the Galaxy Prelude" comic book giving an idea of where their origins lie with the Mad Titan, too.

When asked about the actor to play the role, Feige merely said the following, "There is an actor. I’m not sure we want to announce it yet". The head hancho of the franchise has always been tight-lipped about the MCU but has partaken in teasing dialogue with the "Guardians of the Galaxy" director about the environment and the kind of tools the evil antagonist would be ensconcing himself in. A source from Bloomberg Businessweek sat in with Feige and Gunn in their viewing of preliminary work that entailed things that would be recognizable by any real comic book fan. According to Bloomberg, the character was described as, "an imposing looking character any serious comic book fan would recognize instantly".

There was a debate going back and both between Feige and Gunn about whether they should gravity disks or rockets to power the throne. Also talks of this "imposing characters" shot in a certain frame was a toss up between a close up or a far away shot to divulge a more "imperious" look.

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