Marvel’s Guardians OF THE GALAXY sequel, put so well as VOL.2, will hit theatres next May and director James Gunn is already well into putting together the film with the cast returning for their second outing.
Looks like one character isn’t coming back for the sequel as villain Thanos is left in the dust for VOL.2. Gunn has already been suggesting the story wouldn’t focus on Thanos, even saying we’ll be going for a different direction for the sequel, but now we have official confirmation the director won’t be including Josh Brolin’s Thanos.
“No. He’s not in the film.” Gunn also added, “There’s no sadness. I chose the story to tell in Vol. 2 because it’s the story I wanted to tell! It just happens not to include Thanos. And I’ve answered honestly because I’ve answered it before.”
This isn’t terrible news, despite Thanos finally getting some good screen inclusion in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, but Brolin’s villain will probably be featuring instead more for AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR, considering the film will be mainly about him gaining the remaining infinity stones and fighting the AVENGERS themselves.
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY hits theatres May 5, 2017.
