Last month came word that 'Doctor Who' star Karen Gillan had signed on to star in Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' as one of the film's villains. We've heard that Lee Pace will play The Controller and Benicio Del Toro will play Thanos, so what villain could Gillan be playing? Perhaps one of the reasons why figuring out Gillan's character has been so difficult is because her character may not even have originated in the Marvel universe...
It looks like Marvel may have found its "Mad Titan." As the James Gunn-directed 'Guardians of the Galaxy' continues to bulk up its cast, another lead role has been shelled out, this time to Benicio Del Toro. And based on the preliminary character description, it certainly sounds like he'll be playing Thanos.
