Guardians Of The Galaxy director James Gunn touches briefly on the influence of Joss Whedon...

Big things are expected of the character of Thanos in future Marvel projects, following his post-credits appearance at the end of The Avengers in 2012. Thanos is set to turn up next in James Gunn's incoming Guardians Of The Galaxy, and the director - on the promotional tour for the film - has revealed that he wasn't the only one involved in casting the character.

"We had to work together in casting Thanos", he admitted, revealing that Joss Whedon was involved in the decision too. Whedon, currently directing Avengers: Age Of Ultron, had a hand in the Guardians Of The Galaxy screenplay too. And Gunn confirmed that "Thanos is gonna appear in stuff that I do, as well as stuff that Joss does".

All common sense, then. And the majority of roads in the land of Marvel movies seem to stop off at Joss Whedon's cafe somewhere along the line...
