The Problem With Bringing Thanos Into 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

|If there’s one thing that seems slightly off in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, it’s the presence of Josh Brolin’s Thanos. He doesn’t really accomplish anything in the movie, beyond reminding viewers that he exists, and he risks making Ronan the Accuser look like little more than a minion by his very presence. It turns out, the movie’s co-writer and director, James Gunn, had exactly the same concerns. In an interview, Gunn said, "You’re setting up this gigantic character that, in one way, isn’t really a part of your movie. His presence doesn’t really serve being in Guardians, and having Thanos be in that scene was more helpful to the Marvel universe than it was to Guardians of the Galaxy. I always wanted to have Thanos in there, but from a structural standpoint, you don’t need him.”
