Marvel Studios rep confirms Thanos, Hulkbuster Armor

Posted April 26, 2014 by Sam Liggett in Movies

Kevin Feige of Marvel studios spoke Friday about several new developments in the Marvel movie universe (and he wasn’t the only one). He has confirmed that the role of Thanos has been cast and referred to the character as a matermind in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy saying,

“We have big plans for him over the course of a long long time.”

Feige remajed tight-lipped about who we can expect to see on-screen as Thanos, but was willing to drop a couple more tantalizing tidbits.

J.A.R.V.I.S., everyone’s favorite AI, is rumored to be getting his own body and a new name,The Vision. Feige specifically avoided either confirming or denying the rumor, preferring to say

“If one were to confirm anything about Paul Bettany [the actor who serves as the voice of J.A.R.V.I.S.] and look at the arc and the line of what Paul has done for us, that’s pretty unique and cool and exciting and spins right out of stories we’ve told in the past. “

Avengers: Age of Ultron is confirmed to be the first place we will see Ultron on screen. Played by James Spader, Ultron was called

“Menacing and at the same time endearing and funny and strange and unexpected” by director Joss Whedon. While the film will feature several villains (including Scarlet Witch played by Elizabeth Olsen) Ultron’s will be the primary conflict.

Finally, rounding out a huge news day for Marvel, the studio has released concept art depicting the Hulkbuster armor that will likely be seen in the upcoming Avengers sequel. There are no specifics for what purpose the suit will serve in the film but, as Kevin Feige put it,

“What is the Hulkbuster suit for?”


Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy will be in theaters August 1st of this year while Avengers:Age of Ultron will follow on May 1st 2015
