Benicio Del Toro for Guardians of the Galaxy

But which role?

By Robert T. Trate     June 04, 2013

Deadline has broken the news that Benicio Del Toro has also been cast in Guardians of the Galaxy. The cast has really boomed over the past week with recent additions including Glenn Close, Karen Gillan, and probably John C. Reilly. Del Toro’s casting is interesting because they haven’t announced yet who he will play. Rocket Raccoon? Groot? Thanos? 

Deadline reported: “They are keeping his role under wraps, but he’s playing a character that is built to be part of future Marvel films, which means he has signed a deal with options that put him into multiple movies”.

I highly doubt that Benicio Del Toro is going to play a talking raccoon or a talking tree. My money is on Thanos. I’m early awaiting the email (official press announcement) from Walt Disney and Marvel Studios for the official word on who is playing what and when we will finally see some images. All I do know is that this year, at Comic Con, the Guardians will assemble!

 I've heard the Thanos rumor...not sure if I buy it, but it would certainly be an interesting choice.  I'm kind of pissed with Del Toro right the same article I heard the Thanos rumor in, it said that he turned down the role of John Harrison in "Star Trek Into Darkness"...

They sure are assembling a decent cast here; can they write a good script and execute that on the big screen?  This could be epic, especially if they keep away from earth which was one of the big downfalls of GL.

Well considering the so, so b.o. of Into darkness maybe he made the right choice after all. Marvel/Disney projects are nova hot (pun intended) right now. Star Trek just isn't.

As far as what role he's playing I don't see him buried under a ton of make up/CGI which would be required to play Thanos. 

Let the speculation begin...

DarthBob your killing me with your Avatar. Everytime I come on this site to post a comment I get mesmerized by your avatars mammaries.

If not Thanos maybe he is playing Adam Warlock.

DarthBob 6/4/2013 6:20:48 AM

I'm not thinking Thanos either; I'd guess Adam Warlock or Jack Flag without knowing who owns the rights to those characters.

I just hope that Robert Trate was able to post this fast enough that some visitors to this site don't have another canniption fit that it was a couple hours late.  Holy #%$&-all.

 Yeah, DarthBob, I agree with youuuuu...... boobs.

Since I know nothing of the comic anything they are doing is fine with me.

 I read that article too Caveman... but I think it said they couldn't work out a deal (he probably wanted an arse load of ca$h).


I just don't picture him as Thanos  - i guess because everytime i see him i think Fenster from The Usual Suspects - but like others on here i can see him as Adam Warlock, keeper of the soul gem.

CaptAmerica04 do you mean like the almost week old Winter Soldier photos or Keaton in Birdman story? Nah this one here made it within a day. Let's celebrate why don't we. If you don't bring it up no one else may either

I'm just going to guess Korvac but by the time his role is announced I'll probably have guessed every possible role :)

This cast is rounding out nicely. I have high hopes for this, very high
