The upcoming Marvel film Guardians of the Galaxy has been creating a lot of excitement. The latest trailer shows a massive battle taking place with the Guardians right in the thick of things. The space soap opera has a group of unlikely heroes facing impossible odds and pursuing a suicide mission to save the galaxy. At the heart of the things seems to the ultimate villain Thanos. Here are a few of the possible plots that involve Thanos.
Thanos may be in the background of various events pulling the strings. This seemed to be the operating feature of his character in the Avengers. It may be repeated in the Guardians of the Galaxy. In the comics, Thanos was the father of another character in the Guardians movie, Gamora was his daughter. Gamora is played by Zoe Saldana and is seen in several scenes in both trailers.
Pursuit of Infinity Stones
The ultimate goal of Thanos is to possess all of the Infinity Stones and regain the Infinity Gauntlet. Two Infinity Stones have appeared in Marvel movies with the gauntlet appearing in Odin’s trophy room in the first Thor movie. There could be a third Infinity Stone revealed in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Thanos will not stop until he gains access to all of the stones and then uses them to rule the galaxy. This could be a plot building for the third Avengers movie.
Another possible plot is that Thanos used the Kree to start a war that allowed him to gain control of the Comic Cube. The cube appears to be the Tesseract from the previous Marvel movies. Thanos sues the Cosmic Cube to attempt to destroy the sun and eliminate earth’s entire solar system. The Kree war could be one of the plots that the Guardians have to stop in the upcoming movie.
It would seem that the upcoming movie plots would include some sort of attempt by Thanos to gain control of the Infinity Stones and begin an insane quest to kill in the name of Death. The upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy may shed some more light on this matter. Marvel movie fans will have to wait just a little longer to find out the details of the film. The Guardians of the Galaxy is set to arrive in theaters in August, 2014 and role of Thanos will finally be revealed.
