Thanos 'Will Feature In Avengers Sequel'
Cosmic villain confirmed by creator to be signed-up for next Avengers movie...
The character of Thanos will feature in the sequel to The Avengers, it has been reported.
According to Cosmic Book News, the character's creator Jim Starlin confirmed from Montreal Comic-Con that he has signed a deal for Thanos to appear in both Avengers 2 and another forthcoming Marvel Studios film called Guardians Of The Galaxy.
Starlin had earlier threatened Marvel with legal action over its use of his creations Thanos and the "Infinity Gauntlet" without approval in the first Avengers movie and in Thor.
The Thanos character - aka the "Mad Titan" - is a villainous mutant who lives on the moon Titan. He made a mid-credits appearance in the original Avengers movie.
Avengers 2 will be released in May 2015, while Guardians Of The Galaxy will be out in August 2014.
Some fans have been unhappy about the UK DVD release of The Avengers this week.
