Awesome: Benicio del Toro Joins Guardians of the Galaxy and The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Benicio del Toro

Holy Moly!

Mike Fleming at Deadline Hollywood:

Benicio Del Toro has joined the killer cast of the James Gunn-directed Marvel Studios franchise launcher Guardians Of The Galaxy. 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.

So let’s the speculation begin: who do you think he’s going to be? Could he be Thanos? Or Rocket Racoon? Or someone out of left field?

Either way, Marvel keeps adding more talent to its universe and that’s a good thing. I can’t think of a franchise that I am more excited to see more films from, not Bond or Star Wars or anything.
