[Mike Fleming at Deadline Hollywood](http://www.deadline.com/2013/06/benicio-del-toro-takes-lead-role-in-marvels-guardians-of-the-galaxy/):
> 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.
