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.
