Details on how much of Thanos viewers will see in "Guardians of the Galaxy" and his plans of the Infinity stones have been revealed.

Last week Geektyrant announced that Josh Brolin will provide the voice for Thanos, the villain in "Guardians of the Galaxy." Now Vulture has revealed details on just how much of Thanos viewers will see in "Guardians of the Galaxy" and what his plans are for the Infinity stones.

At the closing credits of 'The Avengers" a silent, smirking supervillain Thanos was introduced. Thanos is one of Marvel's super bad guys, and according to Vulture, his appearance signifies two things for the Marvel Cinematic Universe: 1) At some point in the third "Avengers" movie, Thanos will appear from the cosmic shadows and fight Earth's superheroes. 2) Thanos would also be collecting the Infinity Stones, gems needed to power up his Infinity Gauntlent, in the comicbook series, this is a golden glove that Thanos uses in order to wipe out nearly every superhero and half of the universe


Thanos' appearance in "Avengers" could also affect another Marvel Cinematic Universe in the "Guardians of the Galaxy." Details have been revealed that Thanos will appear in the first act of "Guardians of the Galaxy." Thanos will be communicating remotely via hologram for most of the movie. However Thanos shows up in the purple flesh for a scene that also features Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) and Nebula (Karen Gillan). Ronan and Nebula serve as the primary adversaries for Thanos in "Guardians of the Galaxy." Eventhough Thanos will only appear briefly in "Guardians of the Galaxy," his presence is widely felt: characters often fearfully mention his name and Thanos also has familial ties to Gamora (Zoe Saldana).

"Guardians of the Galaxy" also features another one of the Infinity Stones. Thanos attempts to retrieve these Infinity Stones so he can assemble his powerful Gauntlet. In the comics there are six Infinity Stones that can manipulate Space, Mind, Soul, Reality, Time and Power. A look back at the end credits of "Thor: The Dark World," reveals a mysterious collector ( Benicio del Toro) possessing the first stone in the form of a swirling Aether, in which he said, " One down, five to go." Other two Infinity Stones are in the glowing Tesseract featured in "Captain America" and "The Avengers," which corresponds to the Space Stone. Another would be Loki's blue-hued, do-my-bidding scepter, which may be the Mind Stone. Guardians of the Galaxy" offers the fourth Infinity Stone referred to by Del Toro's character as the Power Stone.
