Back in 2012, there was some scuttlebutt about Jim Starlin wanting Schwarzenegger to play Thanos in a future sequel. Sites spread it and it became a whirlwind for about a week or two. Then, it went away. As we returned from the Memorial Day Weekend, talk is starting to recirculate about Arnie playing the Mad Titan in 2 Guardians of the Galaxy movies and Avengers 3.
Here’s the thing about covering any Geek property. You’re going to get hit with tons of stuff about every geek property under the Sun. Hell, I still get people trying to mail Dark Tower stuff.
That being said, I don’t know about this one. There’s reason to say it’s not real and based off prior speculation. But, it feels right for Marvel and what they want to do with the character.
So, I’ll leave it up to you guys.
Here’s my track record on the last three vague but real enough to be true rumors.
(in chronological order oldest to newest)
1) Lucasfilm sold to Disney – New Star Wars Trilogy developed
2) Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon.
3) Roberto Orci taking over Star Trek 3
I’m stumped, guys. I expect to see this story pick up some more steam over the next few days. But, I’m calling it a rumor…leaning towards bullshit.
