Josh Brolin, Thanos In 'Guardians Of The Galaxy

Blah, blah, blah, blah "Ant-Man." While Marvel has yet to resolve that issue, they're hoping to refocus attention on their summer blockbuster "Guardians Of The Galaxy," and what better way to do that than to show off the much talked about villain Thanos?

And indeed, they've done just that with a new TV spot showing more footage from the film. As you know Josh Brolin got tapped to play Thanos in the film, and it's more than just a cameo. *SPOLIERS AHEAD* As reported earlier this week, the character will appear in the opening act of James Gunn's film, and be a presence through the movie, essentially acting as the puppet master for Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) and Nebula (Karen Gillan). And it's widely speculated he's going to main bad dude in "The Avengers 3" (presumably after he completes his Infinity Gauntlet).

Anyway, we'll see if 'Guardians' can make waves on August 1st. Watch below and also check out this pretty spectacular fan-made "Star Wars" inspired poster by Matt Ferguson.
