It's not Thanos...
Kevin Feige has revealed which of the villains in Guardians of the Galaxy is the main villain...and it's not Thanos. The Marvel Studios CEO spoke with Empire and revealed that the main adversary in the film will be Ronan the Accuser, played by Lee Pace (The Hobbit).
"Ronan The Accuser is very much the main bad guy," Feige said. "And Thanos is lurking above it all. You will learn more about Thanos in Guardians, for sure. Certainly you'll get more than the one turn around and smirk. You'll get much more than that!"
As we previously reported, Ronan is a member of the alien Kree race; he first appeared in Fantastic Four. Guardians of the Galaxy opens on August 1st, 2014.
