“Thanos is a character in our movie,” begins Gunn with Crave Online , confirming that his film will indeed fully develop the set-up at the end of The Avengers.

“He works with Ronan [The Accuser]. In my movie Ronan works for Thanos, and Ronan is the main bad guy in our film.”

Thanos appears to remain in the background of the action then, with Lee Pace’s Ronan as his emissary.

Meanwhile, Gunn has also been discussing the effects side of the film, promising plenty of practical shots as well as CGI.

“We have a prison set that is 350,000 pounds of steel,” says Gunn. “Our sets are enormous. Anybody who knows me knows I really love the mix of practical and CGI effects.”

“We have tons and tons of practical effects… I can’t wait for people to see it because it’s astoundingly beautiful.”

Guardians Of The Galaxy will open in theaters August 1, 2014.
