Last night, Guardians of the Galaxy finally premiered on theater screens after years of anticipation and some camera-happy moviegoers were ready to take quick snaps of the action. One person got a shot and quickly uploaded it to Instagram of Thanos, one of the most feared villains in the Marvel Universe who made his movie debut with a brief profile shot in 2012’s The Avengers, but was played in full for a few scenes in Guardians by Josh Brolin.
Thus, Marvel Studios was compelled to release a higher-quality image of the Mad Titan sitting atop his rocket-powered throne during his first full appearance. (A snippet of this scene was also included near the end of the Comic-Con sizzle reel that Marvel also released today.)
If you haven’t seen Guardians yet and would prefer not to have Thanos’ CGI-rendered visage spoiled then you might want to skip the remainder of this article. For the rest of you, here it is….
Guardians of the Galaxy is currently playing in theaters everywhere in 2D, Real 3D, and IMAX 3D. If you need any more reason why you should check out one of Marvel Studios’ best films to date, then read FamousMonster’s awesome review.
