Thanos Confirmed for Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers 2 After Starlin Cuts Deal

CosmicBookNews is reporting that Marvel Studios has finally struck a deal with Jim Starlin, who was upset earlier this year when Marvel did not provide him with free tickets to The Avengers, which featured Thanos, a character he personally ripped off from Jack Kirby and DC. Thanos appeared in a post-credits scene in The Avengers, creating speculation that he would be the main villain in Avengers 2. Thanos was also rumored to be the villain in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, which was announced over the summer. However, many feared that Starlin's temper tantrum would force Marvel to change their plans.

Luckily, it appears Marvel has struck a deal with Starlin, as Starlin himself has confirmed that Thanos will appear in the movies. In compensation for the rights, Starlin will reportedly receive six free passes to see the movies in the movie theater, along with a complimentary #2 popcorn combo, which comes with a large popcorn and two medium soft drinks. If Starlin attends a 3D showing of the movie, he will get to keep the 3D glasses.  However, Starlin will have to pay out of pocket if he wishes to upgrade to an IMAX showing of the films.

Earlier this year, The Outhouse successfully negotiated with Starlin for the right to use the name ThanosCopter for its star news reporter, ThanosCopter. Starlin received a footlong turkey sub with his choice of toppings from Subway or a comparable sandwich chain in exchange for the rights. He is a shrewd negotiator.

In other news, Alan Moore has still gotten nothing for creating every single idea in use in comics today.
