It's recently become known that Marvel Studios has cast an actor for the Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige confirmed the news in the latest issue of Empire Magazine, but didn't reveal the actor's name.

"There is an actor. I’m not sure we want to announce it yet," Feige said.

With Feige being hesitant to reveal the actor who will play Thanos, it's possible it could be a big name.

Actually, Vin Diesel has been speculated to be playing Thanos. Vin Diesel is voicing the character of Groot in the movie, which only consists of one phrase: "I am Groot"; so Thanos may be a possibility.

What we do know about Thanos in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie is limited, but we do know that he is sort of working behind-the-scenes, as Ronan (Lee Pace) is the movie's main villain and serves as Thanos' admiral. Thanos also is the adoptive father, or father-figure, to both Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Nebula (Karen Gillan), who appear to be bitter rivals in the movie. 

It's speculated Thanos will be involved in The Avengers 3, and James Gunn recently confirmed that Guardians of the Galaxy connects to The Avengers 3 as well.

We first saw a glimpse of Thanos in The Avengers movie when Loki made a deal to acquire the Chitauri army, much to the satisfaction of the Mad Titan.

"Guardians of the Galaxy" has an August 1, 2014 release.
