The Mad Titan has been less than angry (or crazy) in his appearances thus far in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but that's all about to change for Thanos.

While Thanos appeared in the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie, Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige (and recently director James Gunn) says not to look for Thanos in the sequel.

"I wouldn't look to hard in that movie for Thanos," Feige told Empire Magazine about Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

Feige continues with mention Thanos will be more than just a cameo that smirks when we see him next.

"Are you asking if he's going to do more than sit in a chair and smirk? Oh, yes," Feige offered. "The next time we see Thanos he will not be messing around. It will be, "Oh, that's why they've been teasing this villain for five years!'"

The article then speculates the "smart money" is on Thanos coming to Earth to retrieve the Infinity Stone from Vision's head in Avengers: Infinity War Part 1.

Regarding Guardians of the Galaxy 2, while Thanos may not be featured, new members will.

"There have been many different incarnations of the Guardians over the years in the comics," Feige said. "And we'll catch a glimpse of additions over the course of the movie."

Watch Thanos's appearances in the MCU below as well as the Infinity War featurette.

"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" has a May 5, 2017 release; "The Avengers: Infinity War Part 1" hits May 4, 2018.
