Here’s another surprise. Benicio Del Toro reportedly is not playing Thanos in “Guardians of the Galaxy”. Instead the latest reports have him playing the Collector, an immortal who collects powerful objects and beings, including trying to “collect” the Avengers in the comics. Hm, he seems like a  pretty…silly villain from the outside looking in. But whoever he is playing he’s joining the likes of Zoe Saldana, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, John C. Reilly and more.
