Joss Whedon - Joss Whedon: Thanos is Avengers 'big finale'

'The Avengers' director Joss Whedon says villain Thanos is the ''big finale''.

The filmmaker has hinted that the diabolical alien - who was introduced in the post-credits scene of last year's superhero blockbuster movie - will be an ever-present theme in Marvel's 'Phase 2' movies which concludes with 'The Avengers 2' in 2015 and he won't just be a nemesis that is defeated in the course of one film.

Speaking to DesdeHollywood.com, he said: ''Well, Thanos is more powerful [than the Avengers]. He is so powerful, he is not someone you can just trot out and punch him. Like he did in the comics, you want him to be threading through the universe and to save the big finale for the big finale. He is definitely a part of what I've got going on.

''The thing about the Avengers is that they are very powerful, but they're not very stable. So, there will definitely be some people that will shake them up in the next installment.''

Marvel's 'Phase 2' - which signifies the movies released between 'The Avengers' and 'The Avengers 2' - includes 'Iron Man 3' and 'Thor: The Dark World' which will be released this year, 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' and 'Guardians of the Galaxy' which are due next year, and finally, 'The Avengers 2' in 2015.
