Thanos creator Jim Starlin has revealed his cameo in Avengers: Endgame.
The revered comics legend appears early in the film as part of the therapy group which Steve Rogers heads, taking over for the deceased Sam Wilson. The scene deals with the various members of the group coping with the aftermath of Thanos' snap in Avengers: Infinity War, which resulted in half the population dying. The scene also includes co-director Joe Russo.
"My film debut. Had a great time with some terrific folks, like Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, the script writers," he wrote on Facebook. "When I wasn't busy learning my one line or getting made up I had fun chatting with them. They and director Joe Russo were exceptionally open with me and for that I sincerely thank them, even though I had to keep my mouth shut for a year and a half afterwards."
Starlin's work is foundational to Marvel Studios' Infinity Saga. However, Starlin recently revealed he won't be doing any work with Marvel Editorial in the near future after a dispute over a Thanos graphic novel. Still, despite falling out with the publisher, Starlin has maintained he's treated well by Marvel Entertainment and him appearing in a Thanos-driven movie does seem like a win for both parties.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, Don Cheadle as War Machine, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Danai Gurira as Okoye and Bradley Cooper as Rocket, with Gwyneth Paltrow Pepper Potts, Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan, Benedict Wong as Wong, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie and Josh Brolin as Thanos.
