    Personally, I thought the fact that he was played by Michael Rooker was explanation enough!

    I checked his IMDB, and although I've seen some of his stuff, I think he's more known in the US then global. The Walking Dead seems to be the only huge international thing he did. Other shows he was in that have been aired international were things where he only played in one episode.

    So yeah, most people outside the US will kinda go 'who?'.

    Maybe so. I'm in Ireland but I've always been in awe of him since Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. He was also a lot of fun in James Gunn's Slither.

    The general assumption at this point is that Thanos is going to be the main villain in Avengers 3, so if he is, I assume he'll be playing a very active role there.

    No kidding!! And I'm even more smitten after watching the link posted in the replies where he is dancing with a little girl dressed like baby-Groot!

    Who knew that "Merle" had a soft side!

    When he let go of Star-Lord after Star-Lord promised him that recovering the Orb would yield a great sum.

    Oh, I know eventually he'll be the main villain in a movie and will have to be very active (though honestly I think it may not happen as soon as Avengers 3), I just hope he gets a little bit more active build up before that happens. There's only so much menace you can get out of a guy sitting in a chair, and he really needs to be built up even before his big movie arrives.

    Have yet to see it. Though I'm intrigued by the Star-Lord's father angle I've been hearing elsewhere. It also seems there's a delay in bringing in Thanos in any movies, for some reason. I say this because of two allusions in movies, and he's still not coming out.

    Never heard of Guardians of the Galaxy till fans started getting excited over the movie coming out but went to see it based on good reviews. Really enjoyable movie, I'm very much looking forward to the sequel.

    If you liked the movie, I highly recommend the comic. Volume 1 (issues 1-12) is collected in one edition here.

    To be fair, he doesn't even have a line in Avengers. Or even an appearance at all if you actually limit it to the movie itself (and not the post credits scene).

    The post-credits scene is part of the movie.

    I think he's one of those character actors who you've seen in dozen of movies and TV shows over the years so recognise his face, but never remember his name.

    At least until now. ;)

    Michael Rooker is a well known character actor, I remember seeing him in Cliffhanger and the excellent Outer Limits ep. he did. He normally plays tough guys but he does have comedic to his acting as well.

    I was introduced to Michael Rooker with Mallrats. He's also been in most of James Gunn's other films too.
