Marvel Studios To celebrate the release of Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel Studios released a video retrospective of the first two "phases" of its output on Friday, including the first chance many will have to see Josh Brolin's portrayal of cosmic villain Thanos. Recommended 'Guardians of the Galaxy': The Comic Book Origins of the Bad Guys The five minute video, titled "Marvel's Phase 1 & 2 A Look Back," was originally shown at last weekend's Marvel Studios panel at San Diego Comic-Con in Hall H and features scenes from the studio's releases to date including this weekend's Guardians of the Galaxy cut together to remind fans of both the characters and the action (Those explosions!
