I didn’t know Thanos was going to be in the movie until a couple weeks before and so there were some mixed feelings on that. Marvel and I are now talking. I can’t say anything more than that at this point about it. As far as the books go, I stopped reading Thanos when I stopped writing it, so I have no feelings about anything anyone’s done with it because I don’t know what they are.
He’s also not the one responsible for the sudden cancellation of the Thanos: Son of Titan series:
Like I said, I’m not working with Marvel now so I don’t know the reasons they did that for. Like everyone else, I saw it on the internet. I did talk to the author of it and he told me that they were going to go through and pretty much stick with what I had put down and he was going to do some time things with his mother that I didn’t quite understand what he was talking about. It sounded like he had a good recap, which I’m not quite sure why you would need that these days because you have all the books in print… I know they got a really good job right afterwards, you know, a replacement job so they’re not unhappy about it. I know the author was very hot to do it and I was really sorry to see it fall apart like that.
The “replacement job” Starlin’s talking about is the January-launching Morbius The Living Vampire series that’ll be written and drawn by the announced Thanos team of Joe Keatinge and Rich Elson. Calling the never-to-be-seen Thanos mini a “recap” feels a little harsh, doesn’t it…?
