Thor: Ragnarok may have had one of the most out-there casts of any Marvel Studios production so far. We had the drunken Valkyrie, the soft-spoken Korg, a temper-tantrum Hulk and Jeff Goldblum playing the Grandmaster. He was certainly one highlight of the many characters that made Taika Waititi‘s project stand out. Comic fans probably already know that the Grandmaster is the brother of Collector, who we last saw in Guardians of the Galaxy. Both of them are considered the oldest beings in the known universe, which makes some wonder if we will see them interact on screen. Luckily, Fandango had the opportunity to ask Kevin Feige exactly that.
It would be awesome man. It would be great. We love the idea that they’re brothers. If you go on the Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout attraction at California Adventure in Anaheim, you will see a picture on Collector’s wall of he and the Grandmaster playing some sort of a space chess game, which right now is the only place you can see the two of them in a frame together, but let’s hope that changes someday.
It certainly seems that the two of them meeting may potentially happen. With so little information released on what we can expect from Avengers: Infinity War and its sequel, it is unsure if we will see the two of them make an appearance. It would make sense that the Collector would be featured, as he does have the Aether hidden away in his collection. There is also the possibility that Thanos already got his hand on the Infinity Stone since the events of the first Guardians film. One thing is for sure, seeing the very over-the-top Collector and Grandmaster meet could be quite a sight to see. Feige does point to the painting that was made for the Guardians theme ride that features them together, which is a good indication of their overall relationship.
What do you think? Would you want to see the two of them interact? How do you think it should happen?
