Guardians Of The Galaxy - 8 Easter Eggs Hidden In The New Trailer
8. Tivan, The Collector
There are two brief references to Taneleer Tivan, better known as The Collector; a face you may recognize from the post-credits sequence in Thor: The Dark World. He's seen during the action montage, and there are explosions around some containers that are marked with the Tivan logo. Played by Benicio del Toro, the Collector is a powerful member of the Elders of the Universe who began collecting interesting and powerful artifacts over three billion years ago. Initially he started collecting things as a way to keep his sanity, but over time it became an obsession and he started collecting anything he considered rare or valuable. It's still unclear what role he'll play in the overall scheme of things, but he's known to have ties to Thanos and at the end of Thor: The Dark World it was revealed that he's collecting infinity gems (he already has The Aether, and now just needs four more).
