Benicio Del Toro can be seen as one of the world’s most notorious and successful drug lords in Escobar: Paradise Lost beginning on Friday, June 26.

But the actor’s Marvel fate is – seemingly – somewhat up in the air. When we sat down to speak with him, Del Toro said he wasn’t certain if the Collector would be making an appearance in the highly-anticipated sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy.

“I would like to keep working on that character, though,” he said. “It was kind of like a cameo. I would like to keep developing the character based on what’s written in the comic books. I’d like to see some different sides. I had a blast working with James Gunn and the cast – but it’s not up to me.”

Of course, Marvel has already seeded the Collector’s role into the larger Infinity Gauntlet storyline. So, it seems unlikely that we’ve seen the last of him. When asked if there were any particular directions that the studio had pointed in during his pre-Guardians research, Del Toro said there was one key character element that stood out as significant.

“[In doing the research] I said, ‘please help me out,'” Del Toro recalled. “Because there are big, thick volumes about the characters. So they did point me in the right direction. I learned a lot about the character. One of the most interesting things that I learned about him is the reasons that he’s collecting. He sees himself as putting together Noah’s Ark. He sees himself as having that responsibility. He’s collecting things, because eventually there’s going to be an apocalypse in the universe and he wants to get things to safety. That’s a really interesting aspect of the character.”

Interesting indeed, and seems to have the potential to play out during Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and/or 2.
