I have been a fan of Benicio Del Toro for quite some time and when I heard he would be playing The Collector, I was delighted. I’m really enjoying his take on Taneleer Tivan in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far and am looking forward to his next appearance. I consider Benicio one of my favorite actors and feel a connection with the character of The Collector… Because reasons!
