In this interview on Comic Book Therapy
taken at Dragon-Con, Thanos creator Starlin's said Marvel's staff has been speaking with him on the subject of the royalties they owe:
I didn’t know Thanos was going to be in the [Avengers] 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. [...]
Things are doing much better, but you know we’re not done yet and will be eventually.
I hope they will complete their discussions soon and guarantee that he gets a satisfying payment for what he provided them. It's about time.
