Josh Brolin has already appeared as the universe’s biggest bad-ass in Guardians of the Galaxy but he’s getting ready to really call down the thunder in Avengers 3 & 4: Infinity War.
The actor has been talking about why exactly he decided to take on the Avengers… promoting his new movie, Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice, he talked with Coming Soon about the back-to-back Avengers movies: “I love the idea of Thanos. Ultimately, it’s Thanos against everyone. Why wouldn’t you do that?”
And it looks like it was Louis D’Esposito, the co-president of Marvel Studios, who convinced him he was the man for the job: “He called me up and started talking about this thing. It was nice because I could intimately talk to him about it. What I liked. What I didn’t like about the whole idea of it… It was really exciting because of the possibilities that it could be come. Not as an idea or as a blockbuster, but just as something different. It’s a character mentality”.
The big question of course is when will we see Thanos again? After all, if he’s to become the biggest bad in the Marvel universe then we need to see him for a few minutes at least, no?
