Last summer, Marvel brought Josh Brolin into their cinematic universe as the man responsible for bringing The Mad Titan, Thanos, to life. Brolin was responsible for providing the voice and motion capture for Thanos’ brief appearances in Guardians of the Galaxy and the post credit scene for Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Brolin has been relatively quiet on his role going forward and just how much fans can expect to see him before Avengers: Infinity War. He recently spoke with MTV about the future and how he is ready to show just how powerful Thanos will be.
There has been speculation among fans that Thanos could make more brief appearances in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 or Thor: Rangarok. If Brolin knows about such cameos, he isn’t going to spill the beans about those just yet.
I don’t know which one I’m in. That’s a Kevin Feige question. I know the trajectory of what they’re doing, but I don’t know exactly which one I’m in.
When Brolin gets a chance to play Thanos for more than a few minutes, he is excited about what will unfold as he takes on countless Avengers.
I don’t have a favorite because it’s me against all of them. I think the entirety is what I’m most looking forward to. Each and every one. I’m bringing the wrath.
Brolin also enjoys the amount of excitement that fans get when they realize who he is and what he can bring to the MCU.
I love going into a comic book store and a guy connecting me with Thanos, and seeing the incredible regressive awe that happens. Like you see them lose 30 years in can’t-breathe awe. That’s fun, and I have a lot of respect for those fans. I’m excited about doing it, I really am.
Brolin’s Thanos is currently on a quest to get all six Infinity Stones that when combined with the Infinity Gauntlet, will make him the most powerful being ever seen in the MCU. Since he is currently not, to our knowledge, in possession of a single stone, it seems likely he will have to pop up before the two-part Avengers: Infinity War event so he will be a force the Avengers will have a hard time against.
