Oscar nominee Josh Brolin is a big fan of Thanos and can't wait to go up against the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. ComingSoon.net was among the outlets that caught up with the actor during a press junket for Inherent Vice, where the conversation inevitably turned to his role as the Mad Titan.
“I love the idea of Thanos,” Brolin said. “Ultimately, it’s Thanos against everyone. Why wouldn’t you do that?”
Parts one and two of Avengers: Infinity War will act as the major conflict the films have been building toward since 2011, with the introduction of the Tesseract in Thor.
“Thanos came along because of my good friend Louis D’Esposito [co-president of Marvel Studios],” Brolin continues. “He and I used to train together. We did Hollow Man together. 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.”
Brolin, who briefly appeared as Thanos in Guardians of the Galaxy, will take center stage in the Infinity War films, which are scheduled for release on May 4, 2018, and May 3, 2019.
