Before Josh Brolin was cast as Marvel’s Thanos, he made his comic book movie debut as DC Comics’ gunslinging Western anti-hero Jonah Hex. Despite the film’s strong ensemble, which included John Malkovich, Michael Fassbender, and “TMNT’s” Megan Fox and Will Arnett, the film was a total flop, critically and financially.
Regardless, Brolin doesn’t see the movie as a total regret. The actor told CBR News that, if he could go back in time, he would do “Jonah Hex” again.
While promoting the home video release of “Hail, Caesar,” Brolin reflected on his Western role. “People say, ‘I like your resume, I like what you’ve chosen.’ I always appreciate that. I would still do ‘Jonah Hex’ again. I don’t like the way it turned out at all, but I do think that there’s a good movie there. I think my intention was right. You’re never going to be perfect, man. You just do your best.”
While Brolin didn’t speak too harshly of the film, the chances of a direct sequel are slim to none. Apart from scathing reviews, the adaptation debuted seventh in its opening weekend to a mere $5.4 million, and grossed only $10.5 million on a reported $47 million budget.
The character last appeared in live-action on “Legends of Tomorrow,” played by “Quaratine’s” Johnathon Schaech. Producer Marc Guggenheim has expressed interest in bringing the character back for the second season.
