Josh Brolin now has some new material to research for the return of his character Thanos in Avengers 4. During the press tour for his next comic book movie Deadpool 2, the actor was shown a video of the newly-introduced playable character in the Fortnite video game: Thanos, the Mad Titan.
During a sit-down interview with IGN, the actor got a chance to glimpse all that players could do with Thanos, including flying ("I don't remember flying, that's fake"), wielding the power of the Infinity Gauntlet and yes, bust a few legendary moves. "Oh look at that he's dancing," Brolin says in surprise. "What's the deal?" he playfully wonders, asking why Thanos would come to dance on the battlefield.
However, when the interviewer tells him that this is a victorious dance after a successful killing spree, taunting others to come at him, Brolin wasn't too accepting. "I don't know if I like that," the actor says under his breath, showing how much he understands the character he brought to life in Avengers: Infinity War.
Fans of Fortnite and Infinity War were given an unexpected surprise recently when Epic Games, the developer of the video game, revealed that users would be able to play as Thanos for a limited time engagement. Already, the inclusion of the Avengers villain is proving to be extremely popular.
