Josh James Brolin, who was Zack Snyder’s choice to play the Caped Crusader before Ben Affleck was cast as Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, He didn’t stay long enough to see himself become the hero. Now he’s the villain in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, according to reports.
The America actor, who is known primarily for his roles in American Gangster, True Grit, Men in Black 3, Gangster Squad and Oldboy. Brolin will voice the supervillain in Guardians of the Galaxy and potentially play Thanos in subsequent movies, including Avengers: Age of Ultron and Avengers 3.
Thanos made his last appearance in a post-credit scene of The Avengers (played by Damion Poitier), created by writer-artist Jim Starlin. We haven’t seen him since and he wasn’t featured in Guardians of the Galaxy trailers.
Latino-Review also confirmed the news, “An article on James Gunn’s post-production process reported a scene with Thanos on a rocket throne in Act 3, which suggests an appearance long enough that someone is going to have to voice the Mad Titan, someone that could take the part into Avengers 3 as a major villain.
That meant Marvel was looking for an actor of some caliber, someone that could give a performance to a very complex, but very purple-skinned alien villain. Our sources tell us that person is JOSH BROLIN!!
He’ll be providing the voice of Thanos in Guardians of the Galaxy and with a name and reputation like that, it’s likely he’ll join James Spader and Tom Hiddleston as actors who have tried to kill The Avengers.”
