After a brief appearance in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, fans are eager to know when Josh Brolin’s Thanos will be back on the screen again and now Brolin talks about his upcoming appearances in a new interview.
Brolin first off reveals what drew him towards Marvel Cinematic Universe, “When they started telling me the story about them getting together in Palm Springs, nine of them flipping burgers and talking about what Thanos was going to do and going, ‘What do you think?’ like, ‘Captain America’s going to show up here!’ Then, ‘Oh my God, what if the Hulk came in at that point?’ and all that — I love that shit, Brolin told IGN in a recent interview.
I love it, because those guys are absolutely saturated with that world, and they love story. Another thing that I really loved is, they said that they didn’t use directors that did music videos and all that in the past.
They would always look for people who had done stories. If you look at James Gunn’s oeuvre, he’s done even web series, but they’re all stories.”
Since Marvel hasn’t provided an official list of movies Thanos will make an appearance, but Brolin talks about his upcoming appearances, “I know what one appearance is going to be for sure. There’s one or two that I don’t know.”
Two of those appearances will likely be in Guardians of the Galaxy sequel and The Avengers 3, although there might be a surprise appearance before then.
He then talks about his primary inspiration to bring Thanos on big screen and says that Colonel Kurtz (Marlon Brando’s character in Apocalypse Now) is the source of inspiration.
“I ask, ‘Do I see myself as this thing and could I do this thing?’ Not that I’m ever 100-percent sure, but we had constructed this small thing, Kevin Feige and I and Robert, and going onstage at Comic-Con. Then it became something else.
Once I got onstage, it sort of became its own improv. I knew at that point, because I saw the rivalry between Robert [Downey Jr.] and I, and I thought, ‘I get this. I suddenly really get it.’ So I feel like I’m more inside it than I was.
It was more a display to me before that. It was more cosmetic. Now I think I’m starting to get who the guy is a little bit.”
Guardians of the Galaxy sequel will hit theaters on July 28, 2017.
