With Avengers: Infinity War premiering worldwide in just about two weeks, a flurry of new information is being handed out to us, the fans due to the press tour being done for the film. This being movie the MCU has been building to it needed to have a powerful villain to truly test our heroes. For that, they decided to build towards Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet.
Finding someone to portray The Mad Titan would be no easy task, but eventually, the job was given to Josh Brolin, who made his first appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy only receiving a few minutes of screen time. The Russo brothers explained his casting to The Telegraph.
“He’s such an amazing performer and so uniquely suited to Thanos,” Anthony Russo said. “What we were looking for in the character of Thanos is the strongest, most intimidating figure in the universe. While at the same time we wanted to tell a story about a character with a really complex and empathetic interior life. There are not a lot of actors that can give you both of those things. Josh Brolin is perhaps the best example that you can find where you have somebody who has a physical presence and brings that level of intensity and threat, while at the same time having another layer always at work underneath that, which is a very complex inner life and a lot of emotional depth and texture.”
Josh Brolin is sure to give an amazing performance as Thanos, when Avengers: Infinity War is released everywhere on April 27th. Let us know how you think Brolin will do as Thanos by tweeting us at @SuperBroMovies. –Collin Stetzner
