Josh Brolin has made quite a name for himself in the realm of comic book movies. This summer, he’ll star in Deadpool 2 and Avengers: Infinity War as both Cable and Thanos, respectively. Brolin was even considered for the role of Batman in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and though playing the Dark Knight might be a dream for many actors in Hollywood, Brolin seems to be thankful that he didn’t get the part.
Speaking with ComicBookMovie, Brolin elaborates on just how close he came to becoming the next Bruce Wayne, and discusses his conversation with director Zack Snyder.
“We indirectly talked about it, but we never got to the point because I wasn’t the guy for him. I’m really glad it didn’t happen. I haven’t thought twice about it.”
Despite a strong box office performance, Batman v Superman failed to strike a cord with critics and audiences, and the film continues to divide fans two years after its release. Infinity War and Deadpool 2 are shaping up to be massive hits, so it seems Brolin has made some smart choices. Still, one is left to wonder what Brolin would have brought to the role of Gotham’s Caped Crusader.
