Josh Brolin confirmed to play Thanos in Guardians of the Galaxy

05.30.2014

With all of the developments and mystery surrounding Ultron in the AVENGERS sequel, we have forgotten all about the big tease at the end of the first film showing us a glimpse of Thanos. Many expected that to mean the big purple Eternal would be the foe for the Marvel superteam in the second film, but Kevin Feige confirmed James Gunn's assertion that Thanos would appear in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY for a likely major villain role in THE AVENGERS 3. He also teased an actor was chosen to play Thanos, but the announcement was not coming yet.

Latino Review claims to have discovered who that actor is and it is none other than Josh Brolin. Their source is now being confirmed by The Wrap and other media outlets.

Latino Review cites James Gunn's post-production process as including:

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.

The question now is whether Brolin will be motion captured, covered in purple make-up and prosthetics, or just voice acting the role in THE AVENGERS 3. At least for GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, the role will be voice only. And boy does Brolin have a good voice for the part.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY opens August 1st.

But when they try to keep secrets, as JJ Abrams strives to do, people complain that they aren't hearing enough new tidbits. It's damned if you do, damned if you don't. Besides, it's not all the fault of Hollywood. Websites like this one seek out as much as they can. If your concerned about this, you shouldn't visit a movie news site.

Those people are idiots, and should not be catered to.

I actually don't blame movie sites like JoBlo for leaked info, because you're right. You don't have to come here. I blame the studios themselves who cut together trailers and television commercials that freely give away plot twists and other surprises.

Well I go to these sights for spoilers in the first place and any upcoming news on the current status of the movies I'm interested in. How about you have a little self control and stay away from movie sites that are intended to keep updates for fans if you don't want spoilers. I'm so tired of everyone blaming others for their own ignorance and self control problems, your like the woman who sued McDonald's because her coffee was too hot. F.Y.I. knowing that Josh Brolin will play Thanos or any of

First off, I agree with tonyzidaich in that if you don't want to be reading these spoilers you probably shouldn't be spending you're free time on a "Movie News" website. With that said, his analogy of the McDonald's woman burning herself on coffee shows he doesn't really know what he's talking about. That literally has nothing to do with reading something he didn't want to know. She got second degree burns from the coffee. SECOND DEGREE! She also didn't sue them for millions. She just

That literally has nothing to do with reading something he didn't want to know. She got second degree burns from the coffee. SECOND DEGREE! She also didn't sue them for millions. She just wanted the medical cost covered. If someone gives you a coffee I'd expect you would want to drink it, not get second degree burns. If she HAD drank it, think of the damage that would've been done to the inside of her throat. My point is,... umm.. shits fucked?

I never said Millions. My point was that people just walk blindly around this world and point the finger at everyone else when all they need to do is take control of their own lives. I don't know about you but when I order a coffee its in my human nature to take a little sip and to see how hot it is first, (knowing that coffee is hot) it's the same when I order a soup from a restaurant, I'm not an idiot I know these things are coming to me hot, I get that it was too hot, but I have never burned

I have never in my life thought well I'm ordering coffee that usually comes hot but i think I'll take a gulp of it because I'm so thirsty. Where does the responsibility end for you. If human nature has taught us anything its that we need to look out for ourselves, and if you don't understand human nature than i hope your parents taught that to you. Because brother no one gives a shit about what you are dealing with or how safe the coffee is for you. How about this then, he is as ignorant as parents are for trying to sue McDonald's for getting their kids fat. "making the Happy Meals too attractive for children. It's all about choice, YOU CHOOSE!! Also, Please don't ever assume that someone you do not know at all does not know what they are talking about, its just hurtful words to say about someone you do not know. We as humans have become so inconsiderate and sheep like as well as too aggressive towards one another.

So long as he's worshipping Death in the movie, then I'm ok with it.

This will suffice. But is Vin Diesel seriously only going to voice Groot? Then what was all that shit he was talking about?

Rocket throne, eh? Let's hope it has death rays.
Still the thought of a villain hovering about in a sci-fi comic movie makes me really want to see a live action adaptation of Dan Dare. Keep the retro-futuristic stylings and it could be pretty amazing.

They did that with RDJ, and it worked out pretty well. That paved the way for them to get pretty much any actor the want.

hmm an unlikely actor for a superhero? like Paul Rudd? or a relatively unknown actor in the lead, like Chris Pratt?

They did with Tom Hiddleston and Chris Hemsworth.
@Lordmiz. RDJ was well known when he was hired. He had been on the decline movie wise, but many people knew who he was.

@The_Holiest, I think that Lordmiz was saying that RDJ was an unlikely choice for Iron man. It seems like a given now, but back when they first confirmed him he really was an unlikely choice (for most).

Charlie Cox is a bit of an unknown, and he got the role of Daredevil on the Netflix series. Everyone wanted the more recognizable actor Michael C. Hall, so Cox is certainly a risk and a bit of an unlikely choice.

Thank you John Matrix, that is exactly what I was saying. To further my point I'll say that making such brave casting decisions along with deciding to finance the films themselves, had made Marvel the powerhouse they are today. They continue to deliver, so I continue to believe in them, at this point they can do no wrong. Even their "mediocre" films are highly entertaining movies that fill the seats, I challenge you to name another studio that can make such a boast...

Hate to say this but....

For a superhero movie to really work, the viewer needs to feel like the hero is truly in danger and the underdog. For Thanos to FEEL like an actual threat and an insurmountable task against so many hero's, Thanos needs to be CGI and close to Hulk's size. (Like he is in the comics) Then add all of his incredible power, and it will actually feel like The Avengers are in trouble.
