For those looking for a little more info, Marvel star Josh Brolin, who may or may not show up in Avengers 2, has offered some new insight into the ultimate Marvel universe villain.
Speaking with Coming Soon to promote his co-starring role as Detective Christian "Bigfoot" Bjornsen in Inherent Vice, the actor revealed how he became attached to the project, and why he likes the character:
"I love the idea of Thanos. Ultimately, it's Thanos against everyone. Why wouldn't you do that?"
Josh Brolin claims that it was Marvel Studios co-President and two-time Marvel One-Shot director Louis D'Esposito that got him interested in the project.
"Thanos came along because of my good friend Louis D'Esposito. He and I used to train together. We did 'Hollow Man' together. He called me up and started talking about this thing. It was nice because I could intimately talk to him about it. What I liked. What I didn't like about the whole idea of it... It was really exciting because of the possibilities that it could be come. Not as an idea or as a blockbuster, but just as something different. It's a character mentality."
Right now, it sounds as though Thanos' next appearance won't be until Guardians of the Galaxy 2 in 2017, but we may be surprised by an unexpected cameo sooner than that. Josh Brolin will really get to take on the entire Marvel universe in Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 coming in 2018 and 2019. Stay tuned to the official Avengers: Age of Ultron website for more info in the very near future.
