As we all know from Marvel’s handy film planner for the next decade, Avengers: Infinity War is a little ways off yet, but when you get cast in a Marvel movie, you’re going to be asked about it.
Speaking to Coming Soon about his role in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice, Brolin was asked about his role as Thanos and what we can expect to see in Avengers: Infinity War. Understandably tight-lipped, Brolin teased that:
“I love the idea of Thanos…Ultimately, it’s Thanos against everyone. Why wouldn’t you do that?”
“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.”
Coming Soon notes that we can next reasonably to see Thanos in any significant capacity in Guardians Of The Galaxy 2, which arrives in cinemas in 2017. Avengers: Infinity War is split into two, and hits in 2018 and 2019, so he’s got some time to prepare.
Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 is in cinemas 28 April 2017. To find out more about the comics that inspired the films, pick up our 100 All-Time Greatest Comics bookazine now!
