When it comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, while we are all pretty much very excited about seeing some of the best superheroes making an appearance on the big screen, we are also keen to see what Marvel do with the villains in their movies. One of the biggest Marvel movie villains would have to be Thanos and actor Josh Brolin, who plays the role of Mad Titan, has opened up about being cast in the role.
Brolin was chatting to the guys over at Superhero Hype, when he explained to them, "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."
He added, "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."
Meanwhile, away from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Josh Brolin has a number of other interesting movies coming out, starting with the film Inherent Vice, which co-stars the likes of Owen Wilson, Jena Malone, Reese Witherspoon, Joaquin Phoenix, Benicio Del Toro, and Sasha Pieterse. Inherent Vice is written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, from the Thomas Pynchon novel, and opens on January 9, 2015 in the US and January 30, 2015 in the UK. Check out the Inherent Vice trailer below.
