As you know, Marvel has been slowly building up to Thanos’ reign of terror in the two-part Avengers: Infinity War story arc. During an interview withMTV, actor Josh Brolin talks about his villainous character, and when asked if he would show up in Captain America: Civil War he says,
“I don’t know which one I’m in. That’s a Kevin Feigequestion. I know the trajectory of what they’re doing, but I don’t know exactly which one I’m in.”
The actor is then asked about the fan reaction to him in the MCU, and he seems to love it.
“I love going into a comic book store and a guy connecting me with Thanos, and seeing the incredible regressive awe that happens. Like you see them lose 30 years in can’t-breathe awe. That’s fun, and I have a lot of respect for those fans. I’m excited about doing it, I really am.”
It’s so cool to see that Brolin is genuinely excited about playing this role. When he was first cast, I thought he was the perfect choice, and I’m so glad that he and Marvel were able to work out a deal to make it happen. Brolin is also asked which Avenger he is looking forward to taking on the most, and his reply is perfect:
“I don’t have a favorite because it’s me against all of them. I think the entirety is what I’m most looking forward to. Each and every one. I’m bringing the wrath.”
I have no doubt that he will. Avengers: Infinity War – Part I and Part II will start shooting next year with Joe and Anthony Russo. These are sure to be the biggest Marvel films yet. Part I opens May 4th, 2018, and Part II May 3rd, 2019.
