Kevin Feige talks casting Josh Brolin as Thanos, confirms multi-picture deal!


In an interview with Collider, Kevin Feige discussed the thinking behind Josh Brolin being cast as the Mad Titan, and also – excitingly – confirmed that Brolin had signed a multi-picture deal to play Thanos.

In the interview, Feige said “We knew he was going to be in this movie. We wanted somebody to be more than just the voice. Josh did the performance as well. We were looking at a wish list of, ‘Wouldn’t it be great if’ names, and his name was on it. And you look at his face and the performances he gives, he could be Thanos without any effects. He has that kind of face and that kind of gravitas to it.”

Which is one major box ticked, in that Brolin won’t just be lending his (admittedly fantastic) voice to Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Feige continued, “We reached out to him and it was one of those things that does not happen all the time but when it does it’s very nice, where he was totally intrigued. He was a fan of what we did, he met with [producer] Jeremy Latcham in a hotel in London and learned about the characters a little bit. I spoke to him on the phone a few times. We ran it by James who loved it, ran it by Joss who loved it because Thanos is in this universe because of Avengers. Then we shot him and recorded for it.”
Which all sounds incredibly promising, especially to a massive Thanos fanboy like myself. Just one more reason to be counting down the days until August 1st when Guardians of the Galaxy hits the big screen.
