By being welcomed into the Marvel Cinematic Universe these days, you are joining the likes of some of the biggest film icons on the planet. Robert Redford and Sir Anthony Hopkins are just a couple examples of the amazing caliber of talent that has been seen in films under their umbrella. Now it appears Josh Brolin is the newest name to join the MCU family.
The announcement, as revealed by Latino Review, practically came out of nowhere and it has been confirmed that Josh Brolin will voice mega-villain Thanos in "Guardians of the Galaxy". The character appeared for a moment in the after credits of Joss Whedon's "The Avengers", letting out a mischievous smile when told that Earth was in jeopardy. He was played by Damion Poitier for those quick moments but now it appears Brolin will portray the baddie in the extended role.
Thanos is a member of The Eternals, a group of god-like beings with immense powers. He isn't expected to be the main villain in James Gunn's upcoming film as we already know Lee Pace and Karen Gillan will be playing two of the big antagonists, Ronan the Accuser and Nebula.
Brolin has already appeared in a previous comic-book film, starring as Jonah Hex in the D.C. property. His voice is very distinctive and has a unique rhythm and vibe to it. He seems like a great fit to voice a baddie, especially at the magnitude of a character like Thanos.
