Josh Brolin to Voice Thanos in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

By Amirose Eisenbach June 2, 2014

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.

Are you glad that Brolin is voicing Thanos? Let us know in the comments section below!

  • Now that was a fun way to spend a Friday night!!!

  • Just curious.....i was on the deadpool list already in 1984, and they finally nabbed me in 1991 (fortunately I was rescued at the last minute by Gurkhas, who did away with the bad guys). So now I am I on your deadpool list? Signed, Dr J And by the way, I just read a comment someone wrote about something I had written 2 years ago. Usually I don't go back and check on things that I write to see what others comment about what I may have written, but this program, this "Disquis" or whatever it is called, kind of just pulled it up and suddenly it was there. So I couldn't miss it. I always sign what I write with my real, actual honest-to-goodness name, not a fake moniker so that no one knows who it was who said this or that. I say what I mean, and I mean what I say. That having been said, I think we could all lighten up a little bit, and recognize a joking manner, when it is in written form. It is not as easy to distinguish jocularity in writing style, much easier to misinterpret, so maybe I should just write up front (insert her, this is a joke, folks!) whenever i am doing it. But I did honestly think that when I made a statement about "cool police" coming to take away someone's "cool points" forever, that pretty much everyone could recognize that as a joke, after all, no "cool police" exist to my knowledge (and if I am wrong, someone please let me know so that I can get my coolness back together, it has gotten a little loose around the edges lately). But for that statement, it was written that I had made a "mediocre aggressive review". Now that in itself is funny. But there was nothing mediocre about challenging why a review of who the coolest people on earth are included not one single person of color. That was not a mediocre statement, that was truth. And if truth is seen as "mediocre" to some people, then there perhaps is the bottom line issue in America, that we as American people cannot distinguish fantasy from reality any longer. That the idiot box has now completely disrupted our ability to think and to analyze and to distinguish what is real, versus what is the garbage fed to us on a daily basis from our governments, and from the Hollywood Machine. Frank Zappa was right when he wrote (and sang, in his funky way) "I am the Slime from your Video". He also should have been featured in their Cool hall of Fame, but was obviously left out, because he criticized (and often) the kind of garbage that Hollywood puts out called "entertainment", even worse now that we have cable (in some ways that is a joke, and in some ways it isn't). If you have read this, I thank you for your attention. If you haven't, it's probably just as well. I really just wanted to clarify a few things, and now I think that I have. Thanks. Dr J
