The title should be enough to tell you that incredible news occurred today from Disney and Marvel. Thanos, arguably the greatest foe of the Avengers, has been cast for the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film! So who’s the actor that will play the utterly evil and tyrannical villain?
Josh Brolin. The man who played George W. The man who was the hard-luck protagonist in No Country for Old Men. Tom Chaney in True Grit. I love Josh Brolin the actor, so I have high hopes for his ability to play this huge role extremely well. The smug arrogance Thanos is generally known for is sure to show itself through the big screen.
Thanos is set to appear in Guardians of the Galaxy later this summer, but then make another (and possibly larger) appearance in the 2015 super movie, Avengers: Age of Ultron.
