Avengers: Infinity War will finally bring Thanos out from the shadows to take on Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, though it appears Josh Brolin, who portrays the Mad Titan, was limited from working alongside his co-stars due to his role as Cable in Deadpool 2. In an interview with RadioTimes, Benedict Cumberbatch discussed how Brolin was not present for a lot of filming and was replaced by a stand-in for certain scenes.
Cumberbatch explained that Brolin’ schedule meant he wasn’t present during the filming of scenes involving both Doctor Strange and Thanos:
“They used a stand-in for Josh. Josh wasn’t in there for much, he did his bit and then a lot of stuff with a lot of us and him was missing because, I guess, he was doing Deadpool 2 and I was doing Melrose and The Current War.“
Of course, Cumberbatch added that everyone “made it work”:
“It’s often the case you can act with other actors anyways, in certain scenarios because of the amount of additional stuff you have to fit in with the environment or the magic or whatever it is that’s coming out of your hands or your ass.”
Cumberbatch also addressed reports that he himself was not on set for the first part of filming and had to have his face digitally painted onto a stand-in actor, explaining that he actually was present for a lot of filming.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Danai Gurira, Peter Dinklage, Benedict Wong, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Gwyneth Paltrow, Benicio del Toro, Josh Brolin, and Chris Pratt.
Avengers: Infinity War will be released in theaters on April 27, 2018.
