Avengers star Josh Brolin reflected on playing Thanos and revealed if he’s ready for a return to the MCU.
Josh Brolin was first cast as Thanos for Guardians of the Galaxy but truly became one of the MCU’s greatest villains with Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame. On the Jess Cagle Show, Brolin first reflected on his time as Thanos thus far:
“I don’t know what their plan is. We’ve kind of bookended this thing after 10 years. I was so happy and I loved being involved in that so much because that wasn’t the intention when I first got involved. The whole Thanos character, it was more of a cameo and they liked the character so much. They had never felt like they had a villain that was substantial enough for what they were creating and then I think they felt like they found it and then there were two movies that kind of revolved around it. It was a lot of fun and it worked out for them very nicely.”
The attention then turned to the future, with Josh Brolin sharing if he would be open to returning as Thanos, despite his fate in Avengers: Endgame:
“I don’t know where they’re going with it, no. It’s not that I don’t have an interest in it. They have their own trajectory that they’re worrying about and if they want me to do it, I would do it I’m sure, but I don’t know what they’re thinking.”
Since Marvel Studios just introduced Thanos’ brother Eros in Eternals, it seems likely that Josh Brolin’s Thanos won’t be on the sidelines for too long in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Here is the official synopsis for Thanos’ last MCU appearance in Avengers: Endgame:
The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, “Avengers: Endgame.”
