If you are a comic book fan, then you must get used to Josh Brolin.
Courtesy the shuffling at 20th Century Fox; it is now only a two-week gap between the release of Avengers: Infinity War and Deadpool 2, the sequel from David Leitch which will be the debut of Nathan Summers – the time-traveling mercenary whom you and Deadpool call Cable.
If that’s not reason enough to excite you, Josh Brolin also happens to play the character of the famous Marvel villain Thanos, whose MCU debut has repeatedly been teased over the last six years. That’s a once in a lifetime role for Brolin, who is also set to reprise the role in the sequel to Avengers: Infinity War, presently titled as Avengers 4. It would take care of the unfinished story next year, but, courtesy Brolin’s recent post on Instagram, we have got a more detailed insight into how Brolin approached his debut in Marvel Cinematic Universe. By that, we mean his real, physical debut.
The overbearing artwork shows colliding worlds while it calls Josh Brolin’s Mad Titan as the Clown Prince of Crime. We are not sure what made them do that, but, it is very much in sync with a fan video showcasing the Justice League fighting against the Mad Titan of MCU.
And then below is a caption taken from the latest Instagram update of Brolin wherein he has referred to his portrayal of Thanos as an “experimental theater piece.”
Doing Infinity War was like doing a limitless black box experimental theatre piece in the lower Eastside of New York City in 1975, mixed with Antonin Artaud, the living theatre, Grotowski’s Poor Theatre and a dash of punk rock acting surrounded by shiploads of talent.
No doubt that there is shiploads of talent in that movie. It is rumored that Avengers: Infinity War features as many as 76 characters, and 40 of those costumed heroes will join hands to be a part of a single battle sequence – which might be the siege on Wakanda.
