UPDATE: Josh Brolin To Lend Voice To THANOS In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

Though there was a relatively unknown actor behind the mad titan's purple prosthetics in his Avengers debut, Thanos will reportedly be played by none other than Josh Brolin in Guardians of the Galaxy.

The folks over at Latino Review have bagged another hot Marvel scoop, and it finally uncovers the big mystery surrounding who exactly will play the big and bad Thanos in Guardians of the Galaxy. "Our sources tell us that person is Josh Brolin," reveals the Latino site. Considering the upcoming Marvel space epic is in post-production, Brolin is expected to only provide the voice of the "machiavellian" character as opposed to wearing prosthetics or CG markers. However, given the Oscar-nominated actor's celebrity, and the purple supervillain's 2012 debut in The Avengers (played by Damion Poitier), as well as the fact that Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has said many times that his film is definitely connected to The Avengers 3, expect Brolin to actually portray Thanos against Earth's Mightiest Heroes... eventually. That is of course after they take on James Spader in Avengers: Age of Ultron, in which Variety reports Thanos is also expected to make an appearance. Anyhow, Josh Brolin's recent credits include Spike Lee's Oldboy, Gangster Squad, Men in Black 3Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and he also led the flopped DC Comics movie Jonah Hex.

UPDATE: The Wrap has confirmed Latino Review's scoop, and echoed Variety's note that Josh Brolin will also appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron next year. However, despite the many characters already in Joss Whedon's upcoming Avengers sequel, The Wrap adds that Thanos "will have a more prominent role" in that film than he does in Guardians of the Galaxy. What do you think?




Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits–Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand - with the galaxy’s fate in the balance. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is presented by Marvel Studios and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gilian, Djimon Hounsou with John C. Reilly, Glenn Close as Commander Rael and Benicio del Toro as The Collector. Distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, the film opens August 1, 2014.

Don't know why they didn't want to keep Poitier, but I'm on board with Brolin. Solid actor.

Motha[frick]in BROLIN!

TheAbaryMan369 - 5/30/2014, 12:29 PM
That's.... That's.... That's.....

...Actually, a really great choice for Thanos. I hope this is true, it can actually work.
Destined - 5/30/2014, 12:30 PM
Definitely wit it.
ForMeToPoopOn - 5/30/2014, 12:30 PM
You need to add "rumored" to the headline.

As far as the choice, I dig it.
TheAbaryMan369 - 5/30/2014, 12:30 PM
What if Brolin only does the voice and Poitier will physically play Thanos?

Yessir. That is a fantastic choice. DC should have nabbed him for Batman when they had the chance.
Chcl - 5/30/2014, 12:31 PM
good choice!

I love it... Maybe this is why he turned down being Batman. That & his she-devil ex-wife being in the movie. But I'm down for this. Let the pages on pages on pages of articles commence!




JoJo1982 - 5/30/2014, 12:33 PM
Heck yeah!!!
Brainiac13 - 5/30/2014, 12:34 PM
I like It......great choice.
DrDoom - 5/30/2014, 12:34 PM
This is extremely unfair. My article was seconds behind, and DOES NOT feature plagiarism.
Highflyer - 5/30/2014, 12:34 PM
I like it.
SmellofDuty - 5/30/2014, 12:34 PM

[frick] YEAH
ezio619 - 5/30/2014, 12:35 PM
they say he will provide the voice so poitier will be the body ala david prowse and james earl jones for darth vader.Latino review has been on point lately with the charlie cox casting as matt murodck, bradley cooper as rocket... and drew goddard leaving daredevil for sinister six so yeah i believe it and its out of left field but great choice
DAGuess - 5/30/2014, 12:35 PM
Source?
SageMode - 5/30/2014, 12:35 PM
Awesome casting
TheAbaryMan369 - 5/30/2014, 12:35 PM
Doom Apparently articles are allowed to be plagiarized by editors so that they can get first dibs on an article...
MarvelFan15 - 5/30/2014, 12:36 PM
I'm 50/50 on this. Latino Review was right when Bradley Cooper was cast as Rocket Raccoon, so I probably think they're right. But, well have to wait and see. However, if true that Brolin was cast as Thanos, then I'll dig it. Thanos's return is one the reasons why Guardians of the Galaxy will be Marvel's next billion dollar hit.
TheIncredibleHulksta - 5/30/2014, 12:36 PM
So does this mean we're getting a Thanos and Scarlet Witch sex scene?
MsDarkPhoenix - 5/30/2014, 12:36 PM
Cool!!
DrDoom - 5/30/2014, 12:36 PM
ALSO, my article had the source (and an image) FIRST!
ezio619 - 5/30/2014, 12:36 PM
i guess we will hear a confirmation by the end of the day
wookiefit76 - 5/30/2014, 12:37 PM
that's cool

@ Yoss

I'll see your booty and raise you 2 boobies.

BlackIceJoe - 5/30/2014, 12:37 PM
Well that is an interesting choice. I was thinking more along the likes of Keith David, Malcom McDowell or John Hurt. But Josh Brolin is a good actor. So I hope he will do a good job.
AlexanderLykins - 5/30/2014, 12:37 PM
I just got [frick]ing chills!
JoeyGhoul - 5/30/2014, 12:37 PM
Sweet!
MrReese - 5/30/2014, 12:37 PM
Reaction GIF: whoa, CM Punk
wookiefit76 - 5/30/2014, 12:37 PM
oh! Latino Review. hmmmm!
DrDoom - 5/30/2014, 12:37 PM
If there is any justice at CBM, my article will be the one used for this news. I did not plagiarize at ANY point during my article's construction.
MantiniuMan - 5/30/2014, 12:37 PM
Not Bad,Not Bad at all.....

And he has been in a CBM before....

Men In Black 3 and he was good in MIB 3,so yeah good casting.....
JoJo1982 - 5/30/2014, 12:37 PM
I think Thanos should be straight up CGI character much like Hulk, Groot, and Rocket
