2018 is going to be a huge year for Josh Brolin. First, the actor will take on the role of motion-capture villain Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War and less than a month later, we'll see him play Cable in the Deadpool sequel. Both are Marvel comic book characters but exist in very different movies and live in vastly different worlds. The question is, though, which of them would the actor say is his favourite?

Well, in a new interview, Brolin was asked about Cable and Thanos and revealed that if he had to choose between the two, the Mad Titan stands out as his favourite due to the technology behind it. 

"Look, I really like doing Cable, and it's practical. But I think if I was to have a preference, it'd be Thanos, just because my expectation was pretty low, given that I just thought I was a prop. And it was quite the opposite, having seen enough of the movie and realised how cutting edge this technical process is, y'know? I was watching me. I was watching every twitch, every blink. I was watching my eyes. My actions. I was living through my intentions. At the beginning, before I said yes, I called Mark Ruffalo and I said, 'What do you think of this?' He was like, 'It's going to be really uncomfortable in the beginning, and then you see the movie, and you'll just be absolutely blown away by the stuff you were doing.' And that was then. They made huge leaps and bounds in mo-cap territory since then. There's nothing not authentic about it."

So, there you have it; Thanos - 1, Cable - 0. Seeing your performance brought to life through special effects with a character like Thanos must be truly incredible so you can understand why his preference went in that direction. It's interesting that Brolin had some reservations about playing the Mad Titan and it doesn't sound like he was too happy about the way he was used in Guardians of the Galaxy.

Which Brolin performance are you guys now most excited to see over the next couple of months?
