Josh Brolin Says Hearing Entire AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Story Gave Him Goose Pimples
It seems Marvel Studios has enlightened Josh Brolin all of what will happen when he makes his full-fledged return as Thanos in the Infinity War movies. Check out his reaction and more!
When Josh Brolin sat down recently with Moviefone to discuss last February’s Hail, Caesar!, the Academy Award-nominated actor was eventually pressed for any details surrounding big his role as the mad titan Thanos in Marvel’s forthcoming Avengers: Infinity War movies. Though he doesn’t spill anything for obvious reasons, Brolin does share some promising enthusiasm about the 2018/19 event upon hearing what will happen in the two-part story.
“Yeah, I sat at a table and I listened to the story from beginning to end, which was ... you know, sometimes you go around and you go, ‘Oh, it’s a great movie. Or this is a great experience,’” Brolin explained. “And you kind of know that it's not. This is the opposite.”
The actor then talked about how the purple-skinned supervillain is his most talked about role to date. “First of all, from a publicity point of view, or an interest, I’ve gotten more publicity playing Thanos, even though I haven’t done it yet, than all other movies combined,” he said. “If there’s any blurb of publicity at all for me, it includes Thanos in some way or another. ‘By the way, he’s got Hail, Caesar! coming out. But don't forget about Thanos – that’s coming out,’ which is amazing, which is really cool. He continued, “Then the other side of it is really how much it means to people. It all comes down ... these stories ... these Avengers stories all come down to this conclusion, and that's our involvement. Basically, my character against everybody. And it's really fun what they've chosen to do with the story. I think it's brilliant, personally. I was blown away, and had goose pimples pretty much 50% of the time that I was listening to what was going on, and pretty amazed that I'm going to be involved in it. So it's a big thing that's coming up.”
Avengers: Infinity War will be directed by Joe & Anthony Russo, and is scheduled to start filming in November with Part One opening May 4, 2018, and Part Two May 3, 2019.
