Josh Brolin Reveals Why He Didn't Play Zack Snyder's BATMAN And What He Wanted For JONAH HEX
Once upon a time, we heard that Josh Brolin was in talks to take on the role of the Caped Crusader in Batman v Superman. Here, he talks about not landing the role and Jonah Hex's failings. Check it out!
However, Brolin has now revealed that he had some big ideas in mind for the DC Comics adaptation. "That was my fault. I had really good intentions," he says, mentioning that he wanted Oldboy director Chan-wook Park to take the helm. "He was right on the verge of saying yes. I think the movie would have turned out closer to my intention, which was High Plains Drifter."
After saying that he only starred in the similarly disappointing Sin City: A Dame to Kill For "because of Robert [Rodriguez]" and that he "would do anything he wants me to do," Brolin weighed in on why he's seemingly avoided comic book movies. "Is it deliberate? Almost. It's not that I turned them down. It's just not what I wanted to do at that moment. The bigger things, I just stayed away from."
Perhaps the biggest superhero movie role Brolin failed to land was the Dark Knight in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Asked how close to came to landing the role in the Zack Snyder helmed released, he said: "We indirectly talked about it, but we never got to the point because I wasn't the guy for him," Brolin explains. "I'm really glad it didn't happen. I haven't thought twice about it."
A big part of why Brolin likely feels that way is down to how the DC Films Universe has been faring with critics; the Marvel Cinematic Universe, on the other hand, is going from strength to strength so he's bound to feel a little more confident about Avengers: Infinity War and Deadpool 2 is likely a guaranteed hit as well.
