Josh Brolin Rumored to Voice Thanos in 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

Josh Brolin

We've known since 2012 that the comic book villain Thanos, teased during the mid-credits scene that followed The Avengers, would have a role in both this summer's Guardians of the Galaxy, and next year's release of The Avengers: Age of Ultron. However, since he didn't speak in the aforementioned tease, we've been wondering just who will bring the cosmic bad guy to life. Now if a rumor from Latino Review is true, it will be No Country for Old Men, Men in Black III and Labor Day star Josh Brolin in the role. Well, he'll at least be providing the voice for Thanos when he shows up in Guardians of the Galaxy.

We've been talking about Thanos intermittently since his appearance in The Avengers credits, but for those who don't know, he hails form a group of god-like beings called The Eternals that have almost unfathomable power. His role as a bad guy will be a pretty big deal as the Marvel cinematic universe continues, mostly because of the credits scene in Thor: The Dark World (we explained that in-depth already). Thanos is the "Mad Titan" responsible for rounding up all the Infinity Stones to be placed in the Infinity Gauntlet, giving him the power to control time, space, reality and more.

Director James Gunn has already clarified the role of Thanos in Guardians of the Galaxy by saying, "Thanos is a character in our movie. He's the main sort of antagonist…in my movie Ronan works for Thanos, and Ronan is the main bad guy in our film." Ronan is the villain played by Lee Pace, and we're betting the climax of the film will finally show Thanos in some capacity encountering our ragtag cosmic heroes before making an escape to live-on and cause trouble for The Avengers sometime down the road. Josh Brolin will be an interesting addition to the Marvel universe if this rumor is true. Thoughts?

UPDATE: Hero Complex has confirmed the report that Josh Brolin will indeed voice Thanos. Carry on.

    Jesus, it's not a rumor, it's been confirmed by Variety. Check your facts before posting an article.

      Wanna calm down there chief? Go away.

        Really? We got Variety confirming it, this article is posted after the fact, and yet it treats it as a rumor because Latino Review brought it up.

          Perhaps they didn't check Variety.
    • Christopher Roberts
      Last time I checked, verifying something with Variety does not make it fact. Now if it was DISNEY or MARVEL then you would have something.
  • Xerxexx
    Hell yes!

    WHAT! An A-list actor like Brolin just to do a voice?!?! GTFOH! He needs a real role he can embody! He also is better off with a role in DC universe. I hope this is all this is, a rumor.
    • Astroboy3000
      Except that everything about the DC universe sucks.

      I wouldn't say Josh Brolin isn't quite exactly an A-list actor. Yes he's a great actor and he has made some excellent films over recent years but with that he has shared the same amount of hits and misses altogether. Plus regarding DC, he has already has been in a DC comic book role before which didn't seem to get him anywhere. I also heard he turned down Batman too. I wouldn't blame him after what happened with Jonah Hex. The MCU is just looking more successful now after The Avengers not only on a money making stand point.

        I'm curious to know who you consider A-list. Probably Ryan Gosling right?! Pfffff

    It's not a rumour. It's confirmed that he will be the voice-actor for Thanos.
    • JBrotsis
      He's also been confirmed to play Thanos, not just voice him.
      • Rock n Rollllll
        He's also been confirmed to play, voice, and do his taxes like Thanos
  • mooreworthy
