On the coattails of the HUGE rumor of Josh Brolin being potentially cast as the voice of Thanos for Marvel's upcoming [Guardians of the Galaxy](movie:424073), I absolutely had to look into this guy. I mean, he's going to be playing THE Thanos, who has been regarded to as the "Final Boss," so to speak, for the Avengers. What I found makes me LOVE their casting choice. Why? Where do I begin?

  • His mellow, calm, and deep voice is as chilling as Benedict Cumberbatch's voice for Smaug in the Hobbit movies.
  • The jawline and facial shape matches Thanos as well if not better than Hellboy actor Ron Perlman.
  • He has the muscular build that is perfect for playing such a titan of a villain.
  • His eyes and his brow constantly give this vibe of "I could kill you right now if I wanted to", which is as Thanos as you can get.

Take a look at this clip of Josh Brolin from [Labor Day](movie:250606), perhaps close your eyes for part of it and just listen to the voice of Thanos as you realize just how perfect this casting choice really is.
