Ever since we saw that big purple grimace at the end of The Avengers, we have all been speculating, who will play Thanos is the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

A lot of names were going round like Vin Diesel, Ron Perlman, Arnold Schwarzenegger, but now we have someone who I never even thought of.

Josh Brolin (No Country For Old Men) has officially been cast as Thanos and will play the character in Guardians Of The Galaxy and many more Marvel movies!

I could not be happier with this casting! Josh Brolin is one of my favorite actors, he can do comedy, he's great in a dramatic role and I've always felt like he has a presence to him and if Thanos needs one thing, its a presence, after all he is the big baddie of the MCU. This completely caught me off guard, I honestly wasn't expecting such a high caliber of actor to play this villain.

I think he has the look, the voice and the build. Brolin was my top pick of actor to become the new Batman and that went to Ben Affleck but I'm so glad that Brolin is still getting a big role in a comic book movie. He did Jonah Hex, but we all just want to forget about that.

So yea, I am clearly just over the moon about this casting but what do you guys think, do you like Josh Brolin as the Mad Titan and if not, who would you have preferred?


Who was your pick for Thanos?
