Josh Brolin Says We'll See Thanos Soon



Over the weekend, Josh Brolin appeared at the Toronto Film Festival to debut his latest movie, Everest, where he also managed to talk Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Last we saw from Thanos was in the mid-credit scene for The Avengers: Age Of Ultron (watch below) where the Mad Titan decided if things had to be done right, he would have to do it himself. Thanos is also featured in The Avengers: Age Of Ultron Blu-Ray as part of the Infinity War featurette (watch that below, too).

It's exactly unknown when we'll see Thanos next, but it could be prior to The Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 that is due out in 2018 as Brolin says we might see Thanos soon.

"I think it's going to be fairly soon, and I know it's going to be good," Brolin told Coming Soon. "I'm very, very pleased about that whole trajectory and all the possibilities. I've talked to Kevin Feige about it and Louis D'Esposito. It's good. It's good."

Brolin goes on to comment on the fact that portraying Thanos is different than anything he has ever done, which he is happy about.

"I was in England doing Everest [while] making that decision, and strangely enough, I'm always surprised by what you decide to do right away, what you say no to and all that, and especially in hindsight, Thanos was almost immediate," Brolin said.

Brolin also lets it be known that what helped in his decision to take the role was a comic (assumed to be Infinity Gauntlet) that Marvel had sent over.

"I looked through a book that they had sent me. I was like 'God, this is amazing.'" Brolin said.

The interviewer then remarked that Jim Starlin is great and one of the best with Brolin agreeing.


Regarding Brolin mentioning that we'll see Thanos soon, it's possible Thanos could appear in Doctor Strange, which is due out November 2016 or maybe even Thor 3 the following November in 2017.

Update: Brolin talks more about Thanos as well as Batman (video).
