Josh Brolin has reportedly been cast to voice the villain Thanos in Marvel’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron as well as the highly anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy.
While actor Damon Poitier played Thanos during the after-credits scene in The Avengers, Marvel has been looking to cast Thanos over the last year.
Now they’ve found the voice of Thanos in actor Josh Brolin, who may also end up performing the Marvel villain’s motion capture as well. This could be some very inspiring casting for Marvel, which needs a prominent villain to replace Tom Hiddleston’s Loki.
Thanos can be seen next in Guardians of the Galaxy, which will hit theaters August 1, 2014, but he’ll have a major role in The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
While Marvel and Brolin’s representatives have yet to confirm the reports that he has been cast as Thanos, multiple rumors have now been reported since Friday and reliable insiders have been confirming the reports.
Josh Brolin’s latest films have struggled, including his most recent film with Kate Winslet, Labor Day, but he’s an excellent actor and we’re extremely excited for him to join Marvel’s Cinematic Universe by playing the incredibly powerful and interesting villain Thanos.
We look forward to Marvel confirming the news that he will voice Thanos, and hopefully we’ll get to hear him voice the character in the highly anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy, which hits theaters August 1. Watch the film’s latest trailer which gave us our first look at Lee Pace as Ronan The Accuser.
Brolin can also be seen soon as a newcomer to the sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, which is currently set to be released August 22, 2014.
