Josh Brolin is playing Thanos, the biggest, baddest villain the Marvel Cinematic Universe has ever seen.
The actor says he’s heard the storyline of the two-part film, Avengers: Infinity War, and he is simply in awe.
Here are his comments, as reported by Movifone:
Yeah, I sat at a table and I listened to the story from beginning to end, which was… you know, sometimes you go around and you go, “Oh, it’s a great movie. Or this is a great experience,” and you kind of know that it’s not. This is the opposite.
First of all, from a publicity point of view, or an interest, I’ve gotten more publicity playing Thanos, even though I haven’t done it yet, than all other movies combined. If there’s any blurb of publicity at all for me, it includes Thanos in some way or another. “By the way, he’s got “Hail, Caesar!” coming out. But don’t forget about Thanos — that’s coming out,” which is amazing, which is really cool.
Then the other side of it is really how much it means to people. It all comes down… these stories… these Avengers stories all come down to this conclusion, and that’s our involvement. Basically, my character against everybody. And it’s really fun what they’ve chosen to do with the story. I think it’s brilliant, personally. I was blown away, and had goose pimples pretty much 50% of the time that I was listening to what was going on, and pretty amazed that I’m going to be involved in it. So it’s a big thing that’s coming up.
