Josh Brolin is a very busy man. Next year, he’ll be playing two very iconic Marvel characters; Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War and Cable in Deadpool 2. And those are just his comic book movie gigs. Brolin must sure love doing superhero flicks, as these two are not his first, with Brolin also appeared as the lead in the best left forgotten Jonah Hex, and already showed up as Thanos twice in Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Age of Ultron, with yet another Thanos appearance set for Avengers 4. So, what draws Brolin to superhero movies, besides the paycheck?
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Brolin expressed his excitement about being involved in Avengers: Infinity War:
“I love doing Avengers, it’s maybe the most fun I’ve ever had. I just saw a little snippet of it, and it was amazing. The cutting-edge technology of what they’re doing — what I’ve seen is absolutely mind-blowing. When I saw it on screen, it was me, but also not like me. It’s really strange.”
Avengers is the most fun he’s ever had? No one tell Deadpool! That dude gets jealous.
Refamiliarizing myself with Brolin’s entire catalogue via IMDB, it doesn’t look like the actor has much experience with motion capture, so his amazement at these effects is to be expected. Imagine seeing your expressions and hearing your voice come out of a giant purple monster’s mouth! Brolin obviously does enjoy such roles, as though a paycheck is nice, most actors wouldn’t tackle roles like Thanos and Cable back-to-back. So, we can assume he’s having fun on that set as well, even if the CG alterations are less major.
Avengers: Infinity War hits the big screen on May 4, 2018.
