We can’t wait to see what Marvel Studios’ upcoming Avengers: Infinity War will bring to the franchise. After a decade of films, it will be our first culmination of everything that’s come to pass. What’s more, it’ll finally bring the long-awaited clash between big bad Thanos and our heroes.
Taking on the role of Thanos is respected actor Josh Brolin, who has played the character since his first actual speaking appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy back in 2014. With Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos is finally looking to be a key player in the story, and we’ve only heard great things from the actors involved.
You can add Brolin himself to the list of actors, as he recently took to Instagram to compare his experience on Infinity War with some pretty high art stuff that, frankly, escapes my limited understanding.
“There’s just something about this that I love: a creative, out of the box bent on one of the greatest roles and times playing a role I’ve ever had. Doing Infinity War was like doing a limitless black box experimental theatre piece in the lower Eastside of New York City in 1975, mixed with Antonin Artaud, the living theatre, Grotowski’s Poor Theatre and a dash of punk rock acting surrounded by shiploads of talent. It’s once in a lifetime.”
Totally. Grotowski’s Poor Theatre.
Okay, while this comparison totally goes over my head (beyond a simple, shallow understanding of what I learned in film school), the good news here is that Brolin seems to be glowing about his experience. There’s nothing worse as an actor than getting a role without substance. Marvel has done a great job with their films in the past, but if there’s one consistent piece of criticism, it’s that their villains tend to be a bit shallow and boring.
With these comments, it at least feels like Brolin found a lot to sink his teeth into with the character, and we hope that means he’ll be both a formidable and interesting foe for the flick.
