Latino Review broke the story and Variety confirmed it in a matter of hours. Chalk up another rumor being right to Latino Review. Yes, the eldest Goonie, Josh Brolin, has been tapped to play Thanos in the Guardians of the Galaxy. Thanos was first seen after the credits in the original Avengers film. The size of his role and his involvement in Guardians of the Galaxy remains to be seen. It has yet to be revealed if Brolin will be dawning a costume or just supplying a voice. 

We will keep an eye open for an official statement from both Marvel and Disney!

They'll need to add a cowboy hat onto Thanos to make him look right. He's a fine actor but his style and demeanor isn't what I'd typically think of for a large bulky alien who brutally controls worlds and want to conquer the universe. I tend to think of him as southern or tough urban blue collar.


But then this is what being an actor is all about.

Aw Ya! It's time to assemble the Avengers!

I'm sure Thanos will be cgi and probably mo/cap with Brolin's facial characteristics and mannerisms and his voice synthesized for the appropraite BOOM Thanos' voice requires.

 Thanos, from all I know isn't as much as a brute as he is a mustache-twiddler type.  He's kind of a hopless romantic meet an intergalactic Lex Luthor.  At least that's what I've read(and seen him portrayed as).  

I'm more curious about the timing of this announcement being just over two months out from the release of GotG.  From all that I gathered, he wasn't featured in the film, nevermind announcing a casting after principle photography and editing.  I thought the film was pretty much in the can.  What role will he play?

 Well... apparently, Hollywood Reporter is reporting that he's coming in to voice Thanos.  Guess this makes a little more sense.

 Brolin is perfect, deep ominous voice.... Look at Oldboy, movie sucked but he's got mean and snarly all locked up in that one....


i know its corny but when I see Thanos I always picture James Earl Jones.... Another great choice in Leonard Nimoy

 Actually I believe that he's been signed on for months, they've been keeping it under wraps until now.

Leonard Nimoy is about as imposing as Leonard from the Big Bang Theory.

I wonder if Thanos will have sex with the Scarlet Witch know...Oldboy.
