SDCC 2014: OFFICIAL: Josh Brolin is Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

The acclaimed actor set to menace the Marvel heroes!

Thanos, Marvel’s most cosmic villain, now has a face as Josh Brolin joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

The celebrated actor can first be seen and heard as the Mad Titan in Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” in theaters August 1, and will subsequently play Thanos in future Marvel Studios films.

“Josh brings all the weight and stature necessary for a character as iconic and significant as Thanos,” said Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. “We’re incredibly excited for fans to see more of him as the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand.”

Brolin’s career began with the cult-classic “The Goonies,” and in his 29-year career since then the actor has taken on countless roles in both film and television, including critically-acclaimed performances in “No Country For Old Men,” “W.” and “True Grit.” In that time, Brolin has worked with such esteemed directors as Oliver Stone, Spike Lee, Joel and Ethan Coen, Woody Allen, and Robert Rodgriguez, who he will next reunite with on “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” later this year. Following that, Brolin will appear in director P.T. Anderson’s “Inherent Vice,” adapted from the novel by Thomas Pynchon.
