Josh Brolin Gives Details On His Experience Playing Thanos
Apparently the folks over at Marvel Studios haven’t told it’s main MCU villain exactly what the extent of his destructive role will be in the upcoming ‘Avengers: Infinity Wars’ movies. Josh Brolin who plays Marvel super villain Thanos recently told members of the media he only recently in learning what the extent of Thanos role will be in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He sat down with SuperheroHype and explained what it takes to bring the character of Thanos to life and his thoughts on taking on the responsibility of playing such an iconic comic book character:
“It’s not voice work, it’s mo-cap. I’m there. I’m there and I’m not in a booth. I’m being filmed. I have a bunch of crap on my face. [laughs] I’m being filmed by like thirty-four cameras? Thirty-six cameras? Something like that. Every movement, everything. So, it’s very new to me, it’s very exciting, it’s very unnerving. But I sure trust these guys! You know?…It’s one of the better decisions I think I’ve made.”
That sounds fucking insane. Marvel is dabbling into some serious James Cameron shit with this mo-cap technology they’re working with, which is refreshing for me. I was starting to feel the CGI in Marvel movies were starting to lack a bit. Brolin also described how secretive everyone at Marvel Studios is and how he really didn’t know how far his role would go. He sat down with CinemaBlend and said the following:
“So Kevin [Feige], Louis D’Esposito – who I’ve known for a long time, since he was a First AD that I worked with on Hollow Man with Verhoeven – and then the brothers… the Russo brothers. I get together with them next week, maybe the week after, and we’re going through the whole thing. And I don’t know anything at this point. I know a little, but, honestly, very little.”
Can’t wait to see this guy in action when ‘The Avengers: Infinity War’ opens in a couple years.
