Josh Brolin doesn’t exactly have the best track record when it comes to portraying comic book characters (see: Jonah Hex, W.), but the veteran actor will be tackling the big time—the infinitely big time, really—in Marvel’s upcoming Guardians Of The Galaxy. As reported by Latino Review, Brolin will play the cosmic supervillain Thanos, he of the all-powerful weapon The Infinity Gauntlet, in the upcoming film, and he’ll reprise that role in 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. Thanos first appeared at the end of The Avengers, although he was played then by actor Damion Poitier. Brolin’s role in Guardians Of The Galaxy seems as though it may not be large, but that will surely change for Age Of Ultron. If nothing else, he’s got the chin for it.
