The worst kept secret in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was identity of the actor playing Thanos. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige admitted years ago Thanos would be in Guardians of the Galaxy, and months before release news broke that Oscar nominee Josh Brolin would play the character. Even though the official announcement wasn’t made until Comic-Con, Feige and director James Gunn both talked at length about the actor before release.
But now that it’s officially official, Brolin himself can talk about it. And the fact he’s promoting Sin City: A Dame to Kill For makes that possible. One outlet in particular got the actor to open up about his new role and he talked about how it got it, what he plans to do with it, how far in advance he knows what’s going on and more.
