Josh Brolin might not have been on the set of Infinity War or its follow-up a great deal, but it seems the actor still had time to work with an intriguing co-star, whose presence confirms a meeting of two of the universe's most powerful characters.
The villain of the Infinity Saga gave an interview to Total Film Magazine to discuss his role as Thanos and talked enthusiastically about the actors he got a chance to work with. Some we already know - like Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr and Chris Evans, but there are a couple in there that are pretty revealing:
I thought, ‘What the [frick] am I doing here?’ Because you’re in a onesie, man. You’ve got to walk around in a onesie and imagine yourself as an actor with some impact. It starts messing with your head. I’m Josh, who’s got dots on him, and a onesie, and a helmet can, and I’ve got Scarlett right there, and I’ve got Brie, and Don Cheadle, and Hemsworth, and Chris Evans, and Downey…I’m sitting there and I’m looking like I look, which is not 700lb and purple and eight feet tall. I mean, I’m feeling about as far from Jason Statham as one can feel at that moment, and yet I’m acting like I feel 10 times what Jason Statham is. I’m the man!Advertisement
The fact that he mentions coming face-to-face with War Machine probably isn't a good thing for Rhodey - no offence to him as a character - so that might suggest he's got bad things coming in his future. But obviously more interesting is the mention of Brie Larson.
So far, there's no confirmation that Captain Marvel will appear in Infinity War, but there's been lots of rumours to that end and it seems inevitable that she will have at least a cameo ahead of her 1990s-set solo movie. Even if it's just in a post-credits sting.
Either way, the prospect of seeing her facing off with Thanos is a great one, as she's going to bring a power level that none of the other heroes can really compete with. Whether Thanos can is another matter entirely.
