The special effects powers that be behind Deadpool 2 are wasting no time getting ready for production as they begin the process to transform Josh Brolin into Cable. Brolin shared two images on Instagram today that certainly show his commitment to the role. Sitting still for that kind of head cast is not easy. Brolin is no stranger to wearing prosthetics for a role, he wore Jonah Hex‘s scar quite well. Check out some of what he’s going through below. (more…)
Word around the Internet Grapevine via The Hollywood Reporter, is that Josh Brolin (Jonah Hex, Men In Black, Avengers) has signed a four-picture deal to play Cable, aka Nathan Christopher Charles Summers, first in Deadpool 2 and then X-Force and others? While it shouldn’t surprise anyone, besides Ryan Reynolds, the soon to be Deadpool franchise has been making casting decisions from left-field since the beginning. (more…)
Coming soon, the beginning of production on Avengers: Infinity War and its counterpart, the yet unnamed Avengers 4. It will be an arduous nine month shoot, and it will feature about a million different characters introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far. A logistical nightmare to be sure, but Joe and Anthony Russo have already proven that they are up to the task thanks to this past summer’s Captain America: Civil War, and now we play the waiting game to learn more about the production. The following image is the first from behind the scenes of the next Avengers, and while it doesn’t reveal much, it does reveal that the film’s villain is already hard at work planning our heroes’ doom.

‘Captain America: Civil War‘ may still be in theaters, but fans are already looking forward to what will likely be the largest gathering of heroes, villains, and characters from Marvel Comics all coming to a head in a war on a grander scale… ‘Avengers: Infinity War.’
Though it doesn’t arrive in theaters until May 4, 2018, and the fact that there are still 5 Marvel movies that will debut prior (Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok, and Black Panther), that is only getting comic book readers/collectors and moviegoers even more excited. One person who finds “Avengers 3” simply brilliant is one of its stars, actor Josh Brolin. (more…)
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow has the entire time stream to play around in and the show is wasting no time skipping back and forth through time to tell the tale of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. One big payoff for old school DC fans will be when the group travels back in time to the old west where they’ll meet bounty hunter Jonah Hex. Now some of you might be asking yourself, Hex who? Well, we’ll tell ya after the jump pilgrim. (more…)
Left a subtle jab by Yondu (Michael Rooker) at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy, one of the great unanswered questions left to be resolved for the sequel is the identity of the father of Peter “Star-Lord” Quill (Chris Pratt). Of course, the character’s comic book origin offers an answer to that question, but from the sounds of it, and a new interview with director James Gunn, those of you beholden to all things comic book-y in terms of GOTG are about to be in for another surprise. That information, and whether or not the biggest bad of all in the Marvel Universe will play a significant role in the sequel, will be revealed after the jump… (more…)
Thanos. He’s the bad guy you love to hate. He’s only appeared in two movies so far and with a combined running time of less than five minutes, but if you’re at all interested in the coalescing story arc across all the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, you can’t talk about it much before mentioning Thanos. So you’re big, and purple, and mean, but you’ve had your @$$ handed to you twice now, once when your army was decimated on Earth and again when a ragtag group of criminals, including your own adopted daughter, robbed you of the MacGuffin you were so desperate to possess, now what do you do? Josh Brolin may know. He does, after all, play the part of Thanos. (more…)
Sure, this thing already leaked thanks to a “butt-cam photo,” but now you can enjoy Thanos in all his high-definition genocidal glory thanks to the first official image of the Josh Brolin-portrayed character in Guardians of the Galaxy. Thanos doesn’t do much in the film, but his presence looms large throughout as the gang from Marvel are clearly setting him up to be the biggest of all bads in some future film or films. But if The Avengers offered a mere sip of Thanos, Guardians allows us one big gulp, and only one thing’s for sure: this is a guy you don’t want to cross (even though everyone seems to keep crossing him). (more…)
Marvel’s ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ (ever hear of it?) is cutting through theaters like a giant pair of Infinity Scissors! Star Lord and his band of miscreant misfit friends try to save the universe because 1. They live in it, and 2. tyrant Ronan The Accuser is just too judgmental. You can’t let a guy with a name like that win. Yet, as grandiose as it all appears, at its root, the movie is all about seed planting for the much bigger picture: Thanos. I’m even posturing that every Marvel film before ‘Avengers 3′ is yet another building block for that one movie that’s gonna make us all cry tears of joy for years to come. That’s why it’s so “ooh” and “ahh” when an image of Josh Brolin’s Mad Titan character hits the web. And yep, you guessed it – he’s sitting down. (SPOILER) (more…)
Guardians of the Galaxy baddie Thanos may not have the brand recognition of Marvel villains like, say: Doctor Doom, Red Skull, or Loki.
However, if Marvel Studios prez Kevin Feige‘s opinion has any merit, then Thanos easily measures up to his nefarious contemporaries–with actor Josh Brolin giving him life, that is.
Brolin did more than simply voice the supervillain–they also filmed him, as Feige recently explained in an interview with Collider:
We reached out to him and it was one of those things that does not happen all the time, but when it does it’s very nice, where he was totally intrigued. We ran it by [Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn] who loved it, ran it by [Joss Whedon] who loved it because Thanos is in this universe because of Avengers. Then we shot him and recorded for it. We wanted somebody to be more than just the voice. Josh did the performance as well.”
