Although Marvel won’t confirm, word on the street is that Josh Brolin will be voicing Thanos in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy. Word on the street is that he’s already completed the voice over work for the film which comes out in just two months (August 1).
Director James Gunn has said that Guardians of the Galaxy is somehow connected to the next Avengers movie and a variety of websites are reporting that Thanos will make an appearance in that film as well.
With Thanos appearing in these two upcoming movies plus that gem at the end of the The Avengers which had Thanos (played by my buddy, the AWESOME Damion Poitier) giving a huge evil grin, Marvel most likely is building up to Thanos being the big bad guy in films down the road. Which is great because, I mean, he is a total scary bad-ass.
