Kevin Feige On Josh Brolin Playing Thanos In Guardians Of The Galaxy

josh-brolinIn a chat with Collider, Marvel Studios' main man Kevin Feige talks about having Josh Brolin play Thanos in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

We knew he was going to be in this movie.  We wanted somebody to be more than just the voice.  Josh did the performance as well.  We were looking at a wish list of, "Wouldn't it be great if names," and his name was on it.  And you look at his face and the performances he gives, he could be Thanos without any effects.  He has that kind of face and that kind of gravitas to it.

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.  He was a fan of what we did, he met with Jeremy Latcham in a hotel in London and learned about the characters a little bit.  I spoke to him on the phone a few times.  We ran it by James who loved it, ran it by Joss who loved it because Thanos is in this universe because of Avengers.   Then we shot him and recorded for it.

When asked if they had cast Doctor Strange yet, Feige says "No". But when the interviewer followed it up by asking if that meant no announcement at Comic-Con or is it a contract thing, Feige just nodded.

He was then asked about the possibilities of an Iron Man 4 or if Robert Downey Jr. was only going to be doing Avengers movie from now one.

Of course anything's a possibility.  Who the heck knows?  We have a lot of work to go to finish Avengers 2.  We have a lot of work for whatever Avengers 3 is, that's all folks need to know.  Who knows what happens after that.
