And the Actor Voicing Thanos in 'Guardians of the Galaxy' and 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Is...

Hey, remember that guy we caught a glimpse of at the end of The Avengers credits; the one who shot us a sly purple smile? This guy:

Though we haven’t seen him in any Guardians of the Galaxy footage as yet, The Latino Review reports that director James Gunn has discussed a particular Thanos scene (could be considered spoilerish, so swipe if you want to read: “He’s the main sort of… He works with Ronan (Lee Pace). In my movie Ronan works for Thanos, and Ronan is the main bad guy in our film.” The LR also reports Gunn spoke of Thanos on a rocket throne in act 3. End spoiler.

Multiple outlets have confirmed Thanos will be voiced by Josh Brolin, both in Guardians and Avengers: Age of Ultron (it is unknown whether Brolin will later take on motion capture for AAoU, but rumor has it his role will be more prominent).

Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters August 1st.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Different voice choices than I had expected. First for Rocket Raccoon and now for Thanos.

    It's all in the bass of his voice. If he can make it feel like that voice is coming from deep within Thanos, then cool.

  • Stephen Nein

    Josh Brolin, aka Oliver Stones' Dubya, as Thanos, the Avatar of Death?

    Irony, thou art boozed up with a dangerous look in your eye. Put down the spiked club, go home and sleep it off.

  • The Replicant Brooke

    I had the biggest crush on him when he was in The Young Riders. Anyone else? No?

  • BlackRabbit

    He's an interesting choice. I wanna see if he can do as well as Ruffalo with the CGI and still pull out a performance.

  • Michelle

    I love Ruffalo so much in that role.

  • BlackRabbit

    I also like saying his name. ruffalo ruffalo ruffalo

  • zeke_the_pig

    An interesting, agreeable choice.
