Josh Brolin playing Thanos was appreciated by many and his co-stars were not left behind. Avengers star, not Chris Evans this time, Robert Downey Jr believed Brolin’s parameter of justifying Thanos has made the Infinity saga more appealing. Of course, it was never easy to portray the character in such elegant details blending special effects to his performance to make him look convincing. “Our real ace in the hole is Brolin,” Downey said (via, MCU: The Reign of Marvel Studios).
“To me, it’s not Thanos, it’s Brolin. Because he’s the one who is making this avatar be scary. And he’s a sweet guy, but he’s a formidable guy,” he added.
Brolin has proved to be a capable actor in pulling off the role of Thanos, the sweetness on his face swiftly transformed into a menacing scare as he integrated into the role of the Mad Titan. Karen Gillan, who plays Nebula in MCU would vouch for that. “It’s so easy to play an over-the-top villain,” Gillan said. But he’s “soft-spoken and it’s so much creepier that way. You’re like, Who are you? What are you capable of?” Certainly, Brolin’s Thanos has made the Infinity saga even scarier with his ruthless attempt to clear the path before reaching his goal.
