Josh Brolin's voice is joining the Marvel universe, as he's lending his tones to Thanos...

This story inevitably contains what's in the headline. There's also a very mild spoiler for Avengers 2.

Marvel has finally let the cat out of the proverbial bag (well, the cat's out of the proverbial bag anyway), and the identity of the mystery actor set to voice Thanos in James Gunn's Guardians Of The Galaxy has been revealed.

The voice in question belongs to Josh Brolin, although it seems we won't see him at any point. It's just his tones we're getting for this one.

Brolin is also set to voice the character in Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age Of Ultron, and The Wrap reports that Thanos is set to have "a more prominent role" in the new Avengers movie than he does in Guardians Of The Galaxy.    

Guardians Of The Galaxy is set for release on July 31st in the UK.

Yep, really like it. Brolin's a very good actor, great voice aswell.

I'm just glad it seems Thanos is finally coming into play, he was introduced like 2 years, 3 movies, and 1 tv series ago and hasnt even been mentioned since then.

Very apt, as I bought the Marvel Legends Thanos figure today. I assume he'll be done with motion capture or CGI? But this seems a good choice of actor (yet again).

I meant Marvel Select, not Legends.

Seems like a good choice, presumably there will be some motion capture too. Marvel have been making great casting decisions lately, shame they're having less luck with their directors.

Good news at marvel??? HUZZAH!!!!!!!!

Not been confirmed by the studio yet though has it.

I'd have liked to have seen him as Batman. Good work again though Marvel!

I hope they do mo-cap, but good casting choice non-the-less.

I've heard rumours Ben Affleck is the next Batman. Not sure if it's accurate though - I haven't seen it reported anywhere.

I suspect, as you may know, that he's referring to the fact that Brolin was on the "next Batman" short list BEFORE Affleck was announced as having been cast or even considered

You see straight through me, detective. YOU should be Batman (or at least Robin)


that was my prototype suit from 1989 :-)

What! When did this happen? Ha ha! Maybe the next the reboot in 2016?

i think Keith David would have been a better choice to voice thanos.
