He explains that to play Thanos in Avengers, he was inspired by Brando in the film Apocalypse Now. He considers this character to be “elusive and insane”. When he turned to this movie for inspiration, it was because he found a parallel between the two roles he liked.
Regarding Deadpool 2, in which he plays Cable, he appears to regret not having had enough freedom to bring the character to life. Josh Brolin says “it was harder”. Unlike Avengers, the actor just had to do what the production told him to do. Probably because of the film’s commercial reasons. Although the experience on Deadpool was “fun,” the actor didn’t have much more fun playing the Mad Titan.
Even if he got a nice fee for playing Thanos in the MCU, Brolin states that it wasn’t the money that motivated him to take on the role. No, what motivated him to play Thanos is “the fact that all the Avengers team up with this guy” and come to the conclusion that “this is the aspect I loved”.
And you, do you prefer Josh Brolin as Thanos or as Cable?
