There was a rumor going around today, started by a Latino Review report, that Josh Brolin will be the official voice of Thanos for the Marvel Cinema Universe, and now the trades have confirmed it. Thanos, whom you might recognize from the post-credits scene from the first Avengers movie, has been speculated to be the big villain in Avengers 3. But before that, it had been confirmed that Thanos will play a role in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy, with that film’s main villain, Ronan the Accuser, essentially working for him. As we talked about after the Thor 2 post-credits scene, Thanos is after all six infinity stones (we’ve already seen two, the Aether and the Tesseract), which would give him the Infinity Gauntlet and the godlike power that comes with it. Forget the power — if we were the Avengers, we’d just want that snazzy glove he wears the gauntlet on.
