Josh Brolin will provide the voice of Thanos for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
Thanos is a member of the Eternals, a group of god-like beings with incredible power. He’s called the “Mad Titan” and is in love with the physical embodiment of Death. He has attempted to destroy humanity with his Infinity Gauntlet, which can control time, space, reality and even the human soul.
It’s unknown if the Gauntlet will appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (outside of a very brief appearance in Thor). It was revealed in Thor: The Dark World that The Collector (Benicio Del Toro) has been collecting powerful mystical objects, which led to many speculating that it would play a big role in the films.
He first appeared in the post-credits scene for The Avengers and is expected to appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron next year. It’s been rumored that he will be the main villain for the third film in the series.
