Josh Brolin says Avengers: Infinity War is Thanos against everyone

Josh Brolin has been discussing what we can expect from his character in the next two Avengers films, summarising the third instalment in the series as “Thanos against everyone”.

“It’s different man, it’s just different,” says Brolin, when asked by Collider about the contrast between working on Avengers and current picture, Inherent Vice. “I don’t have a thing like, ‘I only do small art films’ or ‘I only do this.’ I just read a story and go, ‘wow... that’s cool.’”

“It’s not, ‘I want to get into this genre or that genre.’ So Thanos came along.. and I had a good friend Louis D’Esposito who used to be a first AD and is now the co-president of Marvel, and he and I used to train together.”

“We did Hollow Man together. He called me up and started talking about this thing. It was nice because I could intimately talk to him about it. What I liked. What I didn’t like about the whole idea of it. But I love the idea of Thanos.”

“Ultimately it’s Thanos against everyone,” continues Brolin. “So why wouldn’t you do that? I was more nervous doing that than I think I’ve been in long time. I was in front of thirty-two little cameras and I had a face sprayed with iridescent paint. It’s really exciting, the possibilities of what it could become.”

Avengers: Age Of Ultron will open in the UK on 24 April 2015 and the US on 1 May 2015, with Infinity War part 1 set to follow on 4 May 2018.
