When it was announced that Josh Brolin would be the actor behind the villainous "Mad Titan" Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you were hard-pressed to find anyone with a bad thing to say about it. You don't complain when an actor as good as Brolin takes on one of the most famous and powerful comic book supervillains of all time. In true Marvel Studios fashion, the actor has remained fairly quiet about his work on the character, but he recently spilled the first details about the part and his role in the Marvel movies.

We first met the cinematic version of Thanos in 2012 -- his face smiling at us during a mid-credits sequence of ‘The Avengers,’ there to let us know that this guy is the mastermind behind the whole operation. OK then! Eventually we learn that Thanos is trying to collect the Infinity Stones, because if he has those, he will become a god. Fair enough. Though, now, after ten movies in the Marvel cinematic universe – ten! – Thanos has a grand total of zero Infinity Stones. So far, Thanos is terrible at being a supervillain.
While Thanos won't pop up in 'Avengers 2,' according to Marvel's Kevin Feige, we will get to see him in 'Guardians of the Galaxy.' At Comic-Con, the Marvel Studios president and producer told us there will be a shot of him replicating that iconic image of the Mad Titan lounging on his throne, and now the first look image has leaked out.
Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' hits theaters this Friday, and it's packed with familiar faces (and voices), like Chris Pratt, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, and new favorite Karen Gillan. And while they're superhero superstars now, that wasn't always the case -- it may be hard to believe now, but there was a time when you didn't know their names. Join us as we take a look back at the cast of 'Guardians of the Galaxy' to see what they were up to before they were famous.
After catching a glimpse of the villainous "Mad Titan" Thanos in the post-credits scene of 'The Avengers,' inquiring minds wanted to know when we might see the overarching Marvel baddie again. We know that he'll make his first ever appearance in 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' but might he also pop up in 'Avengers 2'?
Director Robert Rodriguez released a new 'Sin City 2' trailer unto the Reddit community following an AMA, and it is exactly what you'd expect -- hardboiled narration, stylized black-and-white cinematography, tough guys, sexy women, and an absurdly good cast that includes the likes of Josh Brolin, Eva Green, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke and Lady Gaga.
Joel and Ethan Coen's upcoming movie 'Hail, Caesar!' has not only landed a distribution deal with Universal, it's also netted Coen vets George Clooney and Josh Brolin to star in a tale of Hollywood and the tabloids of the '50s.
When we first saw the villainous Thanos at the tail end of 'The Avengers,' fans knew what was coming. After all, you don't tease one of the biggest villains in the entirety of the Marvel universe without admitting that you're planning to translate the iconic "Infinity Gauntlet" storyline to the big screen. That probably won't happen until 'The Avengers 3,' but fret not, true believers: Thanos won't be hanging around offscreen for too much longer. He'll play a role in the upcoming 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' and a new report gives us an idea of what he'll be doing in the film.
We've speculated for months on who would be playing Thanos, the overarching villain of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Would it be Vin Diesel? Benicio Del Toro? Kevin Feige said they had the actor cast, but that they weren't ready to reveal who it was just yet. Well, they might not be ready, but that doesn't matter because the word is out.
With so much attention lavished on comic book adaptations, it's surprising that 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' isn't projected to be one of the bigger films of the summer. Then again, it doesn't feature any superheroes, and it's a sequel to a film that came out nine years ago. But to stoke interest in the return to 'Sin City,' character posters have been released.
