If you are looking to go into The Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 blind, go check out the Thor: Ragnarok Comic-Con trailer now because Josh Brolin drops a few interesting tidbits.
We all know The Avengers: Infinity War sees the Mad Titan Thanos attempt to acquire the six Infinity Stones to form the all powerful Infinity Gauntlet: Tesseract (Space Stone), Aether (Reality Stone), Orb (Power Stone), Loki’s scepter and Vision (Mind Stone), Eye of Agomotto (Time Stone), and the soon to be revealed Soul Stone.
Good Morning America asks Josh Brolin about the Infinity Stones in which Brolin says each one represents a different power.
“Every one represents a power. A massive power. And all of them together, the ultimate power.”
Brolin is then asked if Thanos actually gets the six stones in The Avengers: Infinity War, which is where the spoilers start to occur and ties into Avengers 4.
“There’s a few in [The Avengers: Infinity War trailer], and he’s always pining to get another one in there. So ultimately, we don’t know. I haven’t done the second movie, so I don’t know. I literally don’t know what the second script [for Avengers 4] is. I don’t know if they finished the second script. That’s the truth. I don’t know. I think that they are in the midst of structuring and restructuring.”
So Josh Brolin seems to be stating that Thanos doesn’t acquire all of the Infinity Stones in The Avengers: Infinity War, which means Thanos’ story continues in Avengers 4, which interestingly enough has the rumored title The Avengers: Infinity Gauntlet. Director Joe Russo also recently revealed Avengers 4 films in two weeks.
Josh Brolin offers further insight into Thanos, which if your are a fan of the comics sounds like Marvel Studios is getting it right:
The thing with Thanos that you don’t understand is there is times when it can become psychological and not necessarily brute force. Interesting. More interesting for adults now. Maybe not for kids–not that statement, but to you, your eyes kind of glimmered. Intelligence, man. Intelligence. Diving right in. It is a smart movie. It is a really smart movie.
He’s a smart character. I had no idea. In all truth. When I did the teaser, we had like thirty-six cameras or something, and I sat on a seat, and I wasn’t working with anybody. Now like being actually involved and interacting.. I can’t. I want to mention characters, and I can’t, but of the characters that are in it, it’s way more emotional and way more interactive than I thought. So it’s actually a lot of fun and a lot deeper than I thought. A lot more emotional than I thought.
