Josh Brolin is rumored to return to the marvel universe, and we could be seeing him as two characters. Read below to find out the details.
About: Josh Brolin
Joshua Brolin was born in Santa Monica, California, and was raised later on a ranch in Templeton California. Brolin was not interested in acting in the beginning; however, after he performed in one of his high school plays he got hooked to it.
With his rugged features and a natural charm, Brolin has performed in some major films which include The Goonies, Sicario, True Grit, and W. He also auctioned for the role of Tom Hanson for 21 Jump Street and even became a finalist. However, was defeated by Johnny Depp who got the role.
Josh Brolin is accustomed to starring in a comic-based movie. He acted in the DC-based movie Jonah Hex as an antihero protagonist with the same name and later appeared as the great Titan Thanos in the MCU franchise as well as Cable in Deadpool 2.
Josh Brolin: returning to MCU
After Thanos was turned into dust in the Avengers: Endgame the possibility of him appearing in phase four of MCU was doubtful.
However, rumors started going around that Josh Brolin might be returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe but not only as Thanos but he will also continue to portray his role of cybernetic soldier Cable in the Deadpool series.
While the Marvel Universe phase four films are ready to release this year; Josh is assumed to reprise his role as the Great Titan in The Eternals which is scheduled to release by the year’s end.
The Eternals are immortal being who has roamed and concealed themselves on earth for thousands of year’s, reunites to take down their enemy, The Deviants from destroying the planet.
The multi-star movie will have an ensemble of Angelina Jolie, Game of Thrones actors Richard Madden and Kit Harington along with Kumail Nanjiani, Lauren Ridloff, and Salam Hayek.
Deadpool’s previous installments were included in the X-Men film series. But earlier this year it was confirmed that the third movie is going to be taking place in the Marvel Universe which furthermore, raised suspicions among the fans that this might be an inkling towards a much-awaited crossover between the Marvel Universe and the X-Men world.
MCU and X-Men: Crossover
Theories for both the universes to combine have been anticipated by the fans for so long. However, the link between the two series to come together was always a brain teaser.
But the fans think they might have found the connection between the mutants and the marvel heroes to come together is in the movie Avengers: Endgame.
The theory insists that the Infinity Stones perhaps contained the potential to activate the genes of the X-Men. And as phase three of MCU concluded with Tony Stark snapping his fingers before he died, might have awakened several characters from X-Men as well.
Moreover, the fans think they have already seen X-Men in Avengers: Age Of Ultron. The theory argues that the Mind Stone was the key to reawaken the mutant genes in the Scarlett Witch and his brother, Quicksilver.
We could also get to see x-men in the series The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, as a leaked picture from the series might have hinted at the arrivals of Wolverine and company in the series.
