According to ComicBook.com on Thursday, "Sin City 2's" Josh Brolin takes to a Reddit AMA session to answer questions from fans about his current and up coming projects. Brolin claimed to be fully caffeinated for the question/answer interview as he wound up promoting his next project Sicario which stars "Guardians of the Galaxy's" Benicio Del Toro and "Edge of Tomorrow's" Emily Blunt. It's filming in Albuquerque and Brolin is sporting a more gray ambiance to his facial hair.

Brolin then later brought up the topic of what he thought of his role as it was announced he would be playing the Mad Titan Thanos. He had come to realize the energy that has propagated with the Marvel Cinematic Universe and of course is inclusive with his own role in the movie. He realized it was about the fans and not about the critiques. Brolin also remarks in regards to his rivalry with Robert Downey, Jr.

"Once I was at Comic-Con I realized what it meant to everybody. The critics' impact is minimal here, it's all about the fans. And when I was at Comic-Con, I realized the great rivalry between Robert & myself, and so did Marvel, so I think they have big plans for Thanos in the future."

Fans may recall having first seen Thanos at the end tease of "The Avengers" where he's behind the Chitauri attacks on Earth during the Battle of New York as he sits back on his throne in his sanctuary. Then, just recently, came Brolin taking on the role of the Mad Titan in the full CGI animation as well as details entailing his pursuit of the Infinity Stones as he has Ronan the Accuser do his bidding. Some may recall threatening Ronan, if he should fail to bring back the Infinity Stone to "bathe the starways with his [your] blood." Even his daughter Nebula recognizes that the Mad Titan shouldn't be trifled with even by the likes of Ronan.

Brolin realizes that his role is influential to the story arc that could lead to the Infinity Gauntlet leads him to have extraordinary powers. He proudly donned a Hasbro toy version of the gauntlet as he made his way to the stage and rasied it up high above his head for fans at the San Diego Comic Con only to get an astounding applause. So it would seem that there are big plans and eventually and "end game" for his role.
