Josh Brolin cast in Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers Age Of Ultron. The casting of Josh Brolin in Guardians Of The Galaxy (2014) and The Avengers: Age Of Ultron (2015) answers of the question of who will play the major villain in both films. Josh Brolin has been cast as Thanos in both films.

On Brolin’s participation in Guardians of the Galaxy:

the actor actually was cast months ago as Thanos for the James Gunn-directed pic and has completed all the VO work.

Thanos’ powers include:

enormous superhuman strength, stamina, and particularly durability; is able to absorb and project vast quantities of cosmic energy; is virtually ageless and immortal; does not need food, drink, or oxygen; and is capable of certain telekinesis, as well as telepathy and matter manipulation. The advanced technology within his transportation chairs includes force field projection, time travel, movement through alternate universes, space flight, and teleportation over interstellar distances. Thanos is an accomplished hand-to-hand combatant, having been trained in the art of war on Titan.

Thanos possesses superhuman intellect (he considers his mind his greatest weapon) and has knowledge of Celestial and other alien technology. Thanos is a genius in virtually all known fields of advanced science and has created technology far exceeding contemporary Earth science. He is also a master strategist and sometimes utilizes a space vessel called Sanctuary II as a base of operations.

More information on Thanos:

Thanos is a mutant member of the race of superhumans known as the Titanian Eternals. The character possesses abilities common to the Eternals, but in some cases far beyond any other known member of his race; acquired through a combination of his mutant Eternal heritage, bionic amplification, mysticism, and the entity Death.
