First glimpsed during the mid-credits scene of The Avengers, Thanos is clearly being built up as a future supervillain nemesis for the team. But before he gets to face-off against Cap, Iron Man, and the rest, Thanos is set to make an appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy. This appearance is supposedly long enough that a voice actor is needed, and according to Latino Review that actor is Josh Brolin.

Marvel has yet to confirm this casting, but Latino Review has been the first to break some pretty big Marvel-related news in the past. Plus, Variety has backed them up, according to their own sources. So it looks like Brolin will be voicing Thanos for Guardians, and possibly beyond that, reprising the role for the Avengers sequels.

Guardians of the Galaxy arrives in theaters July 31 in the UK and August 1 in the US. What do you think about this bit of casting news? Let us know in the comments!
