Josh Brolin May Reprise Thanos In MCU Secret Wars

Recent theories and rumors support Josh Brolin’s return as the Mad Titan Thanos in the MCU for the upcoming Secret Wars. It’s no secret that Thanos is dead. However, Thanos coming back for Secret Wars is not impossible either. MCU has that in the bag. You know, multiverse, variants and versions? Every fan who has worked up the excitement when Kevin Feige announced the MCU plans during the SDCC has come up with theories. One of them is having Thanos back down the line.

Even though this does make some enticing sense, Marvel has yet to acknowledge this officially. Of course, information is scarce about this. But according to Giant Freakin Robot, their sources confirm Brolin is on board again as the purple big guy. And we don’t mean Barney.

While the Thanos that Phases 1-3 got to show is dead, versions of him can still exist for the future phases. In fact, Disney Plus animated series What If…? already showed a version of him. In its season 1 second episode What If… T’Challa Became a Star-Lord?there was a scene showing Thanos as a more agreeable Titan.

However, if they do mean to bring him in for Secret Wars then we need some of his warrior attributes intact. From this point to the next few years, there will still be numerous projects that will come in to play. Several characters will still have to be introduced and developed. Then, approaching Secret Wars, we will be able to have a clearer view on how he can come into play.

A lot of fans have simmered down in their enthusiasm for the MCU after Avengers: Endgame. Arguably, many think that MCU has lost its unifying narrative. There are those who say they have spread their stories too thin and introduced too many new characters. Why didn’t they just keep the ones they have? Now, some say the only way to come back to their glory years of Avengers is to bring Thanos back.

We digress. Marvel Studios has the most successful delivery of franchise in the history of entertainment films. No other studio has come close. Definitely, there will be certain populations that would have less than favorable impression. But, everything else is still coming. We have always believed that Phase 4 is MCU’s transition phase. More importantly, it’s actually Phase 4 that will make everything else possible for Marvel.
