Josh Brolin on Playing Thanos, Cable, and Which Villain Would Win in a Fight

Josh Brolin has some thoughts about who’d win in a battle if Thanos from the Avengers series and Cable of Deadpool fame ever came to blows. And that makes sense, considering the Academy Award-winning actor plays both villains in two of this summer’s biggest movies.

“Avengers is a 700-pound purple dude, which was different than a 190-pound, scarred up, machine-armed guy—you know what I mean?” he said on the set of his June 2018 cover shoot for Men’s Journal. When asked who’d whomp whom, Brolin didn’t hesitate: “Oh, no. Thanos for sure,” he said. “There’s no contest. There’s no contest.”

Avengers: Infinity War is in theaters now, and Deadpool 2 will premiere on May 19. Read more about Brolin’s rise to fame in the June 2018 issue of Men’s Journal, on newsstands now.
