Brolin nervous about playing Thanos

Josh Brolin has admitted it's nerve-wracking playing his Marvel character Thanos.

The actor portrayed the comic book character in Guardians Of The Galaxy, and will reprise the motion-capture role in Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Infinity War.

He told Collider of the character's future: "Ultimately it's Thanos against everyone. So why wouldn't you do that?

"I was more nervous doing that than I think I've been in long time. I was in front of 32 little cameras and I had a face sprayed with iridescent paint.

"It's really exciting, the possibilities of what it could become."

The actor credited a Marvel Studios co-president with getting him on board to play the villain.

"I had a good friend Louis D'Esposito who used to be a first AD and is now the co-president of Marvel, and he and I used to train together. We did Hollow Man together. He called me up and started talking about this thing," he said.

"It was nice because I could intimately talk to him about it. What I liked. What I didn't like about the whole idea of it.

"But I love the idea of Thanos."
