Josh Brolin felt like Superman in MIB outfit

Josh Brolin felt like a "kid putting on a Superman suit" when he put on his Men in Black III costume.

The actor plays a younger version of Tommy Lee Jones' character Agent K in the latest instalment of the sci-fi franchise. Josh stars alongside Will Smith in the newest of the iconic film series and says appearing on set was dreamlike at first.

"When I put on the suit, it is a somewhat surreal feeling. It's like a kid putting on a Superman suit," he laughed in an interview with ET Online.

Will gushed about Josh's performance in the movie. The Hollywood star says his portrayal of Tommy's character will leave audiences astounded.

"It's just magic. You get a glimpse into what young K would have been like through Josh's eyes," he smiled. "It'll be 15 minutes in the movie before people start paying attention again - just from being shocked by the re-creation."

Will has appeared in the Men in Black franchise from its beginnings in 1997. The actor was keen to make the third instalment a memorable one after the second film failed to rouse much interest.

"When the first movie came out, it was such a huge conceptual hit, you had just never seen anything like that, it was kind of strange and different and new, then we made the second film and everyone kind of felt like, 'Ah, we didn't go with the second one how we wanted!'" he explained.

"So we wanted to be absolutely certain that we were making a fantastic movie before we went back in and we weren't making it for the sake of it."
