Actor Josh Brolin has given life to two Marvel characters, the villain Thanos and the time traveler Cable, and he has no doubt which one is more difficult to play.
If we review the filmography of Josh brolin we realize that he has given life to a lot of comic book characters. Since it was Thanos in the movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Cable in Deadpool 2 (2018). He also starred Jonah Hex (2010), Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014) and the manga adaptation Oldboy (2013).

In a recent interview, he admitted that he found playing Thanos a lot easier to play than Cable and has to do with the way the Russo brothers approached the material on set.
“I mentioned Brando in Apocalypse Now (1979), this guy who is very elusive and crazy, but what he's saying makes sense and is poetic. I started to see the parallel that I liked. I loved being able to turn to a movie like Apocalypse Now when I was doing something like Avengers. The more I saw him, the more I realized he was a real guy. Thanos isn't a big purple guy, he's a guy with an interior, cells, and feelings. Then it got fun. For me, it was like going to do a black box theater in 1970s New York. You totally use your imagination. It's absolutely behavioral, if not more so than other movies. "

However, it was very different with Deadpool 2.
"Cable was more difficult than Thanos. Although it was fun, it was more difficult. That was more of a commercial transaction, it was more… We have to do this like this. I didn't feel that way about the Avengers. With those directors, they would constantly come back and make references to The Price of Power (1983) or Dog's Afternoon (1975). Whether it was manipulation or not, they knew what to throw away to make it inspiring. "
Josh Brolin could return with either character. Although Thanos has died (2 times), we know perfectly well that death is not the end in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but that they tell Loki. While Cable could be in Deadpool 3, a film that in theory continues and that will be released in the coming years.
