Great casting choice! I wonder how long he'll be in the movie.

It's an awesome choice and I'm looking forward to seeing his performance as Thanos.

I'm guessing that he'll be in the mid-credits scene of A:AoU.

Itll be cool to see what his personality is like. Will he be the typical guy who sits on his throne and acts like a cruel emperor and doesnt talk a lot or will he be more like a damaged figure who has twisted, tragic qualities and speaks more freely?

Josh Brolin is super talented so I like this. I'm very curious as to how they will do his voice. How much alteration and what no they will do to it. Will they do the almost poetic version from the 90's cartoons or something much more menacing. Maybe it is me but Thanos has never had an "iconic" sound like Michael Ironside's Darkseid so I am really looking forward to where they take it.

People may rag on Marvel Studios for not always having the best villains, but with Tom Hiddleston's wonderful performance as Loki in the first film, James Spader as Ultron in the second and most likely Josh Brolin as Thanos in the third of the trilogy, The Avengers films at least have a formidable roster of bad guys lined up.

People can suck it if they didn't like TWS. I couldn't get enough of him.

To be honest, I have liked Marvel's villains more than many seem to. As you mention, The Winter Soldier is great. Also enjoyed the dynamic of the other villains in the film - I don't know the etiquette for spoiling that yet, so I won't go into specifics.

Over in the Iron Man series, you had the great Jeff Bridges as the villain in the first film, and I found his Obidiah Stane to be an enjoyably menacing presence. While people focus on how underdeveloped Vanko was in the second film, Sam Rockwell was as great as he is in everything as Justin Hammer. And for Iron Man 3, I think people's disappointment over The Mandarin may have clouded their perception of Guy Pearce's Killian being a compelling villain in his own right, with one of the best evil schemes of any MCU villain.

Of course, the Thor series has Loki. Even in Incredible Hulk, I liked Blonsky, though funnily enough I found him to be more compelling as Tim Roth than as a big CGI creation.

Awesome. BvS missed out on casting him for Bats.

He's the right guy for Thanos I think. Odd that I think he'd've made a good Batman and a good Thanos.

Justin Hammer and Aldrich Killian are pretty underrated i feel.

Hammer being a wannabe Tony Stark was a great idea. And they fleshed him out in small but impressive ways. Just the little facial ticks Rockwell did in certain moments. The touch of him applying so much fake tan it stained his hands. He was like one of those try hard pretentious a-holes that was completely out of his depth.

And i loved the whole Mandarin plot with Killian. A great allegory to what happens in the real world. Manufactured terrorist threats. Imagine if Osama Bin Laden was created by the US? It baffles me when i see people say he just wanted revenge on Stark. It's like they watched a different film.

Malekith was ****ing terrible though.

Yessir. And on top of all that, despite being underdeveloped:
Hugo Weaving was great as Red Skull.
Chris Eccleston was solid as Malekith.
Toby Jones was a good Arnim Zola.
etc.

Just because they don't get as much screentime as the heroes, doesn't mean they are complete failures. Not every villain needs to be Ledger's Joker.

If the third Avengers film does take cues from The Infinity Gauntlet, it could be interesting to see Loki fill the Mephisto role in that story: ostensibly Thanos' flattering right-hand man, but secretly plotting the double-cross and biding his time for the right moment.
