    It;ll be funny if he's Thanos because he's my top choice for Darkseid

    Could be Thanos definitely, DL says his role is for other Marvel movies as well.

    Judging from people's reactions on the idea of him playing Thanos and the fact he's build to be in multiple films, I'd have to say he's Thanos.

    I don't know anything about the guy. Anyone have any recommendations on his past work to show me why he's a good choice?

    Watch Traffic..he's amazing in that..he won an oscar for it as well. Also 21 grams with Sean Penn

    But to see how twisted he can be, watch Savages. he's so vile in it..best part of the movie by miles.

    Would be pretty amazing if he is in fact Thanos. Regardless, this is a great get for Marvel.

    I'd be fine with Rocket. Is there a reason no one has suggested this?

    Either way. Thanos, Rocket or friggin Bova the Cow. Great casting choice.

    Let me rephrase how excited I am.


    This is the best ****ING MCU casting since Ed Norton or maybe Sam Jackson!

    Wow. Marvel is just killing it in casting for this and their other movies. Obvious choice is Thanos but Marvel, with their track record, could easily make him someone else that works.

    I hope he's Thanos given the reception. Seems like anything smaller would be a waste of the actor now.

    It sucks how Deadline and the other trades aren't able to get the names of any of the casting anymore, or at least Marvel isn't letting them give it up.

    I love him in Soderbergh's two Che films. Also great in; Traffic, Usual Suspects, Snatch etc.

    Just a really great actor in general.

    Usual Suspects was his breakout role. But, really, go to IMDB and just pick a movie he's done. He was crazy in Fear and Loathing, disgusting (but good) in Sin City... He's definitely a highlight in almost any film he does, to be honest.

    This is just a ridonkulous get for Marvel.

    (And I wouldn't mind if he was Rocket Raccoon either...)

    Jackie Boy and Franky Four Fingers.


    Deserves any role Marvel gives him.

    After re-reading the story on Deadline, I'm not sure he's playing a villain, maybe a future hero Feige wants to use (Dr. Strange perhaps?)
