Josh Brolin and Chris Hemsworth shared an amusing moment while watching "Infinity War."
Thanos, as depicted by actor Josh Brolin, has developed a loyal fanbase. Even though he's responsible for the "death" of several prominent Marvel heroes, including Spider-Man, Dr. Strange, Drax, and Black Panther, many have gravitated toward Brolin's nuanced and emotional depiction of "The Mad Titan." So much so that there are likely some actively rooting for his continued existence in the upcoming Avengers: Endgame. In any case, Thanos' snap in Avengers: Infinity War has become one of the most iconic moments in blockbuster history, and actor Josh Brolin recently reflected on witnessing the whole thing come together for the first time.

Speaking with Empire Magazine for an Endgame-themed cover story, Brolin opened up about witnessing his character's masterstroke at work. From the sound of it, it doesn't appear that Brolin was aware of sheer destruction he was about to wreak. It actually makes sense that he would be kept in the dark vis-a-vis the snap's effects, given the secrecy with which the Russo brothers operate.
"I'm at the premiere, watching the movie. Everybody starts disintegrating. I go, 'What the f**k?," explains Brolin. "I look over at Hemsworth and he does a cutthroat motion, like, 'You're going to be the most hated person on this planet.'" Alongside his amusing reaction, Brolin offers his thoughts on Thanos' newfound lot in life: being a corn farmer. "The Second movie is more about corn than anything," reflects Brolin. "Ultimately like beans, but it starts with corn...[the movie] may just be him Colonel Kurtzing it, watching the corn grow. "
Avengers: Endgame hits theatres April 26th.
