From a US President to the Mad Titan, Josh Brolin has made a staggering variety of roles as his own. The gruff intensity that he brings to the table is balanced by the verve and nuance he portrays in all his roles. Brolin’s versatility is one of the primary reasons for his continued success and the reason for which he can reinvent himself so easily for the roles that he takes up at any given point of time.
Brolin was born in the posh beachfront city of Santa Monica, California to Jane Cameron, a wildlife activist, and James Brolin, an actor well known for his appearances on films and soap operas especially throughout the 1970s and 80s. Despite boasting of a strong artistic lineage, Brolin was hardly exposed much to his father’s career while growing up on a ranch. Brolin’s upbringing was quite unique; his friendship with a local surfing group made him look beyond his own life. He had experiences with crime; he stole cars; and drugs, most notably heroin, from a young age. Although he was saved from any serious mishap, he did witness the deaths of several of his friends from drug abuse.
Brolin’s first big break came in ‘The Goonies’, an adventure comedy film by Richard Donner, who is of course, renowned for directing the first modern superhero film in ‘Superman’ in 1978. After his second film ‘Thrashin’, Brolin took a self-imposed hiatus from films as he found his performance in the film to be horrendous. He took to the stage in Rochester, New York for a few roles and marked his return to films with a number of villainous roles, something prominent to this day. His major works include ‘W’, ‘No Country for Old Men’, ‘Milk’, and of course, the superhero movies ‘Deadpool 2’ and ‘Avengers: Infinity War.’
While Brolin does have a four-film arc for Cable planned out in the future, including the already released ‘Deadpool 2’, not much is known about those films except that he will return as the time travelling mutant, perhaps alongside more X-Men characters. At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Josh Brolin movie and TV show? Well, the good news is that we have a clear answer to that question. Here’s the list of upcoming Josh Brolin films/TV shows scheduled to release in 2019 and 2020. We can only hope that the latest Josh Brolin movies would be as good as some of his recent ones.
1. Avengers: Endgame (2019)
With the second trailer for ‘Avengers: Endgame’ dropping just a few hours ago, the hype is at its peak for arguably the most anticipated film of all time. We all know how it ended in last year’s epic ‘Infinity War’ with Brolin’s self-righteous Thanos wiping away half of all living creatures with one snap. In both the trailers released for the upcoming film, there has been no sight of our main culprit. Save for his armor, which now hangs like a foreboding scarecrow, Brolin has been nowhere near our sight.
