Actor Josh Brolin was nervous about playing Thanos in 'The Guardians of the Galaxy'

Josh Brolin was nervous about playing Thanos.

The 46-year-old actor has admitted to feeling under pressure while portraying the super villain in the Marvel film franchise.

Recalling his nerves, Josh - who voices the CGI enhanced character in 'The Guardians of the Galaxy' - shared: "I was more nervous doing that than I think I've been in long time. I was in front of 32 little cameras and I had a face sprayed with iridescent paint. It's really exciting, the possibilities of what it could become."

Josh also hinted that his villainous character will face yet more problems in the 2018 movie 'Avengers: Infinity War - Part I'.

He told "Ultimately it's Thanos against everyone."

The veteran actor - who has previously starred in 'No Country for Old Men' and 'The Goonies' - explained how he doesn't limit himself to a specific genre and prefers to look at each project individually before he signs up.

Josh shared: "I don't have a thing like, 'I only do small art films' or 'I only do this.' I just read a story and go, 'Wow. That's cool.' It's not, 'I want to get into this genre or that genre.'

"So Thanos came along ... and I had a good friend Louis D'Esposito who is now the co-president of Marvel ... He called me up and started talking about this thing.

"It was nice because I could intimately talk to him about it. What I liked. What I didn't like about the whole idea of it. But I love the idea of Thanos."
