Take one look at the summer 2018 movie release calendar and you’ll probably start to notice a recurring pattern – and no, we’re not referring to the onslaught of superhero films. Though that’s certainly there.
Instead, we kindly point you in the direction of Mr. Josh Brolin, who’s already defeated Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Infinity War, while Deadpool 2 steered the venerable actor into R-rated territory earlier this month – and to great success. Capping off his impressive hat-trick is Sicario: Day of the Soldado, which will see him reprise his role as FBI tough nut, Matt Graver. Look for that one to release on June 29th.
That’s exciting in and of itself, but on the superhero front, it’s fair to say that Brolin’s back-to-back performances as Thanos and the one-armed Cable have been stealing headlines left, right and center. And now, hoping to keep the hype train going, the much in demand actor has taken to Instagram to share a rather stunning piece of Infinity War fan art, which places the focus squarely on the Mad Titan and several of the heroes he killed

What’s cool about this is that each character represents one of the Infinity Stones. As you can see, we’ve got Loki as Space, Gamora as Soul, Vision as Mind, Doctor Strange as Time, Star-Lord as Power and Spider-Man as Reality – which is perhaps the only one that doesn’t quite make sense. Still, it’s a unique angle for the artist to take with this piece of work and makes for a visually interesting design.
Of course, this art also reminds us that having obtained all six Infinity Stones, the Mad Titan was eventually able to carry out the universal genocide he’d been talking about the entire movie. And so, with one snap of his giant, purple fingers, Thanos eviscerated half of all life in the cosmos, leaving only a skeleton crew of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes left to finish the fight in Avengers 4. How they’ll do that remains to be seen, of course, but if you’ve got any ideas of your own, feel free to share them in the comments section down below.
