LOS ANGELES, May 30 (UPI) -- Josh Brolin reportedly portrays Thanos in Guardians of the Galaxy.

Sources confirm the villain's role in the new movie, and report that Brolin voices the character. Marvel teases Thanos in the post credits of The Avengers, but he hasn't appeared in trailers or promotional material.
