It seems like Josh Brolin is everywhere this year. First, he brought destruction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Thanos in the box office juggernaut Avengers: Infinity War in April. Brolin is also lending his acting chops to the follow-up of the 2016 surprise hit _Deadpool when he stars as the time-traveling baddie Cable in Deadpool 2 in May.
But perhaps his most notable, albeit random, appearance in pop culture this year will be in the free-to-play online multiplayer battle royale video game Fortnite, where his likeness as the Mad Titan Thanos can be used as a limited character with a mad set of skills... both in action and on the dance floor.
Fortnite recently introduced a special, limited Infinity War theme to its online servers in honor of the blockbuster, which allows one player to become the Mad Titan and run amok on the other competitors, according to Gamespot.
Though many players have become frustrated with their failed attempts at playing as Thanos, Gamespot reported that those who have been lucky enough to play as Thanos have found he's capable of doing such things as eating popcorn, dancing, and even playing guitar.
Brolin told IGN that while the dancing, air guitar playing, and menacing baddie is featured in Fortnite, Brolin had no involvement in the crossover event.
"So, I've been seeing this Fortnite thing everywhere," said Brolin. "I kept hearing about Fortnite and Thanos and I had no idea what everyone was talking about."
During the interview, Brolin was showed in-game clips of Thanos showing off dance moves in action, who he described as "Michael 'Thanos' Jackson."
Though he found humor in the displays of fortitude, Brolin still didn't understand why the Mad Titan would take time away from his quest of bringing balance to the universe with balanced dance moves.
"Why is he dancing? I just don't understand."
Brolin provided a motion capture performance for his role in Infinity War, but he jokingly expressed his wish that Epic Games, the creators of Fortnite, would have contacted him to reprise his role in the game.
I wish I had done the mobcap for that," Brolin said. "Then I would have done a good dance move. I'm good at dancing, by the way."
Brolin's move of choice: "I spin on my back with my legs flying up in the air."
