The actor added “I saw that and was like, all right, that's the bar. This is not like bulls**t. The actor also confronted this is something one has to sink his teeth into conviction, embarrassment, and all this kind of stuff." Although in the movie,  Brolin plays the role of antagonist Thanos; whereas Benedict Cumberbatch is playing one of his arch rivals, Doctor Strange. While their two respective characters in the film may not have particularly cared for one another but Brolin revealed it was nothing but love between the two actors as Cumberbatch truly inspired him to take on the role of Thanos.
