The actor who plays Thanos knows that Thanos ass is distractingly good.
After sharing a picture of Thanos’ bare butt on Instagram yesterday, actor Josh Brolin acknowledged Thanos’ ample backside in an interview with Variety at the Avengers: Endgame premiere.
Thanos’ plump purple posterior came up when Brolin was asked about the circulating internet theory that Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man will defeat Thanos by shrinking down to the size of an ant, crawling into his butt, and expanding until Thanos splits open.
“Did you see what I posted today? That’s a peach, man, that’s a peach,” Brolin said. “That’s a purple peach if I’ve ever seen one, that’s a beautiful, purple peach.”
Brolin’s Instagram post made reference to the meme with the hashtag #powerliftingantmansquish and the actor has also made references to it before with the hashtag #flushantman, according to Variety.
Brolin also spoke to Variety about what it’s like to play Thanos.
“It’s fun, man,” he said. “The thing is, you thought, or at least I thought, it’s like a voiceover and it’s not. Everything was practical, every scene was with everybody who I had scenes with. They got the little idiosyncrasies, which were all stuff that we created. It’s a character that turned out to be sympathetic that nobody thought would be sympathetic and that was really nice. It turned into a multi-dimensional character and nobody thought it was supposed to be.”
The obsession with Thanos’ butt is no surprise given how the internet had collectively decided that Thanos was Daddy AF in Avengers: Infinity War.
*I make Thanos a cup of tea and he takes a sip*
Thanos: Perfectly balanced... as all things should be.
Me: Thanks, Thanos.

My main takeaway from Infinity War is that Thanos was kinda hot?

Hopefully, fans will get a flash of Thanos’ bulging behind when Avengers: Endgame premiers on Friday, April 26.
