Matthew McConaughey Auditioning For Thanos Imagined In Viral TikTok

A new viral TikTok imagines what it would be like if Matthew McConaughey auditioned to play the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Mad Titan, Thanos.

A new viral TikTok imagines Matthew McConaughey auditioning to play the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Mad Titan, Thanos. Damion Poitier played Thanos in The Avengers’ (2012) credits scene before Josh Brolin took over the character in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014). Brolin’s Thanos then became the overarching villain of the MCU’s first three phases.

The Infinity Saga saw Thanos collect all six Infinity Stones so that he could snap his fingers and commit dispassionate genocide for what he considered the greater good. In Avengers: Infinity War (2018), despite the Avengers’ best efforts, Thanos succeeded in accomplishing his ultimate goal. To quote the Mad Titan, he was “inevitable.” As a result, Avengers: Endgame (2019) saw the Avengers travel through time to undo Thanos’ snap, bringing everyone back, and ridding the MCU of Thanos once and for all. While it’s hard to imagine anyone else but Brolin as Thanos throughout in those films, there’s a clip floating around online that makes a case for a very different portrayal.

McConaughey is one of the many actors who’s flirted with joining the MCU. As a childhood fan of Lou Ferrigno’s The Incredible Hulk, McConaughey wanted to play the enormous green rage monster. McConaughey has opened up about conveying that desire to Marvel Studio executives before the casting of Edward Norton in The Incredible Hulk (2008). On top of that, he was poised to play Ego the Living Planet in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Those talks went as far as inspiring official concept art with McConaughey in the role. He ultimately walked away from the role—which then went to Kurt Russell—so that he could star in The Dark Tower (2017).


As the MCU continues to expand, more and more top-tier talent joins its ranks. McConaughey has said he’d be open to joining a comic book universe if the script/role was right. A McConaughey villain is far from inevitable, but the above TikTok makes a hilarious, yet intriguing argument for just that. Disney+’s animated series, What If…?, has already made a habit of mocking Thanos. Who knows? If Conajam’s impression is seen by enough people, maybe a McConaughey-voiced Thanos variant will be introduced in the future.
