Thanos could a return in the Marvel Cinematic Universe "MCU".

Josh Brolin served as the antagonist of the Avengers movies "Infinity War" and "Endgame". 

He also recently reprised the role by voicing Thanos variants in the second season of the animated series "What If...?" on Disney+.

Speaking with ComicBook, the actor to addressed the possibility of Thanos returning. 

Brolin teased how he's heard chatter about his live-action Thanos returning and noted how that's separate from the animated variants. 

He also commented on learning that Thanos has officially been killed off in the MCU more than any other villain.

"You know, I hear kind of like through the grapevine that they're gonna bring him back," Brolin said. "And there's the What If...? series, and that's a different kind of Thanos and all that. But I don't know in the Marvel world whether they're going to bring him back, but I didn't know that he was the most killed-off Marvel villain ... You learn something new every day."

With the many deaths of Thanos, the numbers add up when they're broken down. He technically died twice in "Avengers: Endgame", then multiple variants have been killed off in "What If...?" series, as well as the multiverse-traversing sequel movie "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness". 

With Marvel further exploring the MCU's multiverse, the door seems to be wide open for Brolin to return as Thanos once again on the big screen.

"We've kind of bookended this thing after 10 years," Brolin previously said of his run as Thanos with "Avengers: Endgame".

"I was so happy, and I loved being involved in [the Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame] so much because that wasn't the intention when I first got involved. The whole Thanos character, it was more of a cameo and they liked the character so much," he said. "They had never felt like they had a villain that was substantial enough for what they were creating and then I think they felt like they found it and then there were two movies that kind of revolved around it. It was a lot of fun and it worked out for them very nicely."
