Josh Brolin is very excited about their place in the Miracle Cinematic Universe wherever he’s playing Thanos, the particular villainous mastermind scheming to destroy World and The Avengers. He is not so excited about his first role in a comic book movie, 2010’s Jonah Hex, primarily based the DC Math comic strips character of the same name. Brolin did not mince words not too long ago when he said he or she “hated it.” And when you didn’t very understand how serious he was, he replicated it one more time. “Hated it.”
Brolin has been talking to Nerdist (via The Playlist) and explained, beyond the clear, his particular ground beef with this movie:
Oh, Jonah Hex, resented it. Hated the idea. The experience of making it — that could have been a better video based on what we did. As opposed to what ended up happening to it, that’s going back and reshooting Sixty six pages in 10 days and that being… Pay attention, I understand it’s financiers, you’re trying to save their money and it turns into a financial thing… I remember when I was talking to Warner Bros. about undertaking that movie, High Flatlands Drifter is what I wear the TV, I stated, ‘That’s what I will do.’ I would do that movie still ‘result in that’s the form of that movie that might have been successful, beyond doubt. And it didn’t should cost anything more than $8-$10 zillion.
Instead the film price about $80 million making a paltry $10 million at the box company.
Though DC and Warner Bros. were being hot to start creating their in-house comic characters (Iron Man and Iron Man 2 had already hit concert halls by the time Jonah Hex was released along with both Thor and Captain America were on the way), they gambled with Jonah Hex, a little-known character, as well as lost big. The work was in trouble just before it even started. Mark Neveldine and Bob Taylor (Crank) had signed to direct the film, but dropped away weeks before shooting was set to start. They were replaced by Jimmy Hayward, as their only previous pointing gig was the particular animated comedy Horton Hears a Who. Not exactly the match made in paradise. (Though considering what exactly Neveldine and Taylor did along with Ghost Rider perhaps their edition wouldn’t have been significantly better.)
Unfortunately the film misused a great cast. Other than Brolin, the film appeared Michael Fassbender, Megan Fox, Erina Shannon and John Malkovich. Probably there is/was a great Jonah Hex movie out there somewhere, however we didn’t visualize it then, and based on how poorly the film did, we won’big t ever see it all over again.
