News culture Dune versus Avengers (Marvel): A Hollywood actor explains the difference between these two films
Accustomed to Hollywood blockbusters for several years, actor Josh Brolin appeared in the cast of Deadpool 2, Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame or, more recently, the adaptation of Dune by director Denis Villeneuve. During the film’s advertising campaign, the actor confided in these two films in particular.
Currently seen on Dune, alongside Zendaya, Jason Momoa, Oscar Isaac and the Youngster Modders … Uh, sorry actor Timothée Chalamet, Josh Brolin offers himself up for the game of interviews, trusting in particular the significant differences between the shooting of Dune, which is currently a huge hit both in our cinemas and across the Atlantic, and that of Marvel’s Avengers films .
Consistency for Dune, twists and turns for Avengers
After giving his traits to the character of Cable in Deadpool, then Thanos in the last two Avengers parts, Josh Brolin returns to Dune to play the character of Gurney Halleck. The latter is also full of praise for Denis Villeneuve’s film. : « It really is a cinematic masterpiece that he (Denis Villeneuve) was able to create and organize with all these characters and give them a place, but above all to preserve the story and do it justice
Overall, he was very excited about the opportunity to play in both productions. According to him, none of them are necessarily better than the other, but each has their own particularities and strengths that have made it possible for them to enjoy filming.. In particular, he emphasized that it was easier to work on a project based on a novel.
Everything is included at Dune. You have a book, you have abundant original material, it’s pretty hard to hide, even though it’s a very faithful adaptation. There are things that are adapted, things that are what they are, others that were created. And that’s all handy, you’re in the middle of huge sets, the production design was huge while Marvel is left a bit of your imagination (to do its job), both are equally fascinating and deserve a lot of attention but are very different. – Josh Brolin, interpreter of Gurney Halleck in Dune
Aside from stimulating the actors’ imaginations, unlike Dune, Marvel films tend to change a lot of details during filming, so some plot elements are sometimes unfamiliar to the actors when they are being filmed. Still, Josh Brolin points out that for actors, MCU movies are blessed with some really surprising twists and turns, unlike Dune who went to great lengths to carefully adapt Frank Herbert’s work.
