We think it's safe to go ahead and call it -- Summer 2018 is the summer of Josh Brolin. Not only has he ascended to the ranks of one of the best cinematic villains of all time with his portrayal of the Mad Titan Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, but he's also starring as yet another Marvel icon, the futuristic cyborg anti-hero known as Cable in the upcoming Deadpool 2. And if early reactions are to be believed, he kicks ass in that role as well. Brolin has become perhaps the first actor to successfully inhabit two major iconic characters from the Marvel Universe.
In tribute to Brolin's two Marvelous performances this summer, we've learned, via Geeks Are Sexy, about a sculptor named Steven Richter, who had decided to combine both the Thanos and Cable characters in his latest bust. While the jury is still out on who this character resembles more, Thanos or Cable, it's nevertheless a mighty impressive work of art. In the video up above, you can see a timelapse of the sculpting process for his ultimate Marvel mash up character...who also kind of looks like a really weird pirate?? We're just sayin.'
If you check out Richter's YouTube channel, you can see several more of his amazing busts, including movie accurate pieces showcasing the Hulk, Chewbacca, and a non Cable-ized Thanos with his Infinity Gauntlet. He even has a Breaking Bad/Walter White head sculpture that is eerily accurate to actor Bryan Cranston. Although maybe our favorite thing he's made is the Ghostbusters proton pack wall clock. Because who doesn't want one of those??
