First Images Of Josh Brolin In ‘Jonah Hex’ Appear Online

While films like “Green Lantern” and “Thor” are still searching for their leading actors (even though Chris Hemsworth has allegedly scored the part in the latter of those two), the in-production DC Comics adaptation “Jonah Hex” has been so scarce on the details that we were beginning to wonder if Josh Brolin was really in the film at all.

Well, wonder no more. A trio of images have popped up around the ’Net that show Brolin in full-on “Jonah Hex” gear, complete with all the scars, snarls and six-shooters you’d expect from the ex-confederate bounty hunter.

Lainey Gossip has posted all three of the images, but here’s a peek:

Our favorite part about the photos? The obvious blood-splatter on Hex’s vest. Sure, those could be stains from an incident prior to the movie’s events, but we’re guessing that Jonah’s going to get his hands dirty on-screen — or we hope so, at least.

Also noteworthy are the various background characters depicted in these photographs. Casting notices for carny-like New Orleans extras circulated a while ago, and it looks like the “Hex” production team received some very authentic callbacks.

This first glimpse of Brolin as Hex come after two different waves of images showing Megan Fox in her as-yet-named role in the film. With two of the lead characters officially revealed, it’s only a matter of time before we see John Malkovich, Will Arnett and Michael Shannon in their roles as a villainous voodoo priest, a Union soldier and circus group leader Doc Cross Williams, respectively.
