Thanos = God?

I had a thought while sitting in the shitter an hour ago. Josh Brolin's computer-altered voice, when he played Thanos, sounded an awful lot like the voice of God from Cecil B. DeMille's "The Ten Commandments." Listen for yourself:

Thanos, discoursing.

The theophany scene in "The Ten Commandments." (What's a theophany?)

Take Brolin's voice, slow it down* and add some reverb to it, and it's basically God talking to Charlton Heston. Someone should inappropriately overdub Thanos onto those Heston scenes. "If life is left unchecked, life will cease to exist." Take that, Moses.

Convinced? Doubtful? What do you think?

*You can go to "Settings" on any given YouTube video and alter the playback speed. Reduce the Thanos scenes to 0.5 speed, then imagine the reverb. Sure, the voice might need to be a bit deeper, but Thanos and God overlap by a lot in my head.

I had forgotten how ridiculous the idea of Charlton Heston as Moses was.

I enjoyed Jim Carrey's impressions of Heston.

Ever see the animated "Prince of Egypt," with Val Kilmer voicing both Moses and God? I admit I kinda' like that version of the story, singing and all.

That was Val Kilmer? Holy crap, I had no idea.
