In a recent interview, Josh Brolin, aka Thanos, aka Cable revealed that he was inspired by a Ryan Reynolds movie for Deadpool 2.
Deadpool 2 is about to the hit theaters in less than two weeks, and we couldn’t be more excited for it. Everyone has much higher expectations from Deadpool after the first part being a humongous box office success. “Deadpool” became one of the 3 R-rated movies to cross the 300 million mark, making a whooping 363 million on the box office.
This Deadpool features a fresh new villain, Cable. And he is played by none other than Josh Brolin. Brolin has already impressed everyone by his role as Thanos. He was one Marvel villain that we needed. However, we have to see how his chemistry goes with Ryan Reynolds.
Infinity War was a very emotional and dark movie. Deadpool is the complete opposite of it. Deadpool is a movie full of action, killings and humor. And not to forget, very very dark humor and a lot of fourth wall breaking. Not only this, Thanos was a very popular villain for the fans. Cable is someone who is not so popular. So this is going to be a bit more difficult for Brolin to impress the fans.
Coming to our topic, the movie which inspired Brolin is Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock starring The Proposal (2009). Brolin revealed this secret to Entertainment Weekly. He said that he became of fan of Ryan Reynolds from the moment he saw that rom-com. He said he always wanted to work with Reynolds on the big screen.
“I was a secret fan of The Proposal, having watched it several times by myself. I told Ryan. I was like, ‘I don’t know why this is, and I don’t know what this means psychologically, behaviorally, emotionally, but I have kind of a crush on you.”
We don’t know how Ryan would have reacted to this, but Deadpool would have loved it for sure. But wait, Reynolds also had something to say about Brolin.
“He’s mentioned it many times, which is weird to me because he’s so tough. I would just never imagine that. Like, he pretends he’s, like, all sort of New Agey sometimes and all this stuff, but deep down inside I just think his heart is made of some, like, jagged chunk of Yosemite granite. I don’t buy that underneath all this textured skin is a sweet little angel that loves romantic comedies. I don’t buy it. Not for a second.”
