With the recent success of movies like Logan and Deadpool, we have entered a brave new world of riskier superhero films. That trend will likely continue when the highly anticipated Deadpool 2 debuts next year, and our excitement for the project has been compounded by the fact that Josh Brolin will step into the boots of Nate "Cable" Summers to bring the fan-favorite mutant to life. Brolin himself seems pretty excited about the opportunity to face off against Ryan Reynolds in the upcoming project, and he used some downtime while sitting in his make-up chair to call Reynolds out on social media. Check it out, below.

There's more to the life of a movie star than red carpets and awards ceremonies, and that picture pretty much sums up the uglier side of working in a big-budget blockbuster. Josh Brolin is currently in the process of getting ready to portray Thanos in The Avengers: Infinity War in addition to preparing for his role as Cable, but he took a moment during the molding of a big, purple plaster cast to poke some fun at Ryan Reynolds ahead of his work on Deadpool 2. Specifically, he takes the time to include "#ryanreynoldsismybitch" in the caption section of the photo -- suggesting the distinct possibility that Wade Wilson and Cable will not have the friendliest relationship when Deadpool 2 finally debuts next year.

Of course, ever the social media maven, Ryan Reynolds hasn't exactly stayed silent surrounding the recent casting of Josh Brolin as Cable in Deadpool 2. He has thrown out plenty of barbs of his own, thus ensuring that the Reynolds-Brolin rivalry will likely become one of our favorite online feuds for the foreseeable future. Check out one of Reynolds' recent posts below.

Josh Brolin's casting as Cable for Deadpool 2 is already an inspired decision by 20th Century Fox, but it is made even more bizarre by the fact that Wade Wilson actually has a notable connection with Thanos in the comics. Deadpool and Thanos both have romantic relationships with Lady Death (who hasn't appeared in live-action but may be replaced by Cate Blanchett's Hela in Thor: Ragnarok), and their love triangle has become one of the weirdest (as well as one of the coolest) aspects of the entire Marvel universe. Thanos and Deadpool are obviously part of two very different cinematic worlds right now. That said, if 20th Century Fox and Marvel Studios ever come to a Spider-Man-esque agreement over how to share Marvel characters, there's no denying that seeing Josh Brolin's version of Thanos make Ryan Reynolds' Wade Wilson his "bitch" would be fantastic.

One thing is clear right now: Josh Brolin is gradually beginning to corner the market on superhero movie universes. He will once again appear as Thanos when The Avengers: Infinity War makes its theatrical debut on May 4, 2018, and Deadpool 2 is currently set to premiere sometime in 2018 as well.
