It’s been a hot minute, Deadpool. Bullets may go right through you, but fans have a hollow hole in our hearts without Ryan Reynolds’ razor-sharp sarcasm as his iconic anti-hero. It’s been over a year since the massive success of Deadpool 2 and plans for another sequel haven’t yet been revealed. However, the actor does have a behind-the-scenes quip to share with us while on set with Josh Brolin. Check it out:
Amazing! Ryan Reynolds took to Instagram to share a hilarious moment of him and Josh Brolin having a lively conversation just before Dopinder’s cab races loudly into the background. The Deadpool star wrote “in fairness, Waze always finds the shortest route to work” in the caption. A much needed dose of the Merc with a Mouth during this long drought!
Ryan Reynolds’ famous friends had fun with the post, too. Karan Soni, who plays Dopinder in the Deadpool movies commented with “the lengths I go to get your attention” and artist BossLogic said “That is an Uber in LA”. Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld flooded the comments twice with “Not pictured - the box that Ryan is standing on in order to tower over Josh!” and “My plane was late and I paid the driver extra to get me to set on time!! Sorry!”
Despite the tall stature of Josh Brolin’s Thanos in the Avengers films, the actor is shorter than Ryan Reynolds (Brolin 5’10” and Reynolds 6’2”). The two stars certainly had tons of comedic chemistry in Deadpool 2, as Cable was introduced to the big screen and ended up being part of Wade Wilson’s X-Force misfits by the end of the movie.
Now that Josh Brolin is all finished terrorizing the MCU as their greatest enemy in Infinity War and Endgame, we would love to see him continue his role as Cable in Deadpool 3. Only problem is a threequel has yet to be announced. This is likely because Disney acquired Fox earlier this year and Kevin Feige is working out how to bring in the mutants into his established universe.
Currently, Fox’s rated-R Deadpool franchise doesn’t exactly match Disney’s brand. Deadpool 2 director has discussed that the third film could go PG-13 for this reason. However, Marvel chief Kevin Feige has also said the character will not be censored because the studio has a “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” attitude about its newly acquired properties.
Considering the record-breaking success Deadpool has found on the big screen, a sequel is sure to happen – it’ll just be a longer wait! Until then, Warner Bros is trying out subverting the comic book genre with an R-rated origin with Joker. The drama starring Joaquin Phoenix is currently tracking at an $100 million opening weekend, on October 4.
