"There's a lot of stuff going on in Deadpool and it's very surprising and it will be very satisfying when you see it", Brolin continued about the film. The two franchises don't interact, but the Merc With a Mouth breaks the fourth wall so much that it seemed nearly a given that he'd mention how the same dude is playing two characters, right?

With the ongoing hashtag battle between the Cable actor and Deadpool's Ryan Reynolds reaching an all time high (or low?), the comedy timing and punch dialogues will be worth the wait.

Does Cable talk about Thanos in new @deadpoolmovie? "Not yet, not yet", Brolin said. "Again, I may. I don't know".

Although Brolin's Thanos won't be part of Deadpool 2 he's going to be a major part of the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War.

In fact, it's because Deadpool 2 is so amusing that an initially hesitant Brolin took the part in the first place.

"It's not that I don't break the fourth wall. He can be a lot of different things but he also can be very amusing", the actor said of his character who, despite having a serious demeanor, still has a sense of humor to keep up with the wacky antics of Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool.

Revealing more about Deadpool 2's guarded script, the actor admitted that the sequel is funnier than the first one. When they asked me to do it, I was like 'I'm doing the Thanos thing right now, and should I do it?' And my wife just said 'Read it.

Brolin was cast as Cable in April.

The film will be released on June 1, 2018.
