During a recent interview on Good Morning America during the D23 Expo in Anaheim, Josh Brolin advised Deadpool 2 will be funnier than the first film. Brolin will portray Cable, which will be the first time the character has been seen in a live-action film.
He said: “There’s a lot of stuff going on in Deadpool that’s very surprising, and that will be very satisfying when you see it. To me it’s even funnier than the first one. That’s to me. When they asked me to do it, I was like, ‘Ah, I do Deadpool and I’m doing the Thanos thing right now, and should I do it?’ And my wife just said, ‘Read it. Why are you even thinking? Just read it.’ And I read it, and I laughed harder than I’ve laughed in a very long time. So, it’s funny. … Cable can be very funny. He can be a lot of different things, but he also can be very funny.”
The film is set to hit theaters June 1, 2018.
