Another day, another Rian Johnson explanation. Sorry, I mean, another day, another fun installment into the Deadpool 2 marketing campaign. Though it isn’t actually from the campaign, it fits in incredibly well.
A few days ago, a photo surfaced on Ryan Reynolds’ Facebook page that showed Deadpool painting a portrait of Cable, except he was really painting Josh Brolin’s character Bran Walsh from the classic 80s film, The Goonies.
A fan took that idea and threw it in reverse. Have a look:
As you can see above, we have Josh Brolin’s Cable taking his turn that comes to us in the form of an Instagram post from user and photoshopper houseofmat. The photo shows Cable painting a portrait of Deadpool, but its the version of the character from X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
You guys remember that awful version of the character, right? For some reason, Fox thought it would be a good idea to take a character nicknamed The Merc with the Mouth, and make it so he couldn’t speak. Seriously, who does that (editor’s note: Fox)?
Cable definitely takes it up a level, as the version of Deadpool he chose is a bad representation of the character, as opposed to Deadpool paying a heartfelt homage to one of Brolin’s more beloved roles.
Deadpool 2 will be a part of a magnificent movie May, that will be kicked off by Avengers: Infinity War, and also includes Solo: A Star Wars Story.
