‘Deadpool 2’ Promos Have Got A Lot Weirder With Josh Brolin Naked With A Fish
| Last updated
With Deadpool 2 just days from finally being released to the public, the world can soon breathe a collective sigh at the idea of not being bombarded with teasers for the film.
In the weeks and months leading up to the premiere, Ryan Reynolds has given us trailers, collaborations with people like David Beckham, funny posts, interpretive dances to Celine Dion and plenty more.
But now it's time for other cast members to chuck up promos for the highly anticipated film. Josh Brolin, who plays the baddie Cable, has offered up his version and boy is it weird.
Brolin has appeared naked, caressing a fish with the most bizarre caption.
It goes like this: "In CANNES selling an idea I had called Lucky #7. It's a movie about me and a fish. It's a romance. I don't see why a man can't have a relationship with someone other than a woman or a man.
"I've always believed that film is about the spiritual condition, and everything living thing has a spirit. Remember there was Free Willy, and there was Black Beauty.
"This could be the premise for X-Force.
"Maybe it's a prequel before Cable gets sent to the future, before he comes back from the future into the past which is the present. #7: naked, lucky and in love.
"Watch Deadpool 2 on May 18 for a better understanding of what I'm bringing down."
If I wasn't confused before reading the caption, I certainly am now.
The link Brolin provides is for a UK website that tries to raise awareness for unsustainable fishing practices around the world. Sure, okay.
But then he's also pushing to make a film that sounds kind of similar to the Academy Award winning The Shape of Water while also pushing Deadpool 2. All in the space of a few lines - I can't keep up. I think we can all agree that Ryan Reynolds' posts were funnier, or at least coherent.
As the release date for Deadpool 2 gets closer reviewers have come back saying it's as epic as the hype has made it out to be.
Uproxx's Mike Ryan wrote: "Didn't like the first Deadpool. DEADPOOL 2 beat me into submission until I was actually enjoying myself. Also, it features my now favourite post-credit scene."
Collider's Steven Weintraub said: "Happy to report Deadpool 2 is a lot of fun and had me laughing beginning to end. Stuff after the credits is *awesome*. All the people added to the film were perfectly cast. Avoid spoilers. Always makes it a better experience."
Indiewire's Kate Erbland posted this: "I'll say this, it earns the hell out of that R rating. And the cameos. And the post-credit scenes."
Do we need to say more? The film is out in the UK on 15 May.
