Ryan Reynolds praises 'epic' Ca­ble in Dead­pool 2

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Ryan Reynolds has in­sisted Ca­ble will be "epic" in 'Dead­pool 2'. The 40year-old ac­tor will reprise his role as Wade Wil­son and his tit­u­lar al­ter ego in the up­com­ing se­quel to the pop­u­lar Mar­vel movie, and has promised fans they won't be dis­ap­pointed by the in­tro­duc­tion of the movie's an­tag­o­nist, who is played by Josh Brolin. Speak­ing to Fan­dango, Ryan said: "I think it's go­ing to be very in­ter­est­ing. I've spent this last week on the busi­ness end of many Josh Brolin punches. Both ver­bal and phys­i­cal and lit­eral and it's go­ing to be pretty fan­tas­tic. He's go­ing to be epic. He's go­ing to be an epic Ca­ble." Ryan's high praise comes just after the movie's di­rec­tor David Leitch said he "couldn't be hap­pier" with the cast­ing of Josh, 49, whilst speak­ing at San Diego Comic-Con last month. He said: "When he gra­ciously agreed to do the role, Ryan and I were through the roof; we love him. He's such a great ac­tor, he brings a hu­man­ity to Ca­ble, but he also has the depth of act­ing chops to hang with the com­edy when needed. He's bring­ing that char­ac­ter to life in the short 12 days we've been shoot­ing and I couldn't be hap­pier." Mean­while, T.J. Miller - who plays Dead­pool's best friend Weasel - teased that the sec­ond in­stall­ment won't fol­low the "same [story] in a dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tion" and will in­stead in­volve "dif­fer­ent stakes". He said: "It's not go­ing to be like 'Hang­over 2', it's not go­ing to be the same movie in a dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tion, for in­stance. It's got dif­fer­ent stakes, dif­fer­ent things hap­pen, some pretty tragic, dark things hap­pens in the first part of the film, in the be­gin­ning, and the rest of the film is kind of deal­ing with that, so that's in­ter­est­ing. But Weasel re­mains just ab­so­lutely the most self­ish in­di­vid­ual on the face of the planet." And the star even be­lieves 'Dead­pool 2' could be "fun­nier" than the first in­stall­ment, as he laughed so hard when read­ing the script that he "dropped an iPad in a pub­lic restaurant". T.J. said: "This in­stall­ment is go­ing to be more Weasel-icious than ever be­fore. I was cry­ing so hard laugh­ing that I dropped an iPad in a pub­lic restaurant when I was read­ing the script."
