Josh Brolin Hangs Out With A Mini-Wade On Deadpool 2 Set

Josh Brolin apparently has a cute nickname for Ryan Reynolds on the Deadpool 2 set. Reynolds shared a joking photo from filming on his Twitter Tuesday, showing Brolin hanging out with a kid in a Deadpool costume. "Josh Brolin and I love to just hang out and chat between takes," he captioned it. "He calls me his lil' Shake Weight™."

Reynolds shared the pic just a day after he blew up social media with the first images of Brolin in costume as Cable, the time traveling mutant he will debut in the upcoming sequel. Brolin landed the part after an exhaustive casting process that went through quite a few veteran actors, including Michael Shannon, David Harbour, and Brad Pitt. The actor has since been bulking up for the role, and once again showed off his impressive muscles in Reynolds' latest set photo.

Brolin previously said that he thinks that Deadpool 2 is even funnier than the first film, saying that there are a lot of surprises that will be "very satisfying" for fans. "Cable can be very funny," he said of his highly-anticipated character. "He can be a lot of different things, but he also can be very funny." 

Brolin and Reynolds will also be joined in the sequel by Atlanta's Zazie Beetz, who will play the mutant Domino. Other new cast members include The Strain's Jack Kesy as the villain, who many believe is Black Tom, a mutant who can fire concussive blasts using a wooden object and who can manipulate energy through plants, and The Outsider's Shioli Kutsuna in an undisclosed "key role." Hunt for the Wilderpeople breakout Julian Dennison is also a part of the cast.

In addition to Reynolds, the movie will also see the return of a few other notable actors from the first movie, including T.J. Miller's Weasel, Morena Baccarin's Vanessa, Brianna Hildebrand's Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Stefan Kapacic's Colossus, Leslie Uggams' Blind Al, and Karan Soni's Dopinder. David Leitch takes over as director for Tim Miller, working off a script from the first movie's Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. The movie is set for a June 1, 2018 release; in the meantime, see why the finished product will blow everyone away.
