It’s Josh Brolin’s birthday, and in true Deadpool fashion, the marketing team has come up with this fun photo poking fun at Brolin and his Goonies days.
Check it out:
This isn’t the first Goonies reference spotted in Deadpool 2 marketing either. If you look closely at the trailer where Blind Al and Wade meet Cable, Wade is actually wearing the same flowery shirt that Chunk wears in the Goonies. I bet the fact that Brolin is in that movie is also the reason why they chose to have the shirt in the scene.
If Deadpool can be praised, for one thing, it’s definitely the fantastic marketing. The way the character is so ridiculous and fun also provide every opportunity for the marketing team to be creative with how they advertise the film. It also helps that Ryan Reynolds himself has a fantastic sense of humor.
Everyone is excited to see Cable come to life in the Deadpool sequel, and with Marvel Fox soon to fuse with the MCU, I bet Wade will be poking fun of Brolin for playing both Cable and Thanos. Then again, I think Thanos will be long dead by the time Deadpool joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
I’m just hoping Kevin Feige proves me wrong. I hate predicting movie plots correctly.
