‘Deadpool 2’: Josh Brolin Brutally Compares DC To Marvel: ‘Total Failure & Massive Success’

Deadpool 2 Cable Josh Brolin Set PicWhile promoting Deadpool 2 in Germany, Josh Brolin, who plays Cable in the film, offered a brutally honest opinion on the difference between Marvel and DC.

Brolin, who also starred as the title character in Jonah Hex, is no stranger to comic book movies. Having starred in Jonah Hex in Jonah Hex for DC and being in two Marvel movies this year, the actor was asked about the difference between his DC experience and his time working on Avengers: Infinity War and Deadpool 2. His response was brief, but painted a pretty clear picture:

“Total failure and massive success.”

As you may have guessed by that quote, Jonah Hex was a commercial and critical failure. Brolin has yet to return to a DC film and judging by this comment and it’s doubtful that he ever will. It also doesn’t hurt that his role in Infinity War has garnered him a ton of praise from both fans and critics. Early reactions to Deadpool 2 seem to express a similar enthusiasm for his take on Cable.

So, what do you think? Anyone out that harboring some unspoken love for Jonah Hex? Let us know down in the comments!

After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.

Directed by David Leitch, the film stars Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson/Deadpool, Zazie Beetz as Domino, Josh Brolin as Nathan Summers/Cable, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Stefan Kapcic as Piotr Rasputin/Colossus, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa Carlysle, T.J. Miller as Weasel, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al,  and Karan Soni as Dopinder. Julian Dennison, Jack Kesy and Shioli Kutsuna join the cast in undisclosed roles.

Deadpool 2 will be released in theaters on May 18, 2018.

20 Marvel Movies That Could Be Made After Disney’s Fox Acquisition

Previous1 of 21

Avengers X-Men Fox Disney Marvel Crossover MCUSo the impossible has happened: Fox and Disney have recently agreed to a major deal, one which means that — aside from a few limitations with the Hulk and Spider-Man, who have their rights wrapped up with Universal Pictures and Sony Pictures — every major Marvel property will soon be able to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While the plans for the remainder of Phase 3 likely won’t change that much, barring possible post-credits scenes showing major cameos being added on short notice, this development certainly gives Marvel an embarrassment of riches to work with for future film adaptations.

Since Marvel Studios had previously claimed that they have an outline for the next 20 movies they’ll make without the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, or any of their associated characters, I thought it would be best to similarly go all-out and suggest 20 more for the heck of it.

Here are, in no particular order, 20 movies that Marvel should think about making with a complete MCU at their fingertips. Click Next to get started!
