Ever since Josh Brolin was announced as “Deadpool 2’s” Cable, some fans have been wondering if there would be any tension about an actor accepting roles in both Marvel Studios and Fox’s superhero film universes.
Fortunately, according to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, it’s not even an issue. Speaking recently with The Hollywood Reporter, Feige said, “We don’t have anything written into our contracts about other roles that people can do… Indiana Jones and Han Solo are the same person… it hasn’t been a problem. And I think Thanos and Cable are two very different characters.”
Feige isn’t the the only person to have addressed Brolin’s universe-crossing roles. As soon as news of the actor’s involvement in “Deadpool 2” became public, Ryan Reynolds joked about the situation on his Twitter feed.
Of course, what no-one is talking about is how Brolin’s role as Dwight in that other comic book-to-film adaptation, “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,” will impact either his “Avengers” or “Deadpool 2” roles, not to mention his turn as Jonah Hex…
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, and starring Josh Brolin and much of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, “Avengers: Infinity War” arrives in cinemas May 4, 2018.
Directed by “John Wick’s” David Leith and starring Ryan Reynolds, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, Karan Soni, Zazie Beetz and Josh Brolin, “Deadpool 2” is also due to arrive in theaters in 2018.
