Quietly, the "Team" is killing it. It takes a small village: @justindlovato at @iambuilt, Jonathon Phillips @hbmaxmuscle, @goldsgym and some discipline. Just saw @davebautista at the gym and he said: "What the f*ck happened to you?!" Haha. Best compliment ever. Totally clean: no sugar, no breads, no pastas, no drugs, none of it. Fish, rice, eggs, veggies, water, one @bulletproof or @cavemancoffeeco in the morning. I'm almost 50. It's a different time: our access along with some big picture discipline results in always surprising milestones. Get on the train. #wedontfuckaround. #itaintthathard #startslowandlight @weprevail #ryanreynoldsismybitch
Unless you're bitten by a radioactive spider or injected with the super-solider serum, you're not going get a superhero physique overnight. You have to work at it, and that is exactly what Josh Brolin has been doing.
Since getting cast to play Cable in Deadpool 2 two months ago, Brolin has been hitting the gym extremely hard in order to look like the bionic-armed, straight-faced, time-traveling mutant. And in that time, Brolin has shared a handful of images of his extraordinary progress.
However today, he has shared a workout video that features the noticeable and impressive bulging muscles and veins he has achieved from weight training and eating clean foods. As for the workout itself, Brolin does seated hammer curls.
"The 'Team' is killing it. It takes a small village: [Justin Lovato] at [I Am Built], Jonathon Phillips [at Huntington Beach Max Muscle], [Gold's Gym] and some discipline," Brolin caption the video. "Just saw [Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista] at the gym and he said: 'What the f*ck happened to you?!' Haha. Best compliment ever. Totally clean: no sugar, no breads, no pastas, no drugs, none of it. Fish, rice, eggs, veggies, water, one Bulletproof or Caveman coffee in the morning. I'm almost 50. It's a different time: our access along with some big picture discipline results in always surprising milestones. Get on the train."
Hinting at the on-screen animosity to come, Brolin added the hashtag: "#ryanreynoldsismybitch."
Providing another look at his Cable hairstyle and giving us fans of The Goonies a good laugh, Brolin also posted a photo of himself dressed again as Brand, Mikey's buff older brother. Why'd he do it? A friend of his had an '80s-themed birthday party. And since he didn't know what to wear, his wife suggested he embrace his very first role, so he did.
The Deadpool sequel, which is being directed by David Leitch (John Wick, Atomic Blonde) and written by Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, is currently in pre-production and is expected to begin filming at the end of this spring. The film will introduce Deadpool's time-traveling mutant partner Cable, who is being played by Men In Black 3 star Josh Brolin; and X-Force member Domino, who is being portrayed by Atlanta actress Zazie Beetz. Supporting characters from the original film — such as Colossus (voiced by Stefan Kapicic), Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), taxi driver Dopinder (Karan Soni), and Wade Wilson's love interest Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) — are also expected to return.
Deadpool 2 will arrive in theater in 2018.
