“My wife tells me things happen. And he’s just a guy. So I think I can relate to him.”
How’s the film adapting to a younger audience?
“There’s so much stuff that’s going to be new. It’s about getting that tone back. I feel like the biggest challenge for Deadpool is to get back to that old-school feel. In the first one there was a lot of the ’90s stuff – or the ’90s stuff, even in the first one.

That said, there will be a couple of people I don’t work with as much as most people do because their schedules are kind of different. But we have a bunch of Deadpools. Even though we’re just one cast [in the film], we have a lot of people.” – Josh Brolin
