Josh Brolin is in incredible shape ahead of Deadpool 2

Paul Moore

He’s almost 50. 50!

Given that Deadpool is adept at killing people with guns, swords and his broken T-Rex fists, Josh Brolin is going to have to be at his best if he’s to upstage the ‘Merc with a Mouth.’

After all, doesn’t everybody want to look cool as they execute a superhero landing?

In case you haven’t heard, the star of Sicario, No Country for Old Men and American Gangster will be playing Cable in Deadpool 2.

See, Ryan Reynolds is cool with that piece of casting news.

Well, given that Cable has once fought Wolverine to a stalemate and defeated Captain America in hand-to-hand combat, it’s fair to say that Brolin is going to have to be in decent shape ahead of filming.

This being said, the majority of film fans will know that Brolin is something of a fitness freak.

Hell, the first time we ever saw him on screen was in The Goonies when his character, Mikey’s older brother Brand, was always working out ahead of his date with Andy (Kerri Green)

Well, aside from showing up to a party dressed as his character from the beloved character from The Goonies, the Oscar-nominated actor has also been hitting the gym ahead of Deadpool 2.

In fact, Brolin’s transformation has been so impressive that even the star of Guardians of the Galaxy – and six-time WWE world champion WWE Champion -Dave Bautista was impressed.

Hell, if anyone knows anything about the gym it has to be Drax!

Taking to Instagram, Bautista said : “I literally didn’t recognise Josh Brolin when I first saw him. Talk about transformations! The dude’s 50! A list movie star! Seen and done it all! Has absolutely nothing to prove! And he’s still grinding! Now if that’s not motivational then I don’t know what to tell you! Dream chasers never stop!

Given Brolin’s transformation, we reckon the threat he’s now the most formidable member of The Goonies. Sorry Chunk.

While some film fans might recognise him as Thanos from the Marvel films, he’ll always be the eldest member of The Goonies to us.

This throwback snap – along with that video of him working out  is definitive proof that Goonies never say die…or skip the gym.

The Fratellis wouldn’t be messing with him.
