Ryan Reynolds took to Instagram to celebrate Josh Brolin’s 50th birthday in the most Deadpool way possible, and we are loving it.
Josh Brolin is starring as Cable in Deadpool 2, and we’re so excited to see him in the upcoming film. We got a closer look at his character in the most recent trailer for the film, but today Ryan Reynolds is paying tribute to Brolin on his 50th birthday with a serious throwback.
Reynolds is known for posting great birthday greetings to his Instagram (like Betty White’s birthday post, for instance), and he just posted a picture to his Instagram of Deadpool painting Brolin (dressed as Cable, of course). However, a quick peek at the picture Deadpool was painting calls back to another of Brolin’s iconic roles.
It’s just the perfect throwback, and the most Deadpool-style birthday wish Reynolds could have offered. The painting is of Brolin in his iconic red bandana as Brand from The Goonies. Of course, the caption refers to Brolin as “Bright Eye,” which is most likely a wink to Cable’s own bright, glowing, cybernetic eye.
This isn’t the first time Ryan Reynolds and the Deadpool team have referenced Goonies. An eagle-eyed fan noticed that Wade is seen wearing the exact same Hawaiian shirt that Chunk wears in the ’80s classic. For those wondering if that was just a coincidence, Reynolds confirmed the nod on Twitter.
Buddy of mine pointed out Wade is wearing the exact same shirt Chunk wears in ‘Goonies,’ which tells me #Deadpool2 is going to have some fantastic Easter eggs! https://t.co/QBfiq34Oxi pic.twitter.com/7QA0cAFrs5
