When it was confirmed that Josh Brolin would be stepping into the mighty shoes of Cable in the 'Deadpool' sequel, aptly titled 'Deadpool 2', fans got very excited about the actor's addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe roster. Joining Ryan Reynolds in the titular role and fellow newcomer Zazie Beetz as Domino, the three will surely provide a force to be reckoned with on the big screen, though in utterly unique fashions.

Though Tim Miller saw huge success after shooting the first film, he decided to move onto other projects, leaving the director's chair open for David Leitch to step in on the sequel. Exactly how much that means the tone and overall feel of the films will differ remains to be seen, but if we're to believe Brolin's words in a recent interview, the action included will have been turned up several notches.

Having directed such flicks as 'John Wick' in the past, it's no surprise that dramatic sequences will be making more of an impact in 'Deadpool 2' than the original movie.

Speaking with Collider, Brolin explained: "I had heard somewhere along the line, and I think it's okay for me to say this, but I heard somewhere along the line that they felt the first 'Deadpool' didn't have enough action."

He then teased of 'Deadpool 2': "With this movie, it’s just a different deal. He embraces what he’s very good at, which I think is very smart. There’s ton of action in it. The tease is, a guy who’s 49 years old on the cusp of 50 who got in the best shape of his life, especially exteriorly, and I was extremely disciplined throughout that whole thing. I got beat to s**t on that movie. That’s all I know. I had stuntmen throwing me all over the place."

So long as the film doesn't get bogged down by extremely long and extraneous action, we imagine that it'll be a success when it does eventually make its debut. What Leitch has hopefully and likely managed to remember is that 'Deadpool' succeeds the most when it relies on its dark, adult humour. Doing too much to change that would no doubt leave the audience cold, but we have every faith in everybody on the set, both in front of and behind the camera, that this won't be the case.
