ctor Stefan Kapicic has had a pretty big week. Monday, The Hollywood Reporter revealed he has been cast In a recurring role on AMC’s Better Call Saul. Monday was also the New York premiere of Deadpool 2. The Hollywood elite were there, including but not limited to co-stars Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Zazie Beetz, Lewis Tan, Morena Baccarin, Terry Crews, director David Leitch and Deadpool co-creator Rob Liefeld among others.
The premier doubled as a fan screening and Kapicic said that being amongst the fans was a delight. The X-Men movies now have a canonical Colossus and as a comic book fan, Stefan couldn’t be happier.
Stefan took the time to talk to us by phone about comic book collecting, fan reactions to Deadpool 2 and how Ryan Reynolds and David Leitch lead the team to a successful sequel that hits as hard as The Empire Strikes Back.

FOG!: Thanks for joining us!
Stefan Kapicic: Thanks for having me, especially coming from last night we had such a spectacular premiere in New York, so I’m still trying to process all the emotions and everything that happened last night.
How was it, were you hanging out with Rob Liefeld?
I was hanging out with everybody, it was the whole cast and we were just going through all the things and talking about filming and everything else, everyone was just so happy because of this crazy success that is happening right now. People are telling is that it is much better than the first one, and I thought, “Nobody can beat the first Deadpool“.
It’s really surreal in that way, because last night at the premier at the same time it was a fan screening and we had the reaction from the true, real fans which was indescribable. This is amazing, I don’t know what to tell you because I am still under this impression.
