We finally have a glimpse of how Josh Brolin’s Cable will look like at next summer’s Deadpool 2 as Ryan Reynolds premiered two photos of the character today.
Fans of the character should be relieved that Cable’s intense look in the tweets is pretty faithful to the comics. Of the two images released, the close up photo (below) shows a closer look at the three scars over Cable’s eyes. The second image shows full body shot of the character while carrying plenty of ammunition.
“We all have that one, grumpy, heavily armed Uncle from the future. #PremiumCABLE #JoshBrolin,” Reynolds hilariously tweeted. Then added, “DeadPool 2: Your premium #Cable provider. #DeadPool2.”
Brolin is clearly enjoying this process and has been sharing plenty of Cable related images. A few months ago, the actor posted a photo of is entire head coated in blue gunk in preparation for production of cast to be used for special effects, then a month later posted another where he appears to be working out at the gym.
In the comics, Cable is a time travelling soldier, and the biological son of X-Men’s Cyclops and Jean Grey. He grew up as a warrior in the future where he was transported to as an infant, and then later returned to the present.
Directed by David Leitch (John Wick, Atomic Blonde), and written by the original film’s screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, Deadpool 2 will hit theaters on June 1, 2018.
