Josh Brolin revealed the first, full body look at Cable today for his upcoming role in Deadpool 2. The reveal was made on his Instagram account, where he captioned it with the hashtags “Youremine” and “Deadpool”.
You can see his cybernetic arm and eye, and Brolin is definitely packing some heavy heat when it comes to his firearm of choice. Of course, the little teddy bear on his hip is a nice touch as well. In case you’re not familiar, Cable is a time traveling mercenary who is also Cyclops and Jean Grey’s son. He travels back in time to stop the rise of Apocalypse, and often uses Deadpool as a partner.
Cable is basically the dry humor version of Deadpool, and often substitutes matter of fact humor for Deadpool’s sarcasm. One of his lovers, Domino, has also been cast in the film and will be played by Zazie Beetz. She was a member of his mercenary crew, aptly called the Six Pack.
No trailer has been released yet, which isn’t surprising considering still have ten and a half months until release. We can be sure that the back and forth comedy from the comics will be front and center in the film, and we can only wait to see Cable fire up the gun for real.
The Instagram isn’t embedding properly, so we included a screen shot of the post below.
