First look at Josh Brolin's Cable in 'Deadpool 2'
First came last week's sneak peek at Zazie Beetz' "Domino" and now this week we are treated to our first look at Josh Brolin's "Cable"
Just last week, Reynolds teased his excitement about Josh Brolin's Cable "I think it’s going to be very interesting. I’ve spent this last week on the business end of many Josh Brolin punches. Both verbal and physical and literal and it’s going to be pretty fantastic. He’s going to be epic. He’s going to be an epic Cable."
As if it wasn't enough just to hear Ryan Reynolds gush over the "epic"-ness of his Deadpool 2 co-star, the always consummate promoter, finally revealed our long-awaited first look at Josh Brolin's Cable aka Nathan Summers.

For those not familiar with Brolin's character, Cable is the biological son of the X-Man Cyclops and Jean Grey's clone Madelyne Prior and first appeared as a newborn infant in Uncanny X-Men no. 201. Cable and Deadpool first crossed paths in New Mutants no. 98, when the Merc With a Mouth was hired to kill him. Of course, that was just the start of the reluctant duo's dynamic journey. Enter Deadpool 2.
Currently filming and directed by David Leitch, the sequel to 2016's Deadpool stars Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Brianna Hildebrand, Stefan Kapcic, Zazie Beetz as Domino, and Brolin as Cable.
The film is slated for a June 1st, 2018 release from 20th Century Fox.
Are you pumped for this? I am.
