New ‘Deadpool 2’ Set Photos Offer a Fresh Peek at Josh Brolin’s Cable
Just a couple of weeks ago, handsome actor person and omnipotent Twitter user Ryan Reynolds revealed the first official photo of Josh Brolin as Cable in Deadpool 2. With the sequel not arriving until next summer, it may be quite some time before we get another official peek at the Merc With a Mouth’s beloved foil — thankfully, there are some not so official means of getting around that little problem.
Well, he has two eyes in at least one of those photos. For those less-acquainted with the Deadpool and X-Men comics, Cable, aka Nathan Summers, is the mutant offspring of Scott Summers and a Jean Grey clone. He has powerful psychic abilities (who doesn’t) and, notably, a cybernetic peeper.
Brolin and Reynolds are joined by returning Deadpool stars Morena Baccarin, Brianna Hildebrand, T.J. Miller and Leslie Uggams as Blind Al. The sequel also features Atlanta’s Zazie Beetz as Domino, The Strain’s Jack Kesy as the film’s primary villain (rumored to be Black Tom Cassidy), and Hunt for the Wilderpeople star Julian Dennison in a mystery role.
Deadpool 2 hits theaters on June 1, 2018.
