AceShowbiz - First look at Josh Brolin as Cable in "Deadpool 2" has been unveiled by Ryan Reynolds. The Merc with a Mouth depicter took to his Twitter account on Monday, August 7 to share a couple of photos featuring Brolin suiting up as the time-travelling mutant.
The first picture is a close-up shot of the character's face as well as his bionic arm. "We all have that one, grumpy, heavily armed Uncle from the future," Reynolds funnily wrote alongside the post, adding the hashtags, "#PremiumCABLE #JoshBrolin."
The other photo is a wider shot that shows Cable's massive weapon which is slung over his shoulder. He rocks a military getup and his signature bionic eye, with a teddy bear attached to his waist. Reynolds captioned the post, "DeadPool 2: Your premium #Cable provider. #DeadPool2."
