AceShowbiz - As filming on "Deadpool 2" is back on track following the tragic death of stuntwoman Joi "SJ" Harris earlier last week, a new photo has emerged online. Making its way out via a Twitter fanpage, the photo offers us a new look at Josh Brolin's Cable from the upcoming superhero flick.
The photo shows the time-travelling mutant seemingly in the middle of a fight with someone, looking bruised and battered. Aside from sporting some blood on his face, he has his cybernetic eye closed. While it's unclear which scene this is in particular, it's possible that this could be an image of Cable from the future before he makes the time jump to present day after his condition worsened.
In the comics, Cable, whose alter-ego is Nathan Summer, is the biological son of X-Man Cyclops and Madelyne Pryor (Jean Grey's Clone) and the genetic template for Stryfe. He is from a possible future timeline, having been transported as an infant to the future, where he grew into a warrior, before returning to the present. With his messy origin from the comics, the movie is said to take a few liberties with his backstory.
The "Deadpool" sequel resumed filming only two days after an on-set accident left Joi "SJ" Harris killed earlier last week. An investigation into the accident leading to her death revealed that the incident was most likely a "freak low-speed accident," with a source close to the production noting that Harris' motorcycle speed never exceeded 10 miles per hour.
"In the maneuver, which was never more than 15 kilometers per hour - [a little less than] 10 miles an hour - she rode on a flat surface through two open doors and then turned left and went out of camera range," said the source close to the production. "Her exit was a safety ramp to a big platform where the bike was supposed to stop, but she overshot the platform, hit a curb, and was thrown from the bike through a glass window." Harris reportedly was not wearing a helmet during the stunt work.
Harris was an experienced motorcycle rider and semi-professional road racer, but it was her first job as a stuntwoman. The source also denied rumors that she was not qualified for the job, and was hired only because she was black and was doubling for an actress of mixed race. "To say an unqualified person was put in this position is absolutely untrue," the source said. "She was the best candidate for the job."
"Deadpool 2" is set for a June 1, 2018 release in the United States. Directed by David Leitch from a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernic, the movie will see the return of Ryan Reynolds as the Merc with a Mouth, Morena Baccarin as the hero's love interest named Vanessa, T.J. Miller as his friend Weasel, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and Stefan Kapicic as Colossus. Additionally, Zazie Beetz joins the cast to play Domino.
