Josh Brolin has suited up in his Deadpool 2 costume in the first two images of him as Nathan Summers, better known as Cable.
Beyond the fact that we’re all anxiously awaiting Ryan Reynolds second outing as Deadpool, comic book fans are also eager to see the first big screen appearance of Cable. Just as he did last week with an image of Zazie Beetz as Domino, Reynolds took the opportunity Monday morning to show off the first image of Brolin as Cable. This was quickly followed up by Brolin himself posting a second image on his Instagram account.
For those unfamiliar with Cable… where does one even begin with his backstory. Lets just go for the easy part. His real name is Nathan Summers and he is the son of Scott Summers (Cyclops) and Jean Grey (Phoenix) and he was sent to the future as a child to protect him from various evil doers. There he became a soldier with a fondness for guns no normal person could lift. How Deadpool 2 will approach his backstory is still unknown, but expect some witty quips from the Merc with a Mouth whichever way they unveil it.
Deadpool 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on June 1, 2018.
