Thanks to another tweet from Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds, fans have been granted their first look of Josh Brolin as Cable. “We all have that one, grumpy, heavily armed Uncle from the future,” the Tweet reads.
Rob Liefeld, creator of both Deadpool and Cable, also revealed a full-body shot of Brolin in costume on his Instagram. The looks at the first live-action film version of Cable follow up on last week’s first peek at Zazie Beetz as Domino.
Cable – Nathan Summers – is the biological son of Cyclops and Madelyne Pryor; he made his debut in New Mutants #87 in March 1990 and has long been associated with the X-Force. The Cable & Deadpool series, which ran from 2004 to 2008, popularized the duo as an unlikely buddy team. Fans will get a chance to see that team in action when Deadpool 2 arrives in June 2018.
