First Look at Josh Brolin as Cable in Deadpool 2

Ryan Reynolds just loves to start off the week the right way.  Last Monday, he crashed our case of the Mondays by revealing the first look of Zazie Beets as Domino.  This week, he’s joined by his co-star, Josh Brolin, to give us our first images of Brolin as Cable!

At first glance, I think this hits everything you’d want to see out of the future soldier.  While it’s not the cheesy blue and silver we’ve come to know, it is a more modern take to Cable, which is completely acceptable to nerd standards.  One thing we should note is the misplaced teddy bear at Cable’s hip.  After much discussion, comic/toy expert Jason the X decreed that it was Hope’s Teddy Bear.

If you’re like me and are unaware of who Hope Summers is, here is Jason’s explanation, 

“She’s basically Mutant Jesus; Cable’s adopted daughter. She was the first one born after the Mutant population got knocked down to 100 and no more were being born for some time. Basically, she can duplicate another mutant’s power and immediately use it at Omega levels.”

Then I assume Jason pushed up his glasses and said, “Obviously”.  Now the question is, could Hope Summers be in this movie and is it too early?  Would having her in Logan have been a better place for her?  You tell us @Cinelinx on twitter and instagram!

Deadpool 2 is set to release June 1, 2018!
