The Marvel superhero Cable has never seemed like a happy-go-lucky type of guy. A time-traveling soldier from a possible dystopian future who is also saddled with a cybernetic arm and eye, he’s typically depicted as being rather, well, grumpy. And it looks like Josh Brolin’s portrayal of him in Deadpool 2 won’t change that.
In an Instagram post, Brolin posted a black and white photo of his character Cable screaming into a broken mirror. Why is he screaming? Well, he probably just tried having a conversation with Deadpool, who’s known for making the sagest of men question their sanity.
Brolin captioned the photo with “Cable porn” and then a hashtag of a skull emoji, poo emoji, and L2 (Dead-poo-L2…get it?), plus the hashtags #cableinsanity, #cableswole, #cablepowered, and #cableporn. A definite yes to the “Cable insanity” part, but not much in the way of porn. And since the photo only shows Cable’s head, we’ll hold judgement on whether he’s swole or not, though Brolin has reportedly been hitting the gym pretty hard to step into the role of the meaty mutant.
Unfortunately, we’re going to be waiting quite a while to see Brolin in action as Cable. Deadpool 2 is slated for a release date of June 1, 2018.
In the meantime, check out this cheeky teaser trailer for Deadpool 2 starring Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool. Cable doesn’t appear, but we do get a requisite Stan Lee cameo.
