LOOK: Ryan Reynolds reveals Cable look for ‘Deadpool 2’
One of the most eagerly awaited scenes of “Deadpool 2” are those with the appearance of Cable. Now, fans can get a closer look of the movie version of the time traveling mutant.
In true Deadpool fashion, Ryan Reynolds unveiled the character’s movie look via Twitter. The photo showed off Cable’s glowing biomechanical left eye and his cyborg arm.
He is also shown carrying a lot of firepower. Yet despite all his tools for wanton destruction, he appears to have a soft spot for a certain teddy bear.
The role will be played by actor Josh Brolin (“Guardians of the Galaxy”, “True Grit”, “No Country for Old Men”).
Based on comic book lore, the character of Cable has one of the most convoluted histories. He was said to have been born in the present, sent to the future, grew up to become a warrior, then came back to the present as a gun-totting cybernetically enhanced soldier. On top of all that, he is the son of X-men member Cyclops from a clone of Jean Grey.
The Daily Mail also reported Brolin being spotted at the set of “Deadpool 2” in Canada wearing the full Cable costume, in the same day that Reynolds uploaded the photos.
“Deadpool 2” is scheduled to premiere on June 2018. JB
