Fan’s of ‘Deadpool’ who know the comics have been dying to see what Josh Brolin would look like as Cable and now we finally have our first look at this time traveling superhero. The Merc with the Mouth is going to have his besty looking pretty spot on for the comics if these first two shots are any indication of how he’ll look throughout the movie. Considering they were shared directly from both Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin themselves, I think we have something to eagerly look forward to! The scars, the glowing eye, the metal arm, the ridiculously oversized gun – this live-action iteration of Cable really seems to have it all. Well, no giant shoulder pads but I don’t think that’ll take away from the character in the long run.
This reveal isn’t too surprising as they just gave us our first look at Zazie Beetz as Domino but it is surprising at just how good he looks in costume!
First up, here is Brolin sharing a full on body shot of his take on Nathan Summers, better known as Cable:
If that isn’t it enough, we also have a close up of the character being shown off by Reynolds. Honestly, his action here seems like an extremely nice gesture of what he’d be doing to Wade Wilson to get our unstoppable (at least when it comes to talking) superhero.

I didn’t think that they’d be able to pull off Cable’s look and am happy that I was wrong. Brolin nailed it here which has me even more excited for ‘Deadpool 2‘ which I didn’t think was possible!
What are your thoughts on our first look of Josh Brolin as Cable? Is this how you want Summers to look in ‘Deadpool 2’ or is the character missing something? Share your thoughts below True Believers!
