With production on “Deadpool 2” currently underway, Josh Brolin has shared a picture to give fans a sneak peek at how he’ll look under prosthetics as super-villain Cable.
“Insanity on the brink. Face is morphing into something machine, fierce, hair sliced, arm machined, bulged. Where is Deadpool?!? Looking. Looking. All I got are these two…molding me, prodding, turning me into something hard,” wrote Brolin in his Instagram caption.
Created by artist Rob Liefeld and writer Louise Simonson, Cable first appeared in a tease at the end of “The New Mutants” issue #86 in February of 1990. The scarred, ravaged character has a bionic left arm, a cybernetic eye, and embedded technology that allows him to hack into computer systems.
Meanwhile, a year after leaving indie movie audiences rolling with laughter in “Hunt For the Wilderpeople,” Julian Dennison also joined the cast of “Deadpool 2.”
The casting was announced Wednesday by the Merc himself, Ryan Reynolds, also via Instagram. Reynolds celebrated the signing with a photo showing Dennison getting a piggyback ride from Deadpool while pointing up to the sky like a chubby Yoda.
“Deadpool 2” hits theaters June 1, 2018.
