Revealed by the star who plays the "Merc with a Mouth" in 20th Century Fox's X-Men Movies universe, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds unveiled in his official Facebook page the first photos of actor Josh Brolin as the time-travelling mutant mercenary Cable - who will co-star with Reynolds in the upcoming sequel that's called "Deadpool 2" and is slated for release next year.
With a description post saying "We all have that one, grumpy, heavily armed Uncle from the future." and the hashtags "Premium Cable" and "Maximum Asshole" added for good effect, Brolin looks very pumped and menacing to play Nathan Summers - the future son of Scott Summers/ Cyclops and his former wife Madelyn Pryor who became a future warrior and is a founding member of X-Force. Brolin, who also plays Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, signed a four-picture deal to play the character in Fox's X-Men Movies univerese - so things are looking pretty awesome for this fan favorite character's fans in terms of seeing him back for more sequels and spin-offs.
Deadpool 2 will be released in theaters on June 1, 2018.
