Deadpool 2: Josh Brolin introduced as new villain Cable

Meet Cable, the “grumpy, heavily armed” new villain of Deadpool 2, played by Josh Brolin.

The first look at the Marvel comic book character was released by Brolin and producer/actor Ryan Reynolds on Monday.

“We all have that one, grumpy, heavily armed Uncle from the future,” Reynolds wrote.

“Deadpool 2: Your premium Cable provider.”  Brolin re-posted the photo, getting in character and writing: “Now offering 25 percent off your next autopsy. ☠️ #yourmine #deadpool.”

Cable, like Deadpool, is a character originally from the X-Men Universe, which has made several appearances in other comics.  His real name is Nathan Summers, the son of X-Men member Scott Summers – AKA Cyclops – and Madelyne Pryor.

He first appeared as an infant in the 1986 Uncanny X-Men series and was later introduced as a time-travelling villain in The New Mutants.
