Last weekend, a new photo from the set of Deadpool 2 offered fans a fresh look at Josh Brolin as Cable. Now, another image from the highly anticipated sequel has been released and it may provide viewers with a glimpse of Cable as a younger man.
The image features Brolin as Cable without his signature cybernetic eye, prompting fans to suggest that the scene in question may involve a younger version of Nathan Summers before he travels back in time and meets Deadpool. Of course, the cybernetic eye could be added in post-production, although fans will have to wait until the film arrives in theaters next summer to be certain.

Personally, Cable does not appear to be any younger than in previously released images and it is not the first time Brolin has been spotted on set as the character without the cybernetic eye. Do you think the image depicts a younger version of Cable? Share your thoughts below!
Directed by David Leitch, the film stars Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson/Deadpool, Zazie Beetz as Domino, Josh Brolin as Nathan Summers/Cable, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Stefan Kapcic as Piotr Rasputin/Colossus, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa Carlysle, T.J. Miller as Weasel, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, and Karan Soni as Dopinder. Julian Dennison, Jack Kesy and Shioli Kutsuna join the cast in undisclosed roles.
Deadpool 2 is currently scheduled to be released in theaters on June 1, 2018.

5 Essential Cable Stories To Read Before His Debut In ‘Deadpool 2’
Now that it’s official Josh Brolin will be suiting up as Cable in Deadpool 2, it’s time for everyone to get a crash course on the character so they can say “that’s not how it happened in the comic” when they see the movie with their friends.
Nathan Summers, the future son of Cyclops and Jean Grey, first debuted in 1986, but he didn’t make his full debut as Cable until 1990. Rob Liefeld designed him to be a leader more prone to take action than Xavier and that character trait has persisted throughout his long history. Cable has fought alongside the X-Men in the past as well as fought for mutants survival against the government in a dark future.
Cable is the straight-man to Deadpool’s goofball and I can’t wait to see the two of them come together next year in Deadpool 2. Hopefully Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin have the chemistry to bring this legendary bro-mance to the bigscreen, otherwise Fox will be hearing from a lot of angry fans.
