With Deadpool 2 currently filming in Vancouver, we’ve just caught a new look at Josh Brolin’s time-travelling mutant, Cable, in action.
Twitter user YVRShoots snapped Brolin in action at Vancouver’s Army & Navy store. Brolin was dressed in a skintight silver costume, pushing a shopping cart loaded with guns through the street.
While it’s hard to say exactly what part this scene has to play in the film, we might guess from Cable’s silver getup – distinctly different from his outfit in the film’s official promotional images – that these images show Cable shortly after he arrives in the present day from the future timeline in which he grew up. If so, then his late night ‘shopping trip’ might suggest that he has arrived without any weapons of his own and his first order of business is arming himself, perhaps also grabbing some 21st century clothes, much like an older, grumpier, more mutated and less naked Kyle Reese.
You can check out the image in the tweet below.

Before seeing him encounter Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool, superhero fans can see Brolin in next year’s Avengers: Infinity War, where he’ll be reprising his MCU role of Thanos, the Mad Titan.
What do you think Cable’s up to in this image? Are you excited to see Brolin take on the role? Let us know in the comments below.
Directed by David Leitch, the Deadpool sequel 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.
6 R-Rated Comic Book Movies Audiences Deserve
Logan and Deadpool have shown studios that R-Rated superhero movies can succeed. Sure, Watchmen and 300 kind of proved that same point in 2009, but now both Marvel and DC have said R-Rated movies are a possibility. Audiences are tired of so many comic book movies featuring similar plots, so opening more projects to the potential of being R-Rated makes it possible that different, mature stories can be told.
Some characters, like Superman and Spider-Man, should never receive the R-Rated treatment. If a character is defined by a sense of hope or optimism instead of a dark, gritty core that grounds all their actions, then a R-Rated movie likely won’t work.
