A Deadpool 2 concept artist has revealed an alternate design for Josh Brolin’s cybernetic arm for his role as Cable.
Josh Brolin has been busy this year as Thanos in Avengers: Endgame, following up his role from last year’s Infinity War. However, he also played Cable in Deadpool 2, making him a rare actor to be seen as two different characters in two Marvel films. As Cable, he had a cybernetic arm like his character from the X-Force comics. Concept artist Jerad S. Marantz, who worked on Deadpool 2, has revealed an alternative design for Cable’s arm on his Instagram. Check it out below.
This alternate design emphasizes on more blues and greens in Josh Brolin’s arm. It has a more cybernetic look and feel to it, as opposed to the final design that looks a little less organic.
Deadpool 2 saw a re-release in theaters before the new year as Once Upon a Deadpool. While Josh Brolin’s Cable makes an appearance in this film, his future in the role is uncertain. Since the Disney-Fox merger has been finalized, it’s unclear where Deadpool and the others will lineup in Disney’s release schedule.
What do you think of this alternate design for Cable’s arm? Do you like it better than the final design? Let us know your thoughts down in the comments!
Josh Brolin’s Cable was last seen in Deadpool 2. Here’s a synopsis for the movie:
After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.
Directed by David Leith from a script written by Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick & Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool 2 stars Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Morena Baccarin, Julian Dennison, Zazie Beetz, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, and Jack Kesy.
Deadpool 2 is now available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD.

Veteran X-Men producer Simon Kinberg makes his directorial debut with Dark Phoenix in addition to producing the film with Hutch Parker, Lauren Schuler Donner and Todd Hallowell. Dark Phoenix is expected to be Fox's final X-Men film featuring the core X-Men cast in the cinematic universe launched by director Bryan Singer in 2000 with the Disney-Fox merger now complete.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain. Here's the film's synopsis:
“This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.”
Dark Phoenix is set to hit theaters on June 7, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the X-Men.
