Brolin shared a photo of himself with his son, Trevor Brolin, on Instagram. In the photo, Josh Brolin is sporting a new haircut with the sides of his head shaved while the top is left long enough to be slicked back.
This haircut very closely resembles the hair seen in early concept art of Cable for Deadpool 2.
Seeing Brolin in full superhero shape with the new haircut, not to mention a black and white filter that seems appropriate for the grim and serious character, makes it pretty easy to get an idea of Cable will look like in Deadpool 2.
Brolin beat out stiff competition to play to role of Cable, Deadpool's best
Deadpool 2 currently has a 4.17 out of 5 ComicBook.com User Anticipation Rating, making it the third most anticipated upcoming comic book movie among ComicBook.com readers. Let us know how excited you are for Deadpool 2 by giving it your own anticipation rating below.
David Leitch (John Wick) will direct the sequel, taking over for original Deadpool director Tim Miller. Fox is reportedly aiming for a June start of production in Vancouver.
Ryan Reynolds will return as Wade Wilson, a.k.a. Deadpool, the Merc with a Mouth. For the sequel, he'll be joined by Josh Brolin as Cable. Cable was co-created by Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld and Louise Simonson. He has often been paired with Deadpool as his grim, serious demeanor serves as the perfect foil to Deadpool's crude and zany humor. The duo headlined an ongoing comic book series, Cable & Deadpool, for 50 issues.
Atlanta star Zazie Beetz has also been cast in Deadpool 2. She will play Domino, a mutant with probability manipulation abilities that endows her with improbably good luck. In the Marvel Comics Universe, Domino was a member of Cable's mercenary crew, Six Pack, and one of his early love interests.
Deadpool 2 opens in theaters on June 1, 2018.
