Cable - Marvel Comics

Although we do not know a lot about the upcoming sequel to 2016’s smash R-rated hit Deadpool, we can expect Deadpool 2 to be just as good with the addition of 2 major characters, Domino and Cable. Domino was already announced to be played by Zazie Beetz while Cable was announced to played by Josh Brolin. In case you were wondering, Brolin is also playing Thanos in the MCU. Many people have wondered and speculated as to what fan favorite Cable would look like, and today 2 images were released by both Josh Brolin and Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds. This gives us the first look at the time-traveling mutant Cable.

One thing to take note of is the teddy bear on his left hip. Could this be another hint to Hope Summers as we have seen in past Deadpool 2 marketing? The Messiah Complex was one of the major arcs in the X-Men mythos which could lead to an eventual cross over or maybe time traveling version back to the past to tie into the new X-Men films. After all, the X-Force/Cable: Messiah War cover included the 3 main characters from the upcoming Deadpool 2. This could tie it all in and bring the entire Fox X-Men universe together.

Also, you can see the infamous scars on his eye in the first close up photo, as well as his cybernetic eye. He also dawns the cybernetic arm and looks ripped as he does in the comics.

If you don’t know a lot about Cable then here’s a little description:

Nathan Summers is the biological son of the X-Man Cyclops (Scott Summers) and Madelyne Pryor (Jean Grey’s clone), the “half” brother of Rachel Summers and Nate Grey, and the genetic template of Stryfe. He is from a possible future timeline, having been transported as an infant to the future, where he grew into a warrior, before returning to the present. Cable was born with telepathic and telekinetic abilities. However, the extent to which he has been able to utilize these powers has varied dramatically throughout his appearances. Originally, both were limited by his need to restrain his techno-organic infection, and his powers were negligible compared to his more traditional fighting skills. However, following the subsidence of the infection, they gradually increased to the point where they were similar in magnitude to those of Nate Grey, to whom he is genetically identical. At their height, he demonstrated the ability to simultaneously levitate the floating city of Providence and combat the Silver Surfer. Following that story, his powers were burnt out and he replaced both with technological substitutes. He later states that both his telepathy and telekinesis have faded to nothing.

Ryan Reynolds will reprise his role as Deadpool alongside Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, T. J. Miller as Weasel. Also joining the cast is Zazie Beetz as Domino, and of course, Josh Brolin as Nathan Summers/Cable.

Deadpool 2 is set to hit theaters on June 1, 2018.
