Actor Josh Brolin’s extensive transformation into the Marvel mutant Cable for Deadpool 2 involves far more than fancy haircuts and getting swole. Brolin’s latest Instagram post confirms that. As a cyborg from the future, Cable will require a lot of costume alterations to achieve the authentic look, including some work on Brolin’s face to presumably give him the gnarly scarring the character is known for.

In addition to extensive scarring on the right side of his face, Cable also has a techno-organic left eye that glows, especially when he’s using his extensive telepathic and telekinetic powers. His entire left arm is also cybernetic after a virus took his original limb.

If Brolin’s in-character caption for the Instagram post is any indication, then this version of Cable will struggle with his humanity in a serious way. For one reason or another, he’ll be actively looking for Deadpool:

“Insanity on the brink. Face is morphing into something machine, fierce, hair sliced, arm machined, bulged. Where is Deadpool?!? Looking. Looking. All I got are these two…molding me, prodding, turning me into something hard.”

That “something hard” looks like it’s going to fuck shit up in Deadpool 2.


Deadpool 2 is currently filming on schedule for a June 1 release.
