Deadpool 2 has officially started production in Canada and today Brolin’s latest post on his Instagram account reveals his character. In this telling new pic, Brolin’s in a makeup chair getting prepared for what will be Cable’s iconic bionic enhancements.
We all know Cable’s iconic glowing eye is just part of his bionic facial implants, he also has an enhanced arm and shoulder that come from a “techno-organic virus” he was infected with as a child. In the comics Cable, or Nathan Summers, is a time-traveler who happens to be the biological son of Cyclops and a clone of Jean Grey (Madelyne Pryor). It will be interesting to see how the movies explain Cable’s origin.
Deadpool 2 opens in theaters on June 1, 2018.
