Shooting for Deadpool 2 is well under way and even though it will still be some time before we get an official trailer, the film’s marketing has started to ramp up in a big way. On Monday, Ryan Reynolds tweeted out a photo offering a first look at Domino, played by Zazie Beetz and now Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld has teased a look at one of the film’s other big stars.
While Liefeld’s comparison shot doesn’t show Josh Brolin in costume, it leaves no doubt that the actor has been hitting the gym hard to get a Cable-appropriate physique. And as Reynolds tells Fandango, those muscles aren’t just for show:
“I think it’s going to be very interesting. I’ve spent this last week on the business end of many Josh Brolin punches. Both verbal and physical and literal and it’s going to be pretty fantastic. He’s going to be epic. He’s going to be an epic Cable.”
Brolin, who is also playing Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War next year, has reportedly signed on to play Cable in four movies, with one of those presumably an X-Force movie. In other words, it looks like he’s going to be living at the gym for the next few years at least!
In addition to Brolin’s Cable bod, Zazie Beetz has posted another look at Domino on her Instagram:
Deadpool 2 opens June 1st, 2018 and is directed David Leitch (John Wick, Atomic Blonde). Given Leitch’s track record, we’re pretty confident in predicting that Deadpool 2 will have some of the best fight scenes of any movie released next year!
