Josh Brolin Has Some Schmutz on His Face in a New ‘Deadpool 2’ Cable Transformation Photo
Josh Brolin’s Cable is, at this point, the most anticipated part of Deadpool 2, and as we have seen, he’s very game to get to get into full time-traveling cyborg warrior shape. He’s also game to have some weird-looking blue molds taken of his face, apparently, as his latest Instagram tease of his characters shows.
Brolin posted a photo on his account of himself in the makeup chair while being watched over by his two makeup effects artists. If you don’t already know, Cable is in possession of a metal arm (not unlike Captain America’s buddy the Winter Soldier) and a “techno-organically enhanced” left eye that gives him, among other things, really good eyesight. While they can’t actually replace Brolin’s real eye with a mechanical one, the magic of makeup allows artists to trick the rest of us into thinking they have.
Take a look at Brolin’s Cable in progress below:
We don’t know the exact plot of Deadpool 2 yet, but we do know that Cable’s alternate timeline will probably be at least a small part of it. He’s from one of many possible future timelines, having been transported there as a baby and grown up a warrior who ends up returning to the past (well, present). He’s also the son of Cyclops and Jean Grey’s clone, so get ready for plenty more in-universe inside jokes and jabs at franchise properties.
