May is going to be a huge month for Josh Brolin. Not only is he set to battle Earth’s Mightiest Heroes (and the Guardians of the Galaxy) in Avengers: Infinity War, but he’s also set to bring the X-Men comic book character Cable to life in 20th Century Fox’s hotly-anticipated sequel Deadpool 2.
Brolin celebrated his 50th birthday this week, with his Deadpool 2 co-star Ryan Reynolds marking the occasion by sharing a humourous post featuring the Merc with a Mouth paining a Goonies portrait [see here], and now Deadpool and Cable co-creator Rob Liefeld has posted a new behind-the-scenes image of Brolin in character as Nathan Summers.
After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.
Deadpool 2 sees David Leitch (John Wick) directing a cast that includes returning stars Ryan Reynolds (Wade Wilson), Morena Baccarin (Vanessa), T.J. Miller (Weasel), Brianna Hildebrand (Negasonic Teenage Warhead), Stefan Kapicic (Colossus), Leslie Uggams (Blind Al) and Karan Soni (Dopinder) alongside new additions Zazie Beetz (Atlanta) as Domino, Josh Brolin (Avengers: Infinity War) as Cable, Jack Kesy (The Strain) as the film’s villain, and Shioli Kutsuna (The Outsider), Eddie Marsan (Atomic Blonde), Julian Dennison (Hunt for the Wilderpeople) and Terry Crews (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) in as-yet-unrevealed roles. It is set for release on May 18th 2018.
