Ryan Reynolds released the first image of Josh Brolin as Cable in Deadpool 2 today.

In all seriousness, I think it’s a pretty decent-looking version of Cable. I probably would have preferred Stephen Lang or Ron Perlman to be cast, but Brolin is going to be fine. And we have to see how they handle the outlandish character of Cable in the more low-budget Deadpool franchise.
That said, Twitter jokes abounded today so I thought I would try my hand at Liefelding up this take on the character.
Added the the widow’s peak, a few extra pouches (could have probably added more), a backpack, a katana (again, probably should have added more), and tried to emulate the Rob Liefeld anatomy. NOW he’s closer to being Cable from the comics.
