Following up the character's official unveiling earlier this week, a new photo of Josh Brolin's Cable has surfaced from the set of Deadpool 2 courtesy of leading actor Ryan Reynolds. This time the time-traveling mutant is showcasing a gun of a different variety, as the hulking mutant is seen posing alongside the film's eponymous anti-hero -- but the Deadpool shown via the actor's Instagram is of a more pint-sized persuasion than one might expect.
Reynolds also uploaded the image to his Twitter account, but elected to provide a different caption. Maintaining his Merc with a Mouth persona, he stated, "Josh Brolin and I love to just hang out and chat between takes. He calls me his lil' Shake Weight™."
Currently filming in Vancouver, the sequel apparently required the closure of city streets to accommodate the production, so Reynolds used his Twitter to thank the citizens and officers involved to make it happen. Many might have missed the web-slinging motion that one man involved threw up to homage a different Marvel character altogether, but the Deadpool actor definitely did not, and of course seized the comedic opportunity to riff on it.
Directed by David Leitch (John Wick), Deadpool 2 is filming in Vancouver, British Columbia. Premiering June 1, 2018, the sequel will see the return of Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, T.J. Miller as Weasel, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Stefan Kapičić as the voice of Colossus, and Karan Soni as Dopinder, with newcomers Zazie Beetz as Domino, Josh Brolin as Cable, Julian Dennison in an unknown role, and Jack Kesy as a villain widely thought to be Black Tom Cassidy.
