The anomaly that was Deadpool's success made ripples within the comic book movie world. Not only did it open the gate for other R-rated adaptations such as Logan, it also showed that superhero fatigue can easily be avoided with fresh entries into the genre. Plus, $783 million at the box office is remarkable for a character who was a virtual unknown to the casual moviegoer.
With the studio's obvious decision to green-light a sequel, one of the big casting announcements came in the form of Josh Brolin as Cable. We now have our first look at him in character via self-proclaimed marketing genius Ryan Reynolds.
For all of you who needed to Google this character but didn't when you heard his name, Cable is a soldier from a dystopian future and is the son of the X-Men's Cyclops. His stoic, mission minded disposition constantly clashes with Deadpool's more laid back approach. I personally think that this is a great adaptation of the character. Its accurate to the 90's source material but is also grounded enough to grab the attention of non-comic readers.
DeadPool 2 arrives on June 1, 2018.
