Things We Saw Today: Here’s the First Reveal of Josh Brolin as Cable in Deadpool 2

Deadpool 2 star Ryan Reynolds continues his newfound tradition of Tweeting out first looks at the upcoming movie’s cast. We gotta say, Josh Brolin seems to be rocking it.

While Reynolds gave us a teasing shot—complete with snarky hashtag #PremiumCABLE—Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld jumped in on the fun and helped settle speculation about whether Brolin’s Cable would be sporting Liefeld’s notorious, trademark pouches.

Liefeld Tweeted out a more detailed image of Cable in costume:
