Deadpool’s going to have some seriously muscular backup in his new movie.
Actor Ryan Reynolds shared the first look at Josh Brolin as Cable in Deadpool 2, the highly anticipated sequel hitting theaters in 2018. Brolin responded by putting the photos on his Instagram and adding the comment: "Now offering 25 percent off your next autopsy. ☠️ #youremine #deadpool.”
UPDATE: You'll get to see jacked Brolin as Cable a bit sooner—Reynolds just confirmed that the film has been moved up to a May 18, 2018 release date.

Drop sets to the point where you can't even lift the weight of your own arms. @justindlovato is my friend...usually, but when he pushes me close to tears, I know, deep inside, that he actually wants to play Cable even more than I do. #friendswhotortureotherfriends #FuckingBrolin #fuckingcable #ryanreynoldsismybitch @iambuilt @goldsgym #100%clean
One day I very well might have to pull a superhero head off (or two) so rack pulls help work the upper muscles needed to pop them off alleviating stress on the lower back region. #cablesmarts #cablemeditationsfortheday #cableswole @prevailactivewear #ivebeencabled @goldsgym #dogtown 🎥 by @kathrynbrolin
Cable’s character is known for his bionic arm, scarred eye, and (in case this isn't obvious from the posts) tons of guns and ammo.
After the first Deadpool movie generated record box-office numbers, the sequel has become the hottest upcoming superhero movie release not named Avengers: Infinity War.
Deadpool 2 is set for a May 18, 2018 release date.
