Last week, it was revealed that Josh Brolin would be taking on the role of the time-traveling mutant Cable in Deadpool 2. After months of speculation that actors such as Stephen Lang, David Harbour, and Michael Shannon would be playing the beloved character, Brolin’s casting was something of a pleasant surprise. He admittedly didn’t make a lot of lists as top actors to portray Cable, but with the exception of his height, he most certainly looks the part — and you can’t say the dude can’t act.

Well, as Brolin has been officially cast and is ready to go, you can bet that they’re hard at work on preproduction of the film. From what we’ve heard in the past from writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the script isn’t likely too far from being done, so the producers will be taking their steps to make this upcoming production a reality. This includes all the prep work required on Brolin.

Cable is no fully CG character like Colossus, but given his cyborg nature, there will be some modifications required. Taking to Instagram, Brolin shared a photo of himself getting his face molded.

Soon enough, there will be a lifecast of Josh Brolin’s cable, and hopefully before long we’ll have a better idea of how Cable will end up looking in the flick. Admittedly, there doesn’t seem like a whole lot of work required. Gray his hair, give him a fake eye, a few scars, and you’ve pretty much got it set.

We are, however, very interested on the approach they’ll be taking with the arm. Will it more closely resemble that of Cyborg from Justice League, or Donald Pierce in the recently-released Logan? Give how much more real it looked there, I’m certainly hoping the latter.

Are you excited to see what Brolin looks like as Cable? Let us know in the comments down below!
