After the surprise casting of Thanos himself, actor Josh Brolin, as Cable in Deadpool 2, we’ve been waiting to see or hear more of the actor in the role.

And now we know he’s definitely packing on the require muscle for the role.

Brolin is cutting back and working on getting ripped for the movie as can been see by the two instagram posts below, the first from the actor and the second from his trainer Heath Evans and he is sure building some serious guns.

What say you all?

Deadpool and Cable creator Rob Liefeld said of the casting“Josh Brolin brings both the gravitas as well as the physicality required to bring Cable to life on the big screen! He’s an amazing actor and I’m as excited as anyone to see him paired with Ryan Reynolds, Zazie Beets in Deadpool 2!! Cable, Domino and Deadpool people!! It’s happening!!!”

In the comics Cable, was co-created by Deadpool co-creator Rob Liefeld and writer Louise Simonson, was from the future and was the adult son of Scott Summers, also known as the X-Man Cyclops.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
