The first images of Josh Brolin's Cable from Deadpool 2 have been released, showing off a grizzled cyborg mutant that seems in line with the comic book incarnation, down to the scarred face and cybernetic arm. But one detail seems particularly eye-catching, and mysterious: What's with that bear on his belt? The shot of Cable in Reynolds' second image has plenty of things for fans to pick apart, as feedback on social media has demonstrated: Is his gun big enough? Does he have enough pouches? In general, however, the response has been overwhelmingly positive, with Brolin's debut lauded for its authenticity to the iconic 1990s comic book character. But, still, there's that bear. It's possible that the bear is nothing more than a cute, counter-intuitive visual gag: Cable is this deadly, bad-ass warrior who needs his teddy bear to sleep at night, a la Captain Boomerang's thing for pink unicorn plushies in last year's Suicide Squad.

The new clip starts off more like a Cable movie than a trailer for Deadpool 2. Introducing Josh Brolin's futuristic mutant, we see the dark world that he comes from, and the general badassery that just pours off him.

The Deadpool franchise and its marketing doesn't stray away from pop culture references, and this one took the time to take a jab at Justice League. Wade Wilson is complaining about Cable's cybernetic arm, and says it shouldn't be difficult to edit in-- after all, it's not like removing a mustache. Considering how Henry Cavill's #MustacheGate is still dominating in the world of pop culture, the thinly veiled reference will no doubt delight comic fans out there. … [Read more...] about The First Deadpool 2 Trailer Introduces Cable, Is Absolutely Ridiculous

Meanwhile, the trailer confirmed Terry Crews will be in Deadpool 2 as part of a new team the Merc with the Mouth will be leading.

Luckily, the international version of the trailer fixes that … [Read more...] about Deadpool & Colossus Get Intimate in Deadpool 2 International Trailer
