‘Deadpool 2’: Check Out Josh Brolin Bulking Up for Cable

Josh Brolin’s gonna look like a tank in the Deadpool sequel.

The 49-year-old has taken to Instagram with quick video of himself pumping iron in preparation for his role in Deadpool 2, which will find him playing Marvel character Cable, aka Nathan Summers, alongside Ryan Reynolds’ Merc with a Mouth.

“Totally clean: no sugar, no breads, no pastas, no drugs, none of it. Fish, rice, eggs, veggies, water, one @bulletproof or @cavemancoffeeco in the morning,” the actor posted. “I’m almost 50. It’s a different time: our access along with some big picture discipline results in always surprising milestones.”

Something (#ryanreynoldsismybitch) tells us Wade Wilson will be receiving more than a few wallops at the hands of Cable, and Brolin’s certainly going to look the part. Reynolds, you better be crankin’ those weights extra hard.

John Wick and Atomic Blonde director David Leitch is directing the Deadpool sequel from a screenplay by returning scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. The film is scheduled for U.S. release on June 1, 2018.

Brolin has the privileged position of inhabiting two Marvel roles. Apart from Deadpool 2, we’ll see Brolin reprising his MCU role as supervillain Thanos. The big purple guy will have a much bigger part to play in Avengers: Infinity War, which will open in the U.S. on May 4, 2018.
