Filming is well underway on the sequel to Deadpool, the foul-mouthed, fourth wall-breaking superhero movie that broke expectations and records last year. Josh Brolin was announced back in April as the primary villain of the piece, the bionic mutant future-soldier Cable.
Now, thanks to the always-entertaining Instagram feed of Brolin, we've been treated to our first look. Take a look.
Kitted out with the military getup and bionic eye that is his signature, Brolin is looking every inch the Nathan Summers of the comics. (It's one of two Marvel villains Brolin will be playing in 2018 – he'll also pop up as Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, albeit in a separate cinematic universe.)
Filming started in June on the sequel, and is set to continue until October, with John Wick's David Leitch behind the camera.
Starring alongside Reynolds and Brolin will be Zazie Beetz as Domino and Hunt For The Wilderpeople's Julian Dennison in an undisclosed role.
Deadpool 2 arrives in theaters on June 1, 2018.
