Deadpool 2 is the most anticipated Superhero movie coming in 2018 after Avengers Infinity War. Deadpool was the best superhero movies in 2016 and the highest grossing R-Rated movie. The film has aroused expectations among X-Men fans, and the movie’s global box office collections crossed $800 million while the cost of production was less than $60 million and this made it a successful superhero movie in the entire X-men franchise.
The team of the movie is coming back, from Blind-Al to Vanessa, Collossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead will reprise roles. Cable is in the mix as he is the time-traveling son of Cyclops and Madelyne Pryor (a clone of Jean Grey) who had been trained to be a warrior in the future. His girlfriend Domino (ZazieBeetz) will make an appearance. Domino is confirmed. Both will play an anti-hero to balance the scales to Deadpool’s “happy go murdery” persona. It is not clear if other mutants will crossover, but there is a speculation that there will be a new mutant like never before.
Josh Brolin is excited and sharing pictures from the sets on Instagram. The picture has Cable pissed which led fans to guess that this is a scene from the film. They believe that it is more than just a screaming and Brolin may be teasing a villain who is close to Cable.
It is also possible that Cable is mad at something but is screaming into a broken mirror, looks unhinged. It may be that it is not Cable but Stryfe from the comics. When Cable was sent into the future, his clone was made in his absence, kidnapped by Apocalypse and taught to accept mutant supremacy and destroy humanity.
The website Just Jared got some set photos of Deadpool 2 and featured Josh Brolin as Cable in a new costume. He wears a skin-tight futuristic costume and confirmed there will be time-travel. An organization like Mutant Liberation Front has been confirmed.
According to Twitter user Animal Desatado, photos feature soldier wearing law enforcement uniform with initials DMC on the armband. This stands for Division of Mutant Containment which is a reference to Mutant Response Division (MRD). There is a photo of a sign DMC Transfer Division, and it reads “Property of the United States Mutant Division.” MRD was created for animated series Wolverine & the X-Men which telecasted between 2008 and 2009. The story was the war between US government and Mutants. If it is MRD, for the first time, we will see them on a big-screen Marvel movie.
The fans praised Cable’s look as closer to his comic-book counterpart. David Leitch, director of Deadpool 2, he will not just look but act like his comic-book character. He said that the tone will be lifted from comic-book pages. He said that fans of Deadpool and Cable comics must be excited about this movie.
“Cable has a really interesting and complex backstory. Obviously, no film could ever encapsulate the entire backstory, so I think we’ll find the first introduction is about who this character is. When you look at the Cable and Deadpool comic book series, you see how there is banter between them. Whether they are on opposite sides or not, they are definitely formidable to each other. One is frustrating to the other. The chemistry between Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin is amazing. It’s not unlike what you see in the Cable and Deadpool series”.
He also added,
“The success of the first film has given us license to explore opening up the world and actually being more provocative. That’s what people are going to expect. They did such an incredible job with the first film — I’m such a huge fan, that it’s exciting to get to play in that sandbox. The fun thing about Deadpool is, there are no rules. Look at the comic book series. There aren’t any rules. We break them! That’s what is fun”.
The Deadpool sequel is not linked to X-Men universe, but there will be lots of references to X-Men especially Wolverine. Deadpool 2 is shooting at Hatley Castle which is used for X-Mansion where young mutants are trained.
The set photo revealed Wade Wilson suited up and lounging outside Charles Xavier’s mansion. Deadpool posted this on twitter:
“Dropped by the X-Mansion.Big f*cking surprise.No one’s home.”
