Cable is lit in Deadpool 2

Deadpool introduces us to Cable and it doesn’t hold back.

Today 20th Century Fox released a brand new video from Deadpool 2, which introduces us to the infamous Cable. In the process, we get a lovely jab at the Justice League (that mustache issue with Superman) and a hilarious acted out sequence between Sheriff Deadpool and Cable.

For those who are unfamiliar with the comics, Cable was the biological son of  Cyclops (Scott Summers) and Madelyne Pryor (Jean Grey’s clone). He is from a possible future timeline, having been transported as an infant to the future, where he grew into a warrior, before returning to the present.

However, we do not know if they are going to continue with this particular comic book story in the Deadpool 2 movie. We’ll have to wait and see.

The official shenanigans-filled synopsis for the film is below:

After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.

Ryan Reynolds is back in the role of the disfigured merc with a mouth. Josh Brolin and Zazie Beetz join him, playing Cable and Domino respectfully. Jack Kesy will be playing an undisclosed villain in the film. Shioli Kutsuna and Julian Dennison will be playing undisclosed roles.

Deadpool 2 will be released in theaters on May 18, 2018.
