Deadpool’s going to have some seriously muscular backup in his new movie.
Actor Ryan Reynolds shared the first look at Josh Brolin as Cable in Deadpool 2, the highly anticipated sequel hitting theaters in 2018. Brolin responded by putting the photos on his Instagram and adding the comment: “Now offering 25 percent off your next autopsy. ☠️ #youremine #deadpool.”

Brolin isn’t the only one joining the team for Deadpool 2—Zazie Beetz is set to play Domino. Reynolds also shared the first look at her character in costume:
After the first Deadpool movie generated record box-office numbers, the sequel has become the hottest upcoming superhero movie release not named Avengers: Infinity War.
Deadpool 2 is set for a June 1, 2018 release date.
