The latest updates and spoilers for "#Deadpool 2" will feature the first look of Cable and the sequel will set up #Hope Summers and the "X-Force" live-action movie.

Enter Cable

Ryan Reynolds has tweeted two photos of the live-action version of Nathan Summers/Cable in "Deadpool 2." The character will be portrayed by "MIB 3" actor Josh Brolin, who is also famous for playing Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Reynold's previously posted a photo of Zazie Beetz's Domino in the movie.

As seen in the photo, Brolin's version of Cable is quite similar to his comic book counterpart sporting a cybernetic arm and eye, futuristic military grade weapons, and a very serious and grumpy demeanor.

Cable was first teased in the end post-credits scene in the first "Deadpool" film and will likely play a huge role in the sequel's plot.

Cable is the mutant son of Scott Summers/Cyclops and Madelyn Pryor, the clone of Jean Grey. Like his mother, Nathan has all the powers of a psychic such as telepathy and telekinesis, but due to Apocolypse infecting him with a techno-organic virus, the use of his powers are limited to prevent the virus from spreading. Nathan is also a technopath which enables him to manipulate technology and seasoned soldier.

Setting up the 'X-Force' team

When Reynold posted the photos of Cable for "Deadpool 2," eagle-eyed fans noticed that the mutant soldier carried around a teddy bear on his utility belt.

The fans theorized that Cable in the film could have a child, leading to the possibility that Hope Summers will be introduced in the "X-Men" film universe soon.

Hope Summers in the comics, is an Omega level mutant and the adopted daughter of Cable. She was the first mutant born on "M-Day," an apocalyptic event where in the majority of the mutant race is on the brink of extinction. Hope is viewed by the mutant community as a "messiah," while others see her as an antichrist destined to kill millions.

Nathan was tasked by his father to take Hope with him to the future to protect her. The latter raised Hope as his own and trained her in hand-to-hand combat, firearms, and survival. Hope also became one of the avatars of the Phoenix Force and played a huge role in the "Avengers Vs. X-Men" arc.

With that in mind, Hope's involvement could very well set-up the events of the "X-Force" live-action movie and will likely introduce Nathan's evil clone, Strye as its main villain. X-Force is comprised of some of the deadliest mutants in the X-Men, serving as its black-ops team.
