Man, does Josh Brolin look badass as Cable or what? With Josh Brolin hitting the big 5-0, the actor is now the same age as Cable’s creator and that is indeed 100 years of awesome with both men having been a part of creating some truly memorable characters and stories over the years. I like the hashtag teasing the Brolinaissance. I don’t know if Josh Brolin needs a renaissance, a la how Matthew McConaughey did, but with the actor’s slate this year, it’s hard to argue. Josh Brolin gets to be Cable in Deadpool 2, Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War and he is also returning for Sicario 2: Soldado. Brolinaissance indeed. Rob Liefeld even got to rock one of Cable’s gloves for a time. Gloves, pouches, utility belts and gigantic guns are iconic, if occasionally made fun of, elements of Rob Liefeld’s Cable design and it’s cool to see Josh Brolin’s on-screen portrayal maintaining that.
