Fans have been geeking out to get a peek at Josh Brolin as Cable in Deadpool 2, and now star Ryan Reynolds has finally obliged. Thankfully, it was worth the wait.

The first two pics of Brolin as Cable showcase a costume and look that should make comic fans more than happy, as Cable has the gray hair, the cybernetic arm, and the cybernetic eye. They’ve simplified the look of the costume into, essentially, an old pair of fatigues — but he’s still rocking some pouches, and the lines serve as a slight homage to the comic look. Thanfully, there are no shoulder pads to be found. Overall, the casting looks to be pitch-perfect, and we can’t wait to see Brolin sparring with Reynolds’ Deadpool.

Deadpool 2 is tentatively set for release on June 1, 2018.
