In less than two days, fans lucky enough to snag Thursday night tickets will finally be seeing Deadpool 2, the much-anticipated sequel starring everyone's favorite fourth-wall-breaking, chimichanga-loving mutant mercenary. The film's marketing has been endlessly entertaining, reviews are strong, and box-office projections are good, but that doesn't mean the promotional machine is slowing down just yet.

No, the film's stars are still making the rounds this week to make sure everyone's pumped for Deadpool's next adventure, and that means at least a little more new footage to tide you over until the film's out.

Josh Brolin, who had the honor of playing the mutant Cable in the character's big-screen debut, stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Tuesday night, and while a good portion of the conversation focused on his acclaimed performance as Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, Fallon did eventually get around to bringing up Cable. After discussing just how big the internet response to his casting was and crediting his wife for encouraging him to read the Deadpool 2 script, Brolin unveiled a clip from the film featuring his first major encounter with Ryan Reynolds' Wade Wilson.

In the clip, Cable has just broken into a prison where Deadpool's been taken (long story, you'll understand when you see the film), and the two have already started to clash. As you know from the trailers, Cable's after a young mutant named Russell (Julian Dennison), and Deadpool's trying to stop him. The clip doesn't really get into too much detail on that front (best left for the full viewing experience), but it does feature Cable revealing to Deadpool that he's from the future, which prompts a set of very serious questions... including one about the future of dubstep. Check it out, followed by a clip of the interview itself.

Of course, this is the network TV edit, so you can expect a bit more R-rated language in the theatrical version, but it's still a really fun first encounter, and it only gets crazier from there.

Deadpool 2 is in theaters everywhere Friday.
