Is Josh Brolin's New Cable Pic a Stryfe Tease?

Having nabbed a June 1, 2018 release date - which in itself could be a plot hint - Deadpool 2 won’t just be your garden-variety sequel. It will also be the first X-Men film to feature Cable, a mutant long overdue for a big-screen appearance. Thankfully, it appears that Josh Brolin owns the part in official pics of the character.

Most recently, the actor posted a new behind-the-scenes image. At first glance, it might not tell us much; it's just Josh Brolin channeling what anyone would feel after three months of sharing a set with Deadpool.

The hashtags are what's most interesting about the picture. Those last ones ones don’t really stand out, but #cableinsanity could be more of note. Check out the pic below!

Oh my God, wait until you see Deadpool. It's SO funny!!!

Back to that insanity thing, fans are speculating that Josh Brolin might actually have two roles in Deadpool 2.

He's screaming into a broken mirror, so he's basically screaming in his own face!

Brolin plays Cable, son of Cyclops and a Jean Grey clone, and a soldier from the future. Fans are speculating that the second character - the guy in the broken mirror - is Stryfe, who's Cable's complete opposite: a tremendous clone-supervillain who was raised by Apocalypse.

Of course, it's all just speculation. But adding Stryfe, a time-traveling supervillain, into the mix could fix some of the inconsistencies in the X-Men universe timeline. In addition, Stryfe would be a more than worthy adversary in the upcoming X-Force film.

What do you think? Is everyone reading too much into this?
