Ryan Reynolds is assuring Deadpool fans that the sequel will include some "premium cable."

The 40-year-old leading man shared the first photo of Josh Brolin as Cable on Monday, along with a witty message. "We all have that one, grumpy, heavily armed Uncle from the future. #PremiumCABLE #JoshBrolin," he captioned a close-up image of his co-star in character.

Reynolds later posted a full body shot of Brolin as Cable, writing: "DeadPool 2: Your premium #Cable provider. #DeadPool2."

Fans will be thrilled to see that Brolin's costume stays somewhat true to the comic book character, complete with facial scars and a cybernetic eye. The 49-year-old actor also shared the pics of himself as Cable on Instagram, along with the caption: "Now offering 25 percent off your next autopsy. ☠️ #youremine #deadpool"

Brolin has been teasing his Deadpool 2 transformation all summer with photos and videos from the gym. He also recently revealed how he came to get so in shape for the role.

"Totally clean: no sugar, no breads, no pastas, no drugs, none of it. Fish, rice, eggs, veggies, water, one @bulletproof or @cavemancoffeeco in the morning," he captioned a video of himself pumping iron in June. "I'm almost 50. It's a different time: our access along with some big picture discipline results in always surprising milestones. Get on the train. #wedontf**karound. #itaintthathard #startslowandlight @weprevail #ryanreynoldsismyb**ch."

Last month, Reynolds also offered a first look at Zazie Beetz as Domino, tweeting: "Some people just know how to work a red carpet. #Domino #DeadPool2."

Deadpool 2 hits theaters on June 1, 2018.
