After working his arms into insane shape to play Cable in Deadpool 2, Josh Brolin is getting a face to match.

In a behind-the-scenes photo posted to Instagram on Wednesday, the actor shared a glimpse of his plaster-coated mug and hinted that he’s getting a striking cybernetic makeover in the superhero sequel.

“Insanity on the brink,” Brolin wrote. “Face is morphing into something machine, fierce, hair sliced, arm machined, bulged. Where is Deadpool?!?”

In Marvel Comics lore, Cable (a.k.a. Nathan Summers) is the time-displaced son of the X-Men heroes Cyclops and Jean Grey. He’s usually depicted as a brawny mercenary with a bionic arm, a glowing eye, and an arsenal of high-tech weaponry.

Brolin is starring in Deadpool 2 opposite Ryan Reynolds as the titular antihero, Zazie Beetz as Domino, and Jack Kesy as the presumptive villain. The film is slated to arrive next June.
