Josh Brolin has been very busy in the world of cinematic superhero adventures. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Brolin plays the role of the all-powerful Thanos. Thanos is the super-nemesis battling The Avengers in the upcoming Infinity War film. Over in FOX’s X-Men Universe, Brolin is playing the mutant Cable in the highly-anticipated Deadpool 2.
Whether Brolin’s performance of Cable will be embraced by fans won’t be known until the release day arrives. So far, all we have to go on is the image of the “cool Cable haircut” Brolin is sporting.
Yes, the hair style Brolin sports in the preview images for the film garners news among fans of all things X-Men. The haircut is not a perfect rendition of the one Cable sports in the comics, but it is good enough. Fans should appreciate attempt at being faithful to the comic character.
Casual fans of comic book movies might not think little touches such as recreating a faithful haircut means anything. Getting the look of the character right really is important and not just to the serious film fans. Crafting the perfect rendition of the character helps Josh Brolin out quite a bit as well.
Actors who feel enthusiasm for a role are more likely to perform well. Audiences do take to actors who really get into a role. There is a certain realness associated with enthusiastic performances. When extra care goes into making sure the character created for the screen is faithful to the original concept, a little extra enthusiasm is generated in the actor’s direction.
And then there is a big question that needs to be asked. Will Brolin appear in a solo film featuring Cable? FOX absolutely would love to add another hit franchise to their production schedule. Let’s leave it at that.
