Josh Brolin Cast as Cable in Deadpool 2

Deadpool Cable Casting News

After months of speculation, Cable has finally been cast.

Despite already playing Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Josh Brolin has now been cast in a different Marvel-affiliated superhero property: he's going to be playing Cable in Deadpool 2.

The cast comes after more than a year of speculation following the post-credits scene in the first Deadpool, during which time the eponymous character, played by Ryan Reynolds, mentioned that the character would appear in the sequel, and that maybe Keira Knightley would be a good fit.

Since then, it feels like everyone has been "attached" the role. Michael Shannon, Pierce Brosnan, - even someone like Brad Pitt has been rumored.

Ryan Reynolds has since joked about the casting on Twitter.

Directed by John Wick co-director David Leitch, Deadpool 2 is currently scheduled to hit theaters sometime in 2018. It starts filming in June.

Deadpool: Hey Thanos, no Infinity Gauntlet for you here.

Would have been hilarious to see Ron Perlman as Cable though; I mean he already kind of looks like him.

I heard Stephen Lang was enthusiastic to be Cable too, and somehow I believed that would be case since he looks so much like him.

Huh... I thought Josh Brolin was a black guy. In a BTS pic of Thanks he sure looked like it. Must have been really weird lighting.

Oh come on, we all know Keira Knightley would have been up for it! It would have been great seeing everyone treat a tiny woman as an enormous grizzled man!

Something you may have missed from Ryan Reynold's Twitter:

I just went from my normal "Fuck yeah! Deadpool news!!!" to being super bummed. Ron Pearlman would have been absolutely perfect for the role and he's someone that never even crossed my mind until you said it.

Ignorance truly is bliss....*sigh :'(

Ron Perlman would be great as a lot of cartoon characters (Batou from GitS another one). But the man is pushing 70, he's probably not in consideration any more as an action hero.
