Ending all speculations and talks about who would play the
character of the time travelling soldier, Cable, in Deadpool 2, it
has been confirmed now that No Country for Old Men actor Josh
Brolin sealed the deal for four potential movies.
According to the reports, Brolin will be seen portraying the
character of Cable in director David Leitch's forthcoming and
much-anticipated film Deadpool 2. However, there were some big
names in contention to play this character, including Michael
Shannon, David Harbour and Brad Pitt.
Despite Brolin sealing a new contract as Cable with Fox, he will
still continue his association with Marvel Studios as Thanos. It
will be interesting to see how Brolin manages to juggle his role
and characters efficiently between the two.
Ryan Reynolds, who plays the lead as Deadpool, posted a humorous
tweet following the confirmation of Josh Brolin to play Cable in
"The f***, Fox! You can't play 2 characters in the same
universe!! Josh Brolin was in Sicario and I was in Sabrina The
Teenage Witch." Said Ryan Reynolds.
The character of Cable has been created jointly by Louise
Simonson and Rob Liefeld and has been viewed exactly the opposite
of what Deadpool is. Cable is the son of Scott Summers, also known
as the X-Men Cyclops and thus like the father he is more controlled
by his thoughts and actions.
