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 Deadpool 2.
"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.
