Josh Brolin is Cable in Deadpool 2
The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop that Josh Brolin will be time sliding into the coveted role of Cable in Deadpool 2. That concludes whirlwind rumors, and tons of “xyz actor has been offered” the role that these types of things lead to (yay clickbait!). The deal with Brolin is for four movies.
This is the second comic role Brolin will be embodying as he’s also Thanos in the Marvel Universe films. Cable, while also a Marvel character, is in Fox’s universe of X-Men related films.
Brolin has been numerous comic films beyond Thanos in the Marvel Unvierse. He was Jonah Hex in Jonah Hex, Young Agent K in Men in Black 3, and Dwight in Sin City: A Dam to Kill For.
Zazie Beetz was announced not too long ago as Domino in Deadpool 2.
Cable was created by Rob Liefeld and Luise Simonson and is the son of Scott Summers, aka Cyclops, who is sent into the future and returns older and through time travel.
Liefeld said about the casting:
Josh Brolin brings both the gravitas as well as the physicality required to bring Cable to life on the big screen! He’s an amazing actor and I’m as excited as anyone to see him paired with Ryan Reynolds, Zazie Beets in Deadpool 2!! Cable, Domino and Deadpool people!! It’s happening!!!
Brolin will be seen as Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War in 2018.
