Josh Brolin is Cable In ‘Deadpool 2’

This is a pretty nice piece of casting but it looks like Josh Brolin will be playing Cable in the upcoming Deadpool 2.

According to THR “Josh Brolin has nabbed the hotly contested role of Cable opposite Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool 2, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The production has been on the warpath to find the right actor for the role for months, with Michael Shannon almost nabbing the role and Stranger Things star David Harbour on the shortlist. (There were even rumors of conversations with Russell Crowe and Brad Pitt.)

In the end, Brolin emerged as a surprise contender, notching his second Marvel Comics character in the process; the actor plays the villain Thanos in the Marvel Studios movies. Sources say Brolin’s deal is for four movies.

David Leitch is directing the sequel to Fox’s surprise blockbuster, with the Twentieth Century Fox movie heading toward a June production start in Vancouver.

Reynolds is reprising his role as the wisecracking mercenary, with the story expanding to include other characters from Deadpool’s corner of Marvel’s X-Men universe.”

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.

    I hope he bleaches his hair white, or has a really good wig, the character won’t work if it doesn’t look exactly like his comic counterpart. I’d worry he’s overexposing himself in comic book movies, but since he’s barely recognizable as Thanos due to the costume it shouldn’t be a problem. Overall smart casting, I’ve been a fan of his since The Young Riders.
