Josh Brolin Cast as Cable in Deadpool 2
So it looks like 20th Century Fox has found their Cable for the upcoming Deadpool sequel. According to The Hollywood Reporter, none other than Josh Brolin will be playing the part of the time traveling, techno organic soldier. Personally I think he is a pretty decent pick for this role. However, I’ll never understand why movie studios refuse to listen to their fan base and cast an actor or actress that fans have rallied for. Still, Josh Brolin is a pretty solid choice and I’m pretty positive that he will make for a good Nathan Summers.
I will definitely say thank God they did not decide to go with Michael Shannon for the role of Cable. However, I find it interesting that Josh Brolin will be playing 2 marvel characters for 2 different movie studios. As most of you know he is already cast as the mighty Thanos in the MCU and is contracted to play that character for 4 movies. Honestly though, I think the contrasting personalities of Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin will make for some very entertaining moments in the next Deadpool movie and I’m excited to see Deadpool and Cable on the big screen.
