Josh Brolin To Play Cable In Deadpool 2

Oscar-nominated actor Josh Brolin is joining Ryan Reynolds in 20th Century Fox's forthcoming Deadpool sequel where he will play the mutant Cable opposite Reynolds' titular character.

The search for an actor to step into Cable's shoes has been going for a few months, with names such as Michael Shannon and David Harbour being mentioned, with the former almost nabbing the role, as well as rumors of conversations between Fox and actors Russell Crowe and Brad Pitt.

For Brolin, Cable will be his second time playing a Marvel character following his landing of the role of Thanos in the MCU.

According to THR's sources, the actor signed a four-film deal with Fox, meaning Cable is here to stay.

John Wick co-director David Leitch is directing the yet untitled film, which is set to go into production this June in Vancouver.

Besides Reynolds, Brolin joins Atlanta breakout star Zazie Beetz as the super powered mercenary Domino.

Created in mid 80's by Rob Liefeld and Louise Jones Simonson, Cable is the son of X-Men leader Cyclops and Madelyne Pryor, a clone of Jean Grey. His powers (some via gadgets) include astral projection, blast power, force fields, levitation, precognition, super strength, technopathy, telekinesis, telepathy, teleportation, and time travel.
