Breaking: Josh Brolin will play Cable in Deadpool 2!

After a long casting process that saw names like Brad Pitt, Michael Shannon, Russell Crowe, David Harbour and Kyle Chandler tossed about, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Josh Brolin (No Country for Old Men, Old Boy) has been cast as Cable in 20th Century Fox‘s Deadpool 2! The deal is said to be for four films, which could potentially include Deadpool 3 as well as the planned X-Force movie.

This will not be the 49-year-old Brolin’s first comic book rodeo, having appeared in Jonah HexSin City: A Dame to Kill For, Men in Black 3, and as Thanos within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

We recently talked to screenwriter Rhett Reese, who gave us a taste of what the relationship between Cable and the Merc with a Mouth will be like in the upcoming sequel. “Ryan plays Deadpool with a hint of femininity, and I think that can be funny opposite a Cable who’s über-masculine,” Reese told us. “That’ll come into casting and performance and the character design and his wardrobe and things like that too. I think we’ll definitely play into that.”

Deadpool 2 is set to introduce two key characters from the X-Force world, including Zazie Beetz (Atlanta) as Domino, a luck-manipulating mutant, and Cable, the time-traveling son of the X-Men’s Cyclops. It’s also been confirmed that both an X-Force movie and a Deadpool 3 are being planned as separate follow-ups to Deadpool 2.

John Wick‘s David Leitch is directing Deadpool 2 from a screenplay by the returning “real heroes here,” screenwriters Reese and Paul Wernick. Reynolds is again serving as a producer on Deadpool 2 alongside X-Men franchise caretakers Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner.
