According to The Hollywood Reporter, Josh Brolin has been cast as Cable in Deadpool 2. The superhero sequel has been on the hunt for an actor to play Cable for months, with names like Brad Pitt and Michael Shannon in the mix.
Brolin is a surprising choice as he is already tied up playing the villainous Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. THR also reports that Brolin has officially signed onto the project and his contract is for four movies.
Cable is a fan favourite character in Marvel comics, and is often seen alongside Deadpool. The two characters are polar opposites, which explains why they work so well together.
