According to reports from Screenrant via THR, Josh Brolin has been cast as Cable in the upcoming Deadpool 2. Following the end of the first film where it was hinted that the character will appear in the sequel, it has been an endless stream of information on casting choices where names like Michael Shannon and former James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan were mentioned.
Josh Brolin is also playing Thanos in the upcoming Avengers:Infinity Wars. As to how he’ll be able to manage handling two comic book characters, he’s not the first in these shoes, but may be one of those who’s attempting to pull it off at almost the same time. It’s also worth noting that his casting comes as a surprise with no reports of his discussion with execs before now.
Regarding the character, Josh Brolin has the chops, physicality and grimace to pull it off, but his hairdo will have to undergo some changes.
Deadpool 2 will debut at cinemas sometime in 2018
