Josh Brolin Cast As Cable For “Deadpool 2”

Josh Brolin Cable Deadpool 2.001

It’s Jonah Hex! No, It’s Thanos! No, It’s Cable? And, Josh Brolin just bagged another superhero role for the books in “Deadpool 2.”

Thanos won’t be the only Marvel comic persona Josh Brolin will be bringing to the big screen in 2018. The long endured internet speculation stops today as Josh Brolin is tapped to take on the role of Cable in the hotly-anticipated “Deadpool 2.”



Just as fans begin to settle into the thought of “Man Of Steel’s” Zod actor, Michael Shannon, playing the grizzled mercenary from the future, Brolin comes out of nowhere and bags the role of Cable. That’s right “Sicario,” “Men In Black 3” and “Old Boy” actor Josh Brolin has RKO’d the long list of rumored potential players, trouncing big names from Brad Pitt to former “Bond” actor Pierce Brosnan.

Again, it’s a bit miraculous that Brolin will play not one, but TWO different Marvel comics adapted characters on the big screen in 2018, simultaneously playing both Cable in “Deadpool 2” as well as Thanos in “Avengers: Infinity War.” The reason possibly lies in the fact that two different studios, Fox and Disney respectively, own the two properties. Also, “Avengers: Infinity War” is already filming and “Deadpool 2”… well, they JUST cast their Cable. Does this mean Disney and Fox are coming to some sort of accord for future Marvel movies, or is Thanos gonna get killed off at the conclusion of “Infinity War?” I guess the internet has something new to speculate about.

Brolin has proven himself as both a fan favorite and a box office breadwinner, thus leaving no doubt he will bring nothing short of his A-Game to the “Deadpool” sequel project. According to an exclusive report by The Hollywood Reporter, Brolin is signing on for four films and will likely begin shooting the current installment in Vancouver starting sometime in June.

A returning cast of Ryan Reynolds, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand and Karan Soni, along with newcomer Zazie Beetz as Domino, will hit the theaters sometime in 2018 for “Deadpool 2.” The film will be directed by “John Wick” and “John Wick: Chapter 2’s” David Leitch.

About The Author


Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path. From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film. Recently, Pooya was approached by to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at, he was home.
