For Deadpool fans hoping to see the Merc With A Mouth make a cameo in Marvel’s Infinity War films, I have some bad news… Josh Brolin has been cast as Cable in Deadpool 2. Brolin has signed a four-film deal to play the character who was first teased in a post-credits scene of the original Deadpool film. While we only know of Deadpool 2 so far, and that film has not yet been given a release date, the other films will likely coincide with the planned X-Force film.
Brolin’s first on screen comics role came in 2014 when he assumed the role of Thanos in Marvel Studios’ cinematic universe, which exists separately from Fox’s Marvel universe. He also made a small cameo appearance as Thanos in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Brolin is set to reprise his role at Thanos in Marvel’s upcoming Avengers: Infinity War films. He also starred as DC’s Jonah Hex character in the 2010 film of the same name.
What do you think of Brolin being cast as Cable? Is he a good fit for Fox’s Marvel films? Let us know in the comments.
