Today we finally got answers to who will be playing the Marvel character Cable in Deadpool 2 as Josh Brolin was officially cast. Stefan Kapicic, who voiced Colossus in the first installment and is set to return for the sequel, expressed his excitement about Brolin joining the franchise as this iconic character in a new interview with Comicbook.com right after the casting was made.
“I’m so excited about this casting, it’s the perfect casting for Cable. I’m a huge fan of Josh Brolin’s work. He’s an awesome actor and I’m totally excited to start working with him. It’s gonna be an amazing road for the X-Force movies, having someone like Josh Brolin to lead the franchise. Cable is one of my favorite characters and this is really something I was hoping for. He’s an unbelievable actor and a perfect cable. I think Fox made a perfect choice with Josh Brolin and I think that’s the spice we need for a sequel for Deadpool. Everything else about the movie was perfect, and this was the only missing piece that we now have. I’m so proud to be a part of this cast.”
