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.”
Deadpool 2, starring Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson, Zazie Beetz as Domino, Josh Brolin as Cable, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Stefan Kapicic as Piotr Nikolaievitch Rasputin a.k.a.

8 X-Men Characters Who Deserve Their Own Movie
So it’s probably safe to assume everyone here has seen Logan? Well, based on how well it did in the box-office I think Fox is taking notes. Now that they have both Deadpool and Logan under their belts, I’m sure they will be bringing more X-Men characters to the big-screen as soon as possible.
There are so many great X-Men arcs to choose from, but I think focusing on personal stories and fewer characters is a way to ensure the movie connects with an audience. Mutants were originally composed as a metaphor for the Civil Rights movement, and that issue is still very much so alive in our society. I’m not saying every movie needs to be political, but they all have the potential to be about so much more than destruction and boss battles. Fox focus on smaller, personal stories that show mutants in a different light. Sure they can kick ass, but let’s make sure they always feel like real people, as Logan did.
