Is there bad blood?

It seems Josh Brolin won’t be returning as Cable for Deadpool and Wolverine. The actor gives a joking response when asked about his absence.

Many fans immediately took notice at the lack of Cable in the first Deadpool and Wolverine trailer. Given the character’s large role in Deadpool 2 and his device being the catalyst of the film, it was shocking that Josh Brolin seemingly missed out on the next entry in the franchise. When asked if he was in the film and why not if he wasn’t, Brolin took a playful shot at Ryan Reynolds.

 “No.” Brolin answered in a recent Collider interview before following it up with “I don’t know. Because Ryan [Reynolds] doesn’t like me?”

While there likely isn’t any REAL bad blood between Josh Brolin and Ryan Reynolds, it’s likely fans won’t find out the real reason Cable isn’t in Deadpool and Wolverine until long after the film’s release. It could be anything as simple as scheduling constraints to some world ending revelation. Though regardless, it’s clear Brolin isn’t hurting for projects giving his upcoming role in Dune: Part Two!

Who else is attached to the Deadpool threequel?

Shawn Levy is directing Deadpool and Wolverine after working with Ryan Reynolds on Free Guy and The Adam Project. The upcoming Marvel Studios project also marks a reunion between Levy and Hugh Jackman as the two worked together on Real Steel.
