Deadpool 2 rumors just keep flying around as the fire was stoked again by the teaser set before Logan. However, a supposedly crucial part of the Deadpool sequel is either being kept secret or has not yet been worked out. Cable, a frequent frenemy of Deadpool, has still not been publicly cast despite several rumors that suggest otherwise. One rumor for a Cable casting was started after Ryan Reynold’s posted a picture of himself, Pierce Brosnan and Hugh Jackman on a bench waiting at an airport.
Though Reynolds didn’t tease anything, fans went into an uproar when they realized that Brosnan’s silver hair and muscular physique might would make for an exceptional Cable. Unfortunately for those who were fond of this supposed casting, Brosnan himself has now denied that he has any sort of role in Deadpool 2, much less that he is Cable.
At the 3:20 mark in the video below, Jimmy Kimmel starts asking about the photograph in question, and whether the rumors had any credence to them.
I actually think that Brosnan is one of the only well known actors that I would like in the role, although Russell Crowe certainly interests me as well. However, as Kimmel brings up, it is important to note that Brosnan very well could be acting (that is his job you know) that he doesn’t have a role because the studio told him not to tell anyone. Let’s not forget that Jason Mamoa apparently spent around 5 years dodging (or denying) any questions about Aguaman.
Who’s your personal pick for Cable? Are you disappointed that Brosnan might not be the guy for the role? Let us know in the comments!
Deadpool 2 currently has no release date.
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.
