Many have already commented about Josh Brolin’s casting as Cable in Deadpool 2, but there has not been any word from Ryan Reynolds himself until now. Reynolds finally tweeted a humorous response to some of the commentary about Josh Brolin now playing two characters from the Marvel Universe. Look at the tweet and picture below:
The fuck, Fox! You can't play 2 characters in the same universe!! Josh Brolin was in Sicario and I was in Sabrina The Teenage Witch. pic.twitter.com/AQCRp1aWKg

Obviously, Ryan Reynolds is joking about how some fans have an issue with Josh Brolin playing the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Thanos and Fox’s Cable simultaneously, although the two characters don’t exist in the same world. In the image itself, Reynolds teases Cable and Domino (played by Zazie Beetz) in the left corner who are now both cast and will be the side characters in the Deadpool sequel. He also leaves a nice Golden Girls reference in classic Deadpool fashion.
As long as it’s not another Jonah Hex fiasco, I think that Josh Brolin is a fantastic choice for the role of Cable in Deadpool 2. Like it or not, looks like he’ll be around for at least 4 films!
Deadpool 2 has no release date, but with the Cable finally cast, we may get one in the near future. Stay with Heroic Hollywood for any future updates.
