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 Reynolds is joking about how some fans have an issue with Brolin playing Thanos and Cable simultaneously, although the two characters are not in the same cinematic universe. In the image itself, Reynolds teases Cable and Domino (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.
Do you have a problem with the Josh Brolin casting? As long as it’s not another Jonah Hex fiasco, I think he’s a fantastic choice. 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.
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.
Did I miss your favorite character? Well, let me know in the comment section why they should be included! So hit Next to see the eight mutants I think Fox should bring to the big-screen next!
