If you haven’t heard by now, actor Josh Brolin (the man behind the CGI for Marvel’s big bad Thanos in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War films) has officially been c ast as Cable in the sequel to the surprise hit, Deadpool, for Fox. The news comes from THR, who is also stating that Brolin has signed a four-picture deal, which should factor in a couple X-Force films, as well.
I’ll be honest, I don’t hate this casting. Brolin kills every role he lands, and these days, he’s far from the youthful star he was in The Goonies: that grizzled look and tone will translate well to Nathan Summers.
Deadpool 2 has yet to be given an official release date.
