But who will he be if they ever adapt “Deadpool vs Thanos”?
The news was reported first by THR. Brolin has signed a four-movie deal to play Cable in the likes of Deadpool 2, X-Force, and other mutant movies in Fox’s stable of Marvel heroes.
Seems like every actor has been rumored to play the time-traveling mutant. From Brad Pitt to Pierce Brosnan. The front runner being the former Kryptonian general in Michael Shannon. But in the ashes of that failed deal, out of left field, Josh Brolin swoops in and snags the role. Now i know what you’re thinking, no he was not previously reported to be in the running, and honestly I like the casting. I think that Brolin could play the role well and would play off of Ryan Reynold’s Deadpool very well.
