Has DEADPOOL 2 Found its Cable?

Ever since the end-credits scene of Deadpool promised the arrival of Cable in the inevitable sequel, we’ve been eager to see which actor would step into the role of Marvel’s most famous time-traveling mutant. Now, we’ve heard rumors before, but there’s a surprising new contender for Cable, and he might be a former James Bond. Today’s Nerdist News is unraveling the complicated timelines and investigating the truth!

Thanks to this pic from Ryan Reynolds‘ Instagram account, the current speculation is that four-time Bond, Pierce Brosnan could be playing Cable in Deadpool 2. We have to admit that it’s an intriguing, if not very conventional choice. That’s if Reynolds and soon-to-be former Wolverine, Hugh Jackman aren’t pranking us—which is definitely always possible. Still, the important thing to know about Cable is that he’s the son of Cyclops and Madelyne Pryor (a Jean Grey clone) who was raised in the far future to battle Apocalypse. By the time that Cable came back to the present, he was actually older than his parents. So basically, he’s one of the few X-Men related characters with a more complicated and convoluted backstory than the films themselves!

Is Brosnan a good fit for Cable? He’s definitely got the action chops to pull off Cable’s grizzled veteran warrior side. Cable is a very serious character who only rarely cracks a smile or a joke, but that’s what makes him such a great foil for Deadpool. Considering that Deadpool 2 is slated to film later this year, 20th Century Fox is likely to announce Cable’s casting within the next few months.

What do you think about Brosnan as a potential Cable? If not him, who would you cast in the role? Let’s discuss in the comment section below!
