Josh Brolin Cast as Cable for Deadpool 2

News has just come in from the Hollywood Reporter that Deadpool 2 has finally found its Cable; Josh Brolin has narrowly beat Keira Knightley for the role of of the cybernetic super-soldier in the upcoming sequel to Fox's Deadpool.  What's weird about this is Josh Brolin also plays Thanos in the MCU, but there doesn't seem to be any issue (as of now) with him doing work with another studio.  It looks like his contract with Fox will be for four films and Deadpool 2 will begin production later this year with the film set to release sometime in 2018.  

Cable has been in Marvel comics since 1991 and was co-created by Rob Liefeld and Louise Simonson.  He's a soldier with telekinetic powers that allow him to read and control minds as well as move objects telepathically.  On top of that, Cable also has a part cybernetic body that makes him stronger and harder to take down.  Being that Deadpool was also a creation of Liefeld, Deadpool and Cable have had a long history together and it should be a blast seeing the two characters together on the big screen along with Domino, another staple character of the "Deadpool-verse".  Keep checking in for more Deadpool news as it comes in.
