With the mid-credits scene from Deadpool, fans of the Merc with the Mouth are going crazy. They certainly should be, a tease of Cable in Deadpool 2 got me pumped up too. The biggest question is, who should play Cable.

Following Deadpool’s release, hundreds of possibilities have been suggested, and several actors are actively campaigning for the role. To be perfectly clear, Fox has not settled on a single actor. However, one particular actor has recently been ruled out for sure. That actor is none other than Bloodline‘s Kyle Chandler, and it seems that director Tim Miller is departing with Chandler.

Miller had not been officially attached to the project, but it was considered a given considering Deadpool‘s box office performance. The departure comes as a result of a dispute between Miller and Deadpool star, Ryan Reynolds. Miller had picked Chandler to play as the more stoic and serious Cable, AKA Nathan Summers. Reynolds disagreed and the dispute went before FOX who ultimately sided with Reynolds. Whether or not anything more occurred in the dispute is unclear. However, Miller has gone on record to say that the decision has not strained relations between him and FOX. The personal and professional relationship between Reynolds and Miller have not been commented upon. Nor has the names of any of Ryan Reynolds picks or suggestions.
