Josh Brolin has reportedly signed a four picture deal to play Cable in Deadpool 2.

Is it real? Brolin most recently came to the big screen as Eddie Mannix in last year’s Hail, Caeser!  Comic book fans will know him from the multiple MCU films as the mad Titan Thanos.

The highly talked topic of “Who will play Cable?” started with the credits scene from the first Deadpool film. The tease issued by none other than Deadpool himself.

Cable, also known as Nathan Summers, is the child of Scott Summers (Cyclops) and Madelyne Pryor (a clone of Jean Grey), who was transported into the future as an infant. For years Cable popped in and out of Marvel’s main continuity and timeline. In 2004 Cable was paired with Deadpool in Cable & Deadpool. Their polar opposite personalities has made Cable a constant inside of Deadpool comics ever since. While the characters have a hilarious and sometimes violent chemistry, the two are often depicted and expected together. Such was the case with Deadpool in 2016.

The biggest news here isn’t necessarily Cable’s casting. If Brolin does appear as Cable, he will be the first actor to appear in both the FMU and the MCU simultaneously. I know, it’s shocking. FOX’s history of being unwilling to accept any sort of agreement with Marvel Entertainment has caused quite a rift between the two companies. If Brolin signed a four picture deal, will he still be allowed to appear in the MCU?

This story will continue to draw attention as it unfolds.
