Josh Brolin Cast as Cable for Deadpool 2
It has been announced that Josh Brolin has been cast in the upcoming "Deadpool 2" film. He will be playing the role of Cable. Brolin has been involved with the Marvel Universe before, as Thanos.
Brolin's character, also known as Nathan Summers, has been pared up with "Deadpool" in many of the comics, including their own series. As a child, he was sent to the future where he became a warrior, and eventually came back to present day. His appearance in the film was teased in the "Deadpool" scene before the "Logan" film, where a message on a phone booth read, "Nathan Summers cumming [yes, that's the correct spelling] soon!"
"Deadpool" had a hugely successful box office, earning over $782 million worldwide, and became the highest-grossing R-rated film in history.
