After months of rumors and speculation about who would play Cable in Deadpool 2, it has been officially announced today that the role will go to Josh Brolin. Yes, that’s right: The man currently playing Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will also play Nathan Summers.
The sequel is reportedly scheduled to begin production this summer, with John Wick co-director David Leitch at the helm. Before Brolin’s casting, the sequel had added Atlanta‘s Zazie Beetz as Domino.
Michael Shannon was originally the frontrunner to play Cable, however no statement about the decision behind Brolin’s casting has been issued yet.
