Why is James Bond hanging out with Wolverine and Deadpool?
Ryan Reynolds recently posted a photo of himself with Hugh Jackman and Pierce Brosnan on Instagram, stirring up speculation that perhaps the former 007 may be involved in the “Deadpool” sequel and is in the running for Cable.
The photo above, which Reynolds captioned “Wolvie. Bond. Wade.”, shows the trio reenacting the infamous “hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil” pose, implying that this meeting is a secret and they won’t be spilling any updates to the public. But that hasn’t stop fans from throwing around theories on social media.
For months now, there have been potential actors rumoured to be frontrunners for the role of the time-traveling badass Cable, who will team up will Deadpool in the sequel. Although Cable is one of the more important characters from X-Men and X-Force, he has never appeared in a movie before.
It didn’t take long for fan art maestro BossLogic to come up with an impressive illustration of Brosnan as a grizzled Cable, with silver hair and all. Do y’all think Brosnan is the right man for the job? While he may be an obvious choice, the 63-year-old actor has proven that he has the action chops and sense of humour to play the “X-Men” character.
Nothing official has been said yet, but Jackman himself added fuel to the fire when he tweeted a candid picture of the 3 of them having a laugh. Similarly, he didn’t hint at anything beyond the simple caption, “#WolverineBondDeadpool”. Still, it’s hard not to wonder what this meet up is all about.
Fingers crossed, these actors aren’t simply trolling us. Hopefully an official announcement will follow soon!
“Deadpool 2” is set for release on 2nd March 2018.
