After months of speculation and rumours, “Deadpool 2” has finally found its Cable in Josh Brolin.

But wait, isn’t the 49-year-old actor playing another well-known character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Although he’s already playing supervillain Thanos in the forthcoming “Avengers: Infinity War”, that didn’t stop him from notching the role of Deadpool’s time-traveling friend.

Brolin will join “Atlanta” breakout star Zazie Beetz (who will play his love interest, Domino) in the “Deadpool” sequel along with the Merc with a Mouth himself, Ryan Reynolds.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brolin has signed a 4 picture deal to portray Cable in “Deadpool 2” and presumably other “X-Men” movies such as “X-Force” and a possible 3rd “Deadpool” instalment.

Thanks to fan art maestro BossLogic, fans are now able to have an exclusive look at what Brolin might look like as Cable. The visual concept shows the actor in cropped grey hair with a torn armoured torso and strapped yellow work pants.

In case you didn’t know, Cable, who appeared on Marvel’s “New Mutants #98”, is the son of Scott Summers (Cyclops) and Madelyne Pryor (a clone of Jean Grey). This piece of history most probably won’t be brought up in “Deadpool 2” as the focus may centre on the polar opposite personalities between Cable and Deadpool.

Not long after the official announcement was made, Reynolds took to Twitter to poke fun Brolin’s casting. In true Deadpool fashion, he tweeted a funny photo featuring a cup of latte with Brolin’s face alongside a condom with all of the Gold Girl’s names on it.

It appears that the majority of people are genuinely excited to watch Brolin take on the role of Cable.

“Deadpool 2” is currently slated for release in March 2018.
