There’s a New Cable in Town for Deadpool 2 – “#WolverineBondDeadpool”

Ever since the post-credits scene in the Deadpool movie, where the bathrobe-clad titular character reveals that his sidekick Cable would be in the sequel, the internet has run rampant with ideas on who would be best suited to play the grizzled, telepathic warrior from the future. The actors at the top of most of the shortlists out there tend to be the same people, with the most popular picks being Stephen Lang, Dolph Lundgren and Mel Gibson, with the occasional inclusion of Keira Knightley, owing in no small part to Deadpool himself’s half-joking-but-not-really suggestion that she would be perfect for the role (and let’s face it, she totally would be). Leading man Ryan Reynolds threw some fuel onto the speculation fire this morning when he posted this picture from his Instagram account featuring himself, Hugh Jackman, and Pierce Brosnan in a very familiar pose involving three monkeys.

As you can see, they don’t seem to be in a telling mood, but whatever brought them together in the same room, it can only mean good things. While we already know that Deadpool won’t be making an appearance in Jackman’s spin-off film Logan, that doesn’t mean we won’t see him reprise his role as Wolverine in Deadpool 2 alongside Reynolds and (maybe!) Brosnan, even if it’s just a cameo! Hugh Jackman later sent out another picture from the action star meetup through Twitter.

Pierce Brosnan is, of course, most recognizable as James Bond, starring in the 007 movies in the ‘90’s and the early part of the 2000s, beginning with Goldeneye and ending with Die Another Day. His portrayal of the beloved British spy was more suave and low key, in comparison to current 007 actor Daniel Craig’s rough-and-tumble approach. That said, given Deadpool’s penchant for breaking the fourth wall, I can only imagine the wealth of jokes at Mr. Pool’s disposal if a former James Bond actor becomes his sidekick. It wouldn’t surprise me at all to see them both sitting on a couch playing Goldeneye 007 at some point in the movie!

Remember, at this time this is all speculation, but with Deadpool 2 set to begin filming in June 2017, it’s only a matter of time before we start seeing some official casting news, and DFTG will be here to cover it when it happens! So, who do you think should be cast as Cable? Would you want to see Pierce Brosnan fill those shoes, or should someone else? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments below!
