DEADPOOL 2: Here's How Many Movies Josh Brolin Has Signed Up For As Cable

DEADPOOL 2: Here's How Many Movies Josh Brolin Has Signed Up For As Cable

Josh Brolin will bring Cable to the big screen for the first time in Deadpool 2 next year but how many more appearances can we expect the Avengers: Infinity War star to make in Fox's X-Men Universe?

While we're all excited to see Josh Brolin's take on Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, it's going to be even more thrilling to see what he does with Cable in Deadpool 2. However, the actor has now revealed that he very nearly decided against signing up for the sequel and it was because his plans to star in another movie fell through that he chose to read the screenplay (his wife helped with that too). 

"At first I was like, ‘I don’t know. I want to do George and Tammy.’ My wife — thank god — said to just read it. ‘Why are you even talking, just read it,’" Brolin revealed before going on to confirm that he's signed up for four movies set in Fox's X-Men Universe starting with next year's Deadpool 2

"I was thinking big about the four-picture deal. So, on my
phone I remember I read it. It was so irreverent and funny and hysterical that once I got through it I was like, ‘that’s it.’ I had no idea [about] the fan-base. I had no idea what it represented, and I think we’ve made something really special." Brolin is presumably talking about Deadpool 3 and two instalments of the X-Force franchise. 

There are a lot of factors in regards to whether or not Brolin will fulfil that four-picture obligation but given the success of Deadpool last year, chances are he'll stick around as Cable for a long time to come.
