Thanos Actor Josh Brolin Has Signed On To Play Cable In DEADPOOL 2

After an exhaustive search that included Brad Pitt, Pierce Brosnan and Stranger Things' David Harbour, Fox has snagged Josh Brolin to play Cable alongside Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool 2.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Josh Brolin has signed a 4-picture deal to play Cable in Deadpool 2.  The well documented search included the likes of Michael Shannon, Brad Pitt, David Harbour and even Russell Crowe as Fox looked high and low for the right actor to star alongside Ryan Reynolds' Wade Wilson.  What this development means for Brolin's role as Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe moving forward post Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 is anyone's guess.

Previously,  Zazie Beetz, the breakout star from FX's Atlanta was cast as Domino. John Wick director David Leitch assumes the reins from Tim Miller after he and the studio couldn't agree on where to take the franchise (it's rumored that the casting for Cable was one of the points of contention).  THR's report adds that filming is expected to start this June in Vancouver.

Presumably, Brolin's 4-picture deal will include a leading role in the rumored X-Force spinoff.
