Deadpool 2


Recommended Posts

Ever since Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) revealed in the after-credits scene of his 2016 R-rated blockbuster that Cable would appear in the sequel, everyone has been speculating who would play the time-traveling mutant with a bionic-arm, a gray flat-top, and a messiah complex. Now, it appears as though it will be Pierce Brosnan, the former James Bond.


On today's episode of Meet the Movie Press, Forbes's Simon Thompson said he chatted with director David Leitch at the world premiere of John Wick: Chapter 2, and after he congratulated Leitch on landing the Deadpool 2 gig, he tried to lure Leitch into confirming a casting rumor. "So I said, 'Congratulations on casting Pierce Brosnan,'" Thompson explained, "and he went, 'We have not yet.'"


Mashable's Jeff Sneider then chimed in, "[Variety's] Justin [Kroll] can't say anything, but, yeah, I've heard it's going to him."


Well, if Brosnan does indeed land the role, Thompson says all reveals for the film ? character and casting ? will come from its star and producer, Ryan Reynolds. So keep a close eye on his Twitter account.

Josh Brolin will play the key role of Cable opposite Ryan Reynolds in ?Deadpool 2.?


Michael Shannon had been the frontrunner for the role, but the studio and Marvel have opted for Brolin, who has appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the villain Thanos.


An official release date for the sequel has not yet been announced. ?John Wick? co-director David Leitch came on board to lead ?Deadpool 2? last fall after Tim Miller dropped out due to creative differences with Reynolds. The superhero sequel also recently cast ?Atlanta? breakout Zazie Beetz as the mutant mercenary Domino.
