We know that Deadpool 2 has yet to begin filming as they have been searching for someone to play the role of Cable. Many names have been tossed around and at one point, it was even rumored at Brad Pitt had expressed an interest in the role. However it looks like Cable has been found which means that filming could begin soon.

In a report from The Hollywood Reporter, it seems that Josh Brolin has been cast as Cable. Now you might be a bit confused because Brolin has also been cast as Thanos where so far he has appeared for a couple of times in earlier Marvel movies, and is also set to be the main bad guy in Avengers: Infinity War which is due for a release in 2018.

However for those familiar with the licensing/rights nightmare that is Marvel and other movie studios like Sony and Fox, you know that despite all of these movies being about Marvel characters, they are not part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which means that it makes sense that Brolin can be cast as Cable and Thanos at the same time.

It is also why if you might recall, Chris Evans was previously cast as Johnny Storm before landing the role of Captain America. There’s still no word on when Deadpool 2 will be released, but it is expected for 2018.
