"More Obscure Characters" Coming in 'Deadpool 2', Say Writers

Is Russell Crowe campaigning to play Cable in 'Deadpool 2'

Stars Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin still emerging into superstars, as were writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick pre-Deadpool but since the four talents have become superstars (one now an Oscar winner). However, fans are still eagerly waiting to see who will play the time traveling X-Force leader known as Cable, and it sounds like we'll find out soon.

"An announcement will be coming very soon". It sounds like there's some meat to the character too, because they also want whoever plays Cable to be "physically imposing and able to emote".

The writing duo also touched upon the importance of the Cable casting beyond Deadpool 2, identifying him as someone who will need to "command" the #XForce movie, an ensemble flick Wernick believes fans will "go insane for" once the film is officially announced. Thankfully, the duo have a good track record (Deadpool, Zombieland) and with The Martian's Drew Goddard also helping out on writing duties it looks like the team are doing everything they can to avoid sequelitis.

It's an important decision, but the names in the running are brimming with talent and capable of carrying the X-Force franchise. "I think once it's announced, as we get closer, people are gonna go insane for it". There has been speculation since Cable's involvement was first announced over a year ago in the #Deadpool post-credits scene, but the wait is nearly over. So far the big new draw for Deadpool 2 has been the much-touted addition of X-Force's Cable. "Of course, it will be all about the lunacy that is Deadpool himself", they told Latino-Review.

What to expect for Deadpool 2?

A few actors have been floated as contenders for Cable, a formidable mutant who shares a significant history with Deadpool in the comics.
