Josh Brolin Still Expected To Return As Cable...But It Reportedly WON'T Be In DEADPOOL 3! Josh Brolin Still Expected To Return As Cable...But It Reportedly WON'T Be In DEADPOOL 3!

Thus far, there's been no indication that Josh Brolin will reprise his Deadpool 2 role as Cable in the upcoming threequel, but the actor is set to play the time-traveller another MCU project!

In Deadpool 2's closing moments, Wade Wilson manages to get his hands on Cable's time-travel device and proceeds to cause chaos by travelling through time. Clearly meant as little more than a series of gags, aside from Vanessa's resurrection, we're guessing the original Deadpool 3 wouldn't have revisited any of that. 

However, with the threequel now part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it looks like the Merc with the Mouth's actions are going to tie into the wider Multiverse Saga.

Rumour has it Deadpool's time-travel shenanigans will see him run afoul of the Time Variance Authority, but where does Josh Brolin's Cable fit into that? The actor hasn't shared the warmest sentiments about working on the 2018 sequel but would surely be open to working with Ryan Reynolds and Marvel Studios again. 

Well, according to one reliable insider, while Cable won't be in Deadpool 3, there are still plans for Brolin to reprise the role elsewhere in the MCU. 

Your guess is as good as ours in regards to when and where that might happen, though Avengers: The Kang Dynasty or Avengers: Secret Wars are arguably the safest bet right now. 

This isn't confirmed, though we've heard rumblings there's a good reason for Cable's absence in Deadpool 3. When the TVA takes aim at Deadpool, it will be revealed that the son of Scott Summers and Jean Grey has been returned to his own timeline, with Wade forced to answer for his actions by toying with time. 

It's clear Deadpool 3 will be a key chapter in the Multiverse Saga, so as exciting as those rumoured cameos are, the threequel will likely be more important to whatever comes next than we initially expected. 

Deadpool 3 is set to be released in theaters on May 3, 2024.

@ObserverIO - One of the best moments in this story.

@ObserverIO - that would be so brutal, yet so cool. Pretty ballsy if Marvel actually does that

Killuminatic - 7/11/2023, 10:58 AM
@Superheromoviefan - He’s been pretty integral to the Dp franchise.

He should come back as Thanks, since my phone now thinks I’m always trying to say Thanos

It's good that all this website does anymore is just reposts 2 twitter accounts
Cap1 - 7/11/2023, 8:02 AM
@nibs - hacks (josh) supporting hacks (twitter ‘scoopers’). It’s like the opposite of real recognise real
Ryguy88 - 7/11/2023, 8:04 AM
Brolin stated that he preferred playing Cable over Thanos...I'd consider that at least a "warm sentiment."
Winston19 - 7/11/2023, 8:49 AM
Ah yes, random guy on Twitter knows all the details
slickrickdesigns - 7/11/2023, 8:57 AM
But why wouldn’t Cable show up in Deadpool? He was stranded in DP’s timeline at the end of the second movie.
ImBatman4realz - 7/11/2023, 9:12 AM
Man, Josh is so goofy. Every time he says he has a reliable source I know he’s been reading Reddit and posts on social media LMFAO.

Also each time he uses the word “rumblings”, I’m reminded of farts. Very fitting for his little post-icles
Jackraow21 - 7/11/2023, 9:30 AM
I need Brolin’s Cable versus Kang. In my view they’d make great enemies. Both being time travelers and all. Plus Doom versus Thanos. Those are battles I definitely want to see in Kang Dynasty and/or Secret Wars.
marvel72 - 7/11/2023, 9:37 AM
Thanos needs to comeback,Kang is useless got defeated by Ants but he was the one claiming to have killed The Avengers.
