DEADPOOL & WOLVERINE: Josh Brolin Confirms AND Denies He'll Return As Cable In Upcoming MCU Threequel DEADPOOL & WOLVERINE: Josh Brolin Confirms AND Denies He'll Return As Cable In Upcoming MCU Threequel

Deadpool 2 star Josh Brolin has once again been asked about possibly returning as Cable in Deadpool & Wolverine, and seemingly caught off guard, the actor says both "yes" and "no." Read on for details...

Josh Brolin played Cable in Deadpool 2 and, thanks to the mutant's time-travel device, Wade Wilson was able to travel through time and cause chaos. We have a feeling that might be what puts him on the Time Variance Authority's radar, but what's become of Nathan Summers? 

The actor, who played Thanos in the MCU, is currently doing the rounds to promote Dune: Part 2. The hosts of Good Morning America (which airs on the Disney-owned ABC) asked Brolin if he's going to return as Cable in Deadpool & Wolverine

"Um, sure. I don't know," he said when asked if he'll appear in the movie. "No, no, I"ll check with my bookkeeper. I don't know if that's [Laughs] I can't say anything. Yes. No. Maybe. Maybe. I'm in every movie coming out in the next year...I think it's going to be a good movie, though."

That's a surprisingly coy answer, don't you think?

In other news, a new U.S. Copyright filing for Deadpool & Wolverine has been submitted which appears to confirm Emma Corrin is indeed playing the villainous Cassandra Nova. We've been hearing rumblings about that for a while, of course, and her bald head was even glimpsed in the movie's first trailer.

A brief synopsis included in the filing reads, "In Marvel Studios' Deadpool & Wolverine, Wade Wilson is confronted by the TVA, which pulls him from a seemingly quiet life and results in Deadpool being unleashed."

Check out Brolin's comments in full below. 

Shawn Levy directs Deadpool & Wolverine, which stars Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman, Emma Corrin, Morena Baccarin, Rob Delaney, Leslie Uggams, Karan Soni, and Matthew Macfadyen. The movie is written by Ryan Reynolds & Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick & Zeb Wells & Shawn Levy.

The trades have confirmed that Jennifer Garner will reprise her role as Elektra, with Wesley Snipes, James Marsden, Famke Janssen, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Dafne Keen, Channing Tatum, Blake Lively and, as we mentioned above, even singer Taylor Swift among those rumoured to make an appearance. 

Kevin Feige, Ryan Reynolds, Shawn Levy and Lauren Shuler Donner produce with Louis D’Esposito, Wendy Jacobson, Mary McLaglen, Josh McLaglen, Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, George Dewey, Simon Kinberg and Jonathon Komack Martin serving as executive producers.

Marvel Studios' Deadpool & Wolverine arrives in theaters on July 26, and will be available in IMAX, RealD 3D, Dolby Cinema, 4DX, Cinemark XD and premium screens everywhere.

Like they would put Garner in as Elektra and not bring cable back..... the kitchen sink will get screen time

@ProfessorWhy - yeah, his character had such great chemistry with DP it'd be a shame not to get just a little bit more.

Disney marketing relying on rumors now to build hype for dp3.

Who wants to bet TS will be there in the premiere whether she is in the movie or not?

Marvel desperate.
ShimmyShimmyYA - 2/29/2024, 7:54 AM
@vectorsigma - to be fair she’s best friends with Ryan Reynolds wife
Blergh - 2/29/2024, 8:53 AM
@vectorsigma - everyone will be in DP3! Hell I can confirm that McGee himself will be in this!
bkmeijer1 - 2/29/2024, 9:28 AM
@vectorsigma - I doubt rumours are doing much for the general audience. They probably don't even know the Fox, Sony and Marvel Studios movies are seperate universes
lazlodaytona - 2/29/2024, 10:40 AM
@Blergh - heck, even this duo will I've heard:

No point having him on it just for the sake of it. Cable shouldn't be just a background character. Though it is a character that the TVA should be hunting down.
HammerLegFoot - 2/29/2024, 6:06 AM
@Urubrodi - Well since I have seen the script. I can tell you that Deadpool and Wolverine bump into Cable in the void and he's living a happy life with his wife and daughter who were also pruned. And its a quick back and forth banter, and they go there separate ways. Trust me bro

Definitely seems like he’s in it with that response but we’ll see…

His Cable was alright imo (kinda one note but made sense given his mission) and Brolin did well with the material he had so I wouldn’t mind seeing him again in the role even if it’s just a cameo.

I doubt he will carry over in the MCU but you never know.

The marketing of this film feels like pure desperation.

Lets intentionally leak high quality images of Wolverine, Deadpool, Sabertooth, Pyro, Toad and images of them doing Mad Max style action scenes in the Fantasticar, Red Skull's Vehicle, Ice Cream van from Moon Knight, etc... and then lets have a trailer focusing on the TVA that nobody gives a single [frick] about. Doesn't matter that this is the final battle of the movie and that we've already burned through all the nostalgia already.

We have Deadpool looking at a TV showing a bunch of deceased or absent MCU characters. Iron Man who is dead. Thor who was turned into a parody. Hulk who is inferior to She-Hulk. Captain America who is old/dead. Black Widow who is dead. Hawkeye who has been surpassed by Kate Bishop and Echo. There's no appeal to Deadpool interacting with the MCU when all the characters he would play well against are dead. Deadpool isn't even special anymore, She-Hulk has already surpassed everything he's ever done in terms of fourth wall breaking by altering the entire fabric of reality and talking with the creator of the entire MCU.

According to Ryan Reynolds this is his last outing, yet Disney are trying to pretend he'll actually be in Avengers 5/6 even though they've not yet convinced him to do so and he clearly wants to step away after this one - given him taking pot shots at how bad the marketing for Deadpool 3 is.

Also now that Emma Corrin has been confirmed as Cassandra Nova , I hope (and likely think) we’ll get a comedic recreation of this scene from the comics…

Jackraow21 - 2/29/2024, 8:38 AM
I hope he’s in it, even if just a cameo. Loved him in DP2 as Cable.
bkmeijer1 - 2/29/2024, 9:26 AM
No to Cable, yes to Stryfe?

Or maybe just as himself in a scene with the actir Hugh Jackman. Think that'd be funny.
Jackraow21 - 2/29/2024, 9:44 AM
@bkmeijer1 - Him as Stryfe could be fun.
Humperdoo - 2/29/2024, 10:16 AM
He was the best part in DP2. Rest of the movie kind of sucked. Thing is with DP3 it’s going to be doing the same oddball couple thing that was already done in DP2. Instead of Cable and DP it’ll be Wolverine and DP. Serious guy with funny guy…..
Elle79 - 2/29/2024, 1:28 PM
@Humperdoo - To each their own. I though DP2 was hilarious and pretty great.
Jackraow21 - 2/29/2024, 3:52 PM
@Elle79 - Same. And I also loved Brolin as Cable and want to see more of the character.
BruceWayng - 2/29/2024, 10:53 AM
Can’t wait to see a 5’9 Cable standing next to a 6’2 Wolverine…
Humperdoo - 2/29/2024, 10:54 AM
@BruceWayng - Lol.
QuietStorm - 2/29/2024, 11:44 AM
I kinda hope Russell comes back too
Biggums - 3/6/2024, 5:46 AM
@QuietStorm - tubby kid was so annoying.
ThorArms - 2/29/2024, 2:20 PM
Yea highly doubt he is in it.
cadunovaes01 - 3/4/2024, 11:17 AM
Brolin as Cable was THE highlight in DP2. If we start to see in TVA optic, he is the man to be hunted across time
