So, after months and months, and about every slightly older actor in Hollywood being considered for the role- the one actor not considered has been cast: Josh Brolin! Thanos himself has been tapped for the role of the time-traveling Son-Dad Mutant resistance leader, Cable.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brolin has signed a 4-year picture deal for the role, which will include Deadpool 2, and most likely a few X-Force films, as well. He’ll of course stay in his role as Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, for Avengers: Infinity War, and most likely Avengers 4, as well.
This casting is so beyond perfect, I’m not sure why no one really considered it? Grumpy Josh Brolin is the perfect dude to play the grumpiest of all the X-Men allies.
