If Josh Brolin has his way, he will be the next actor to play two roles in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Although he just finished an amazing career as Thanos in “Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame,” legendary comic book creator Rob Liefeld says the actor is aboard the Cable train.
Now that Disney and Marvel Studios once again own character rights under the X-Men umbrella, characters like Cable and Deadpool are technically part of the MCU.
“.. Josh wants to be Cable again sooner rather than later,” Liefeld tells ComicBook.com. “He wants to be Cable again. He loved being Cable. He said he understands how beloved his role as Thanos is, but he doesn’t completely resemble Josh Brolin. ”
“These are Josh Brollin’s own words that tell me; “Rob when I appeared as Cable in Deadpool 2, my phones rang.” It changed everything for him and obviously Josh will receive some award for his professional career at some point. He’s the type of our best actors. ”
We hope to see Josh Brolin in an upcoming Deadpool installment as Cable the Time Traveler again.
