Josh Brolin Wants to Play Cable in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With the acquisition of Fox by Disney, the rights to Deadpool and affiliated characters now belong to the mouse, so Josh Brolin’s wish just might come true.
Brolin has the best of both worlds in this instance. Though his reign as Mad Titan Thanos may be over, his time with Marvel is not. Josh Brolin excellently played both Thanos in the MCU and the “villain” Cable in Deadpool 2, while the Deadpool franchise was owned by Fox. After the Disney-Fox Merger, Disney and Marvel Studios now own the rights to the future Deadpool films.
It seems Josh is willing to make the most of this situation and continue playing the mutant mercenary Cable, only this time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“Wait, Disney bought Fox?!” Brolin replied as a joke. “I don’t know what’s going to happen. I’m actually, I’ve been calling them, like, ‘What’s the deal with Cable, man?’ Seriously, 100 percent serious. They’re figuring it out. It’s a big world now, it just got much, much bigger. So who knows.”
Disney and Marvel Studios have stated that there are plans to continue making Deadpool films, and are even willing to keep the R-rated material included after the deal was struck between the two entertainment conglomerates. With Ryan Reynold’s Deadpool willing to team up with Domino and Cable at the end of Deadpool 2 for more action packed adventures, there is a chance that Marvel will also choose to bring DP’s new found teammates along with him should he make his way into the MCU.
As the two Marvel worlds collide, in what will be a cinematic spectacle you won’t want to miss, it would ease the transition to have a familiar face on the screen. I mean, the 4th wall breaking Thanos/Cable jokes Deadpool is bound to say practically write themselves at this point. Though there is no promise for the future of the X-Men, other than the potential for a reboot of the series by Marvel Studios, it may be some time before the studio confirms any plans to introduce the characters from Deadpool or X-Men into the MCU directly.
So we will just have to put on our crocs and assemble some IKEA furniture while we wait to hear more about the future of the “merc with a mouth” and his foe-turned-friend.
