Deadpool 2 Director David Leitch Praises Josh Brolin As Cable

Deadpool 2 hasn't been filming very long but the highly anticipated sequel is already the talk of the town. The movie is due out next June and people are already desperate for information on Josh Brolin as Cable. It'll be some time before we get any footage of the character, they are only twelve days into filming, but director David Leitch sat down with IGN about Brolin.

"When he graciously agreed to do the role, Ryan and I were through the roof; we love him," said Leitch. "He's such a great actor, he brings a humanity to Cable, but he also has the depth of acting chops to hang with the comedy when needed. He's bringing that character to life in the short 12 days we've been shooting and I couldn't be happier."

That's good to hear. When Brolin came out on stage at D23 to say that he looked huge is a vast understatement to how big he actually looks in real life. If they manage to capture that on film he's going to embody the role of Cable with all of the 90's insanity that fans are looking forward to.

Deadpool 2, directed by David Leitch, stars Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Josh Brolin, Brianna Hildebrand, and Zazie Beetz. It will be released on June 1st, 2018.
