Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) reacts to Colossus’ (voiced by Stefan Kapicic) threats.

Pierce Brosnan May Be Cable After All?

The rumors of Pierce Brosnan being cast as Cable may ring true.

On the latest episode of Meet the Movie Press, Forbes’s Simon Thompson said he chatted with director David Leitch at the world premiere of John Wick: Chapter 2, and after he congratulated Leitch on landing the Deadpool 2 directorial gig, he tried to trick Leitch into confirming the casting rumor. “So I said, ‘Congratulations on casting Pierce Brosnan,'” Thompson explained, “and he went, ‘We have not yet.'”

Mashable’s Jeff Sneider quickly chimed in, “[Variety’s] Justin [Kroll] can’t say anything, but, yeah, I’ve heard it’s going to him.”

If Brosnan does indeed land the role, given the track record with the first film its annoucment will be via  its star and producer, Ryan Reynolds social media accounts. So keep a close eye on his Twitter account.

 Rumors of Brosnan’s involvement in the production of Deadpool 2 were sparked last month when Reynolds and Hugh Jackman posted photos of  the three of them posed together on a sofa to their social media accounts (seen below). That’s all it took for the internet to catch fire.
