He'll now work alongside actor Ryan Reynolds, who reprises his role of the titular character in "Deadpool 2".

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Deadpool's "X-Force" collaborator Cable will be played by none other than Josh Brolin. There were a few contenders with Stranger Things' David Harbour in the list and the role nearly being nabbed by Michael Shannon. After all, doesn't Brolin already play Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

But Brolin also plays Thanos, the main antagonist in the upcoming "Avengers: Infinity War" movies.

David Leitch is directing the sequel, which is expected to hit cinemas sometime in 2018.

Michael Shannon was apparently the front runner for the role, but Marvel and Fox opted to go this route instead.

As Limp Bizkit might say in a time like this, "Deadpool" 2 will "keep Brolin, Brolin, Brolin, Brolin". In the series, the character is transported to the future as a child before returning to the present-day as a warrior. Brolin joins previously announced Atlanta star Zazie Beetz, who was cast as Domino in March.

"Deadpool" had a hugely successful box office, earning over $782 million worldwide, and became the highest-grossing R-rated film in history.
