Cable Comic Book Character Optioned

February 9, 2016

Today, reports hit the web that Fox has greenlit a Deadpool sequel. What can tell you is that the X-Men character, Cable, will be joining him.

We don’t know how large a role Cable will play in the Deadpool sequel, but Colossus plays a fairly significant role in Deadpool, so we’re expecting it will be much more than just a cameo.

Created by Rob Liefeld, Cable is the son of Cyclops and Madelyne Pryor who made his first appearance in New Mutants #87. A grim, serious character, he’s been a frequent foil for Deadpool, especially in the time since Deadpool was established as genre savvy, the differences between the two make for some interesting chemistry and solid humor.

There is no word yet on who will play Cable in the film, but as soon as we know we’ll let you know.
