Cable Basically Confirmed For Deadpool 2, If It Happens

The debut trailer for ‘Deadpool’ has left fans salivating as it appears to be the genuinely R-rated, ultra-violent, and very, very funny comic-book adaptation that the genre has been calling out for.

Ryan Reynolds has reprised his role as the beloved antihero for the unique blockbuster, but he’s clearly going to be a much different beast to the same character he portrayed in ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’.

And while die-hard fans are eagerly waiting for ‘Deadpool’s’ February release date to finally roll around, there’s a worry that it will put off more mainstream moviegoers.

Director Tim Miller doesn’t appear to share these concerns though, as the ‘Deadpool’ director has already started talking about his plans for a sequel. In fact he already knows which villain would be perfect.

And I’m pretty sure most ‘Deadpool’ die-hards would instantly agree.

Speaking to Empire Magazine, Miller admitted, “There aren’t really many definitive Deadpool villains, apart from Cable.”

After mentioning the robotically armed, time-traveling, cyborg, Miller teased that there has already been discussions about including Cable in a potential follow-up. Before then explaining that if he didn’t he’d probably be harangued and harassed to the point of tears by fans.

“If we don’t put Cable in ‘Deadpool 2′ I think we’ll be run out of town on a rail,” Miller poetically explained.

The son of Scott Summers and Madelyn Pryor (who herself is a clone of Jean Grey), Cable was sent to the future as a child only to return as an adult. He has then used his knowledge to try and mould the world into a better place.

Along the way, he comes into contract with Wade Wilson/Deadpool, and the pair developed a ridiculously entertaining patter throughout the ‘Cable & Deadpool’ comic book series that should lend itself to cinema perfectly. 

Fingers crossed ‘Deadpool’ makes enough money went it’s released on February 12, and we can then learn if that’s true.
