Kyle Chandler wanted for Deadpool 2

One of my favourite actors working today could be set for a role in Deadpool 2.

Friday Night Lights star Kyle Chandler is reportedly under consideration for the role of Cable, according to Comic

The character was teased in a post-credits scene at the end of the first film so it looks like the filmakers will be following this up with a main role in the sequel for the powerful mutant with a messiah complex.

Comic is reporting that Mashable’s Jeff Sneider told Meet the Movie Press: “There’s been a name floating around for Cable for months. Hasn’t changed. Don’t know if it’s changed. Didn’t make any calls about this.

“This was just the name that has been out there for months. So take this with a gigantic grain of salt. The biggest grain of salt your tiny little brain can imagine. The name that is floating around for Cable right now is Kyle Chandler.”

Meanwhile, according to the same site the role of Domino, a skilled soldier and expert markswoman, looks set to be played by Mackenzie Davis.

Sneider said: “The name for Domino, who is said to be the scene-stealer of the movie, is Mackenzie Davis.”

Davis was recently seen in The Martian and will appear in the forthcoming Blade Runner sequel.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
