We’re not saying Pierce Brosnan is Cable in Deadpool 2 but is Pierce Brosnan Cable in Deadpool 2?

January 18th, 2017 by Marc Comments


One of the biggest questions on comic book/movie fans’ lips right now is who the heck is playing Cable in Deadpool 2?

And now, those pranksters Hugh Jackman, Wolverine himself, and Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds have posted images on their social pages of themselves with none other than ex-James Bond, Pierce Brosnan.

And this has set the internet on fire… is Brosnan playing Cable?

Now, obviously, no-one is saying anything but what the heck, we’re playing devil’s advocate. We reckon the actors at the very least are having fun with this and knew exactly what they were doing.

Cable is not a young man in the comics and the two actors who we’ve heard linked to the role most are Liam Neeson and Stephen Lang who are 63 and 64 respectively and Brosnan too is 63, so we reckon he’s definitely not an unlikely option.

Anyway, here’s Jackman’s tease – have a look and let us know what you think, guys.

Brosnan for Cable? Works for us…

Wolvie. Bond. Wade.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
