Deadpool's Tim Miller on why he wants Cable in the upcoming sequel

04.27.2016

Deadpool sequel Cable

Now that a sequel to DEADPOOL is officially on the books with Tim Miller returning to direct and Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick once again crafting the script, there's been a lot of talk of the one new element we know will be turning up in the sequel: Cable. While speaking with IGN to promote DEADPOOL's forthcoming home-media release, Tim Miller dicussed just why he wants Cable featured in the DEADPOOL sequel.

There’s a lot about Cable’s history that I like because he’s so intertwined with the world of the X-Men. Why he was put together with Deadpool – other than that he was in a comic that wasn’t selling well and Deadpool was in a comic that wasn’t selling well so they put them together – it’s the same reason we had Colossus; he’s a straight man. And I think Deadpool needs a straight man. Cable is the ultimate, archetypal, silent, strong and cynical warrior, which Deadpool is not.

DEADPOOL screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick agreed with Miller's comments and described the traits they've looking for in the actor who winds up with the role, "strength, gravitas, a purposefulness that Deadpool doesn’t have. Deadpool’s kind of got ADD, and we think of Cable as someone who locks onto something and is going to get that thing solved no matter what." There are plenty of great candidates for the role, with Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) himself suggesting Mel Gibson, Dolph Lundgren, or Keira Knightley. AVATAR's Stephen Lang has also thrown his hat into the ring by saying that he'd be down for the role. We still have a bit of a wait ahead until we find out who will fill Cable's shoes, but the wait is almost over for DEADPOOL's home-media release, as the Blu-ray/DVD will hit stores on May 10, 2016.

I'm still hoping they offer Henry Rollins the role.

That's actually a great idea. I just watched him on Netflix in a movie called He Never Died. Great movie. I think hw would have awesome chemistry with Ryan. Good call.

I love Nathan Fillion, BUT:
A) He's the wrong choice to play the straight man to Deadpools comedy
B) He would have to do some serious working out to get in shape. Chilling on Castle has got him well out of shape.
C) He is being cast in the Marcel Universe it seems, so it may be a conflict with Fox's universe.

If only Bryan Singer understood the characters that he's working with this well and saw them as personas and not just power sets.

Give it to someone who deserves it.

I'd like to see the role given to a washed up movie star who's looking for a comeback. As mentioned; Gibson, Lundgren, Arnold, Lang, or someone who hasn't had a decent role in a while....heck even Ron Perlman. My fear is that they may go for someone younger.

Arnold acting like Clint Eastwood would be hilarious. Clancy Brown anyone?

Easy one. Arnold.

Give me Arnold going back to the version of the Terminator from T2. Stoic, tough, "Knives, and stabbing weapons." No bullshit, just the best version or Arnie there ever was, paired with Deadpool.

Colossus was a big highlight from the film because his no nonsense attitude played off perfectly with Deadpool's crazy, volatile, explicit humor and actions. It'll be the same theme again with the sequel with Cable, but only so much more this time around considering Cable's comic book history.

And to play Cable, I would love to see Timothy Olyphant. His no nonsense attitude from Deadwood, and Justified would be key to playing Cable, he's the right age for a more, older war fought Cable, and
