Josh Brolin wants to know what’s next for Cable.
The actor, 51, starred as the villain in 2018’s “Deadpool 2” (he also starred as bad guy Thanos in both Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame”). Now that Disney owns 20th Century Fox and the rights to “X-Men” and “Deadpool”, however, Brolin is worried about Cable’s fate.
In a recent appearance at Seattle’s ACE Comic-Con, Brolin says he’s been in contact with Disney-owned Marvel.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen,” he explained. “I’m actually, I’ve been calling them, like, ‘What’s the deal with Cable, man?’ Seriously, 100 percent serious.”
“They’re figuring it out. It’s a big world now, it just got much, much bigger. So who knows.”
Since Disney’s purchase of Fox, Cable and Deadpool (played by Ryan Reynolds) have officially been added to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Marvel president Kevin Feige has shown an interest in keeping the “Deadpool” franchise going but it’s still unclear what he has planned for the Merc with a Mouth.
