Wait, So Josh Brolin Is Going to Play ... TWO Marvel Superheroes?

Wait, So Josh Brolin Is Going to Play ... TWO Marvel Superheroes?

But the studio ultimately settled on something of a surprise contender in Brolin, who has starred as the villainous Thanos in previous Marvel flicks.

Josh Brolin will star as the stoic warrior from the future in the upcoming "Deadpool" sequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter. There were a few contenders with Stranger Things' David Harbour in the list and the role nearly being nabbed by Michael Shannon.

In all seriousness, Brolin being both Cable and Thanos is no big deal, especially as the latter is a motion capture character quite literally worlds apart in every way to the son of Cyclops and Jean Grey. Deadpool 2, the sequel to the ubiquitous 2016 hit starring Ryan Reynolds, is aiming to begin production in Vancouver this June in anticipation of a projected 2018 release.

Michael Shannon was apparently the front runner for the role, but Marvel and Fox opted to go this route instead.
