Josh Brolin is set to take on the role of Cable the upcoming Deadpool sequel.
Casting speculation has been rife for months, with Michael Shannon recently dominating the rumours.
THR reported the casting, which includes a four-movie deal, so don’t expect him to only appear in the Merc with a Mouth’s future films.
Brolin is now appearing in two comic book universes, the second being the MCU as mega-villain Thanos. He is set to appear in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War.

SUPER BOWL SUNDAY!
With the globe’s single largest sporting event taking place tonight, millions of viewers will be tuning in to see who will take the crown between the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos.
However for film fanatics who may not be that keen on the game itself, some of the biggest blockbusters trailers will be showcased during the adverts in America (we’ll just have to go on YouTube).
This year’s line-up includes the likes of The Jungle Book and Captain America: Civil War, however one teaser which has been confirmed is the inclusion of the tribute to skier Michael Edwards, a.k.a Eddie the Eagle.
Starring Taron Egerton from Kingsman: The Secret Service, the film tells the story of how Britain’s first ever ski jumper to qualify for the Winter Olympics literally crashed into the limelight back in 1988.
Whilst the first full trailer was released back in December, this shortened clip contains the reactions of NFL stars such as Russell Wilson and Drew Brees who seem to rate it very highly.
Even though this may not be the biggest box office hit of 2016, I think the values of being the underdog are hugely relevant for this weekend’s match. This is most likely why Fox decided to use it as one of their two film commercial spots.
Eddie the Eagle is released in UK cinemas on 1st April, for the time being you can watch the Super Bowl trailer and the full version below.
