Everyone’s favorite Merc with a Mouth might have found his Cable for Deadpool 2. The rumor mill is adrift with who will play the role of Cable opposite Ryan Reynolds. The leading candidate of the moment is someone familiar with superhero movies since he played General Zod in a DC project. Michael Shannon is said to be at the top of studio execs wish lists. Scheduling could prevent Shannon from taking the project though. Deadpool 2 begins shooting this summer in Vancouver and Shannon has already signed on to shoot the indie What They Had this spring. If he is not able to take the role, Stranger Things David Harbour is also on the shortlist for the role. For Deadpool 2, Cable, the son of Madelyne Pryor and Scott Summers, is described as the opposite of Deadpool. Cable is a leader used to being obeyed. An aura of violence simmers barely controlled beneath his surface. Whoever is cast they will join Reynolds and the already cast super powered merc Domino, played by TV’s Atlanta’s Zazie Beetz. David Leitch will direct the sequel to the surprise Fox blockbuster.
