Ryan Reynolds Has Finally Found His Cable For Deadpool 2!

UPDATE 8:10 P.M. EST: Ryan has now confirmed the casting news with a ridiculous, NSFW tweet that (sort of) welcomes Brolin to the mix:


Ryan Reynolds has had fans in a fervor to see Cable on the big screen ever since his fourth wall-breaking stinger at the end of Deadpool announcing the fan favorite mutant would be in the sequel.

After names like Michael Shannon, David Harbour, and even Brad Pitt were thrown into the mix, the role has gone to Josh Brolin!

According to THR, the Hail Caesar star is signed on for a 4-picture deal, which will likely include an X-Force movie and possibly a solo spinoff.

Video: Is Ryan Reynolds Mean???

This will mark Brolin's third major comic book movie role playing megavillain Thanos for Marvel Studios and DC Comics cowboy Jonah Hex for Warner Bros. (The less said about that flick the better!)

Cable is Deadpool's longtime frenemy, a super-powered soldier from the future (who also happens to be the son of X-Men Cyclops and Jean Grey) who perpetually has to put up with Wade Wilson's nonsense while trying to save the world.

This seems like fantastic casting to us as Brolin was able to effortlessly steal the spotlight from Will Smith as super straight agent K in Men In Black III. Of course, he'll have to bring all that deadpan charm and more to combat RyRey's nonstop quips.

What do YOU think of the casting??

When Ellen DeGeneres brought up the talk of Chris Evans no longer playing Captain America, he did sadly confirm his contract is up after filming Avengers 4 later this year.

If you're a Marvel fan, you may have expected her to press hard on whether he would return — like she did with Robert Downey Jr. around Avengers: Age Of Ultron. (SPOILER: He did more Marvel movies!)

But Ellen didn't have to ask about the star's future plans — she already knew what they were!

Her production company A Very Good Production Inc. is doing Chris' next flick Jekyll, a big screen adaptation of the 2007 BBC miniseries that put the science fiction tale of Jekyll and Hyde into a modern setting.

See them talk about skydiving, scares, their movie, and the end of the superhero life (below)!

We were thrilled to hear Joss Whedon would be bringing Batgirl to the big screen in her own movie.

But we found ourselves wanting to know so much more!

Which Batgirl would this be — Barbara Gordon, Cassandra Cain, Stephanie Brown? Would she have fought alongside Ben Affleck for years, or is she new to the superhero game? Is this flick really standalone, or will she tie in with that Margot Robbie Gotham City Sirens movie??

LGBT Superheroes Are Becoming WAY More Common In Comic Books! Meet Some Of The Coolest HERE!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayComic BooksStuff 4 KidzLGBT

no title

Just a few weeks ago, Marvel Comics premiered America, the company's first solo title led by a lesbian, a super strong Latina named America Chavez.

This is a huge deal, but it turns out comic books in general have become much more progressive lately — introducing many new LGBT characters who have quickly become fan faves AND ALSO revealing some unexplored sexualities of classic superheroes.

Of course, in the case of Wonder Woman it's BASICALLY just confirming what we all assumed; we mean, she lived on an island of nothing but women for hundreds of years! Those magic bracelets could only deflect that question so long! Ha!

If you're interested in exploring some of these gay heroes for yourself, we came up with a great list to get you started…
