The Latest On DEADPOOL 2; How Will Cable Be Implemented In The Sequel?

The Latest On DEADPOOL 2; How Will Cable Be Implemented In The Sequel?

With filming set to begin this summer, the Deadpool 2 team led by Ryan Reynolds and director David Leitch (John Wick) are putting the finishing pieces to the pre-production process. Casting has already begun and the search for CABLE and DOMINO is the top priority.

Right now plot details are non-existent but we can probably expect to see a cool villain from the X-Men universe as the baddie. Personally, I’d love to see Mister Sinister pop up. He’s not only heavily involved with the X-Men story lines but he’s also a major part of Gambit’s past, who Channing Tatum will get to play in his own solo film very soon. I wouldn’t mind a Gambit cameo in Deadpool 2…hmmm…

Anyways, here’s what we can 100% confirm for the Deadpool sequel:

  1. Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand) and Colossus (voiced by Stefan Kapicic) will be back.
  2. Deadpool’s  favorite cab driver Dopinder (Karan Soni) will be back
  3. Vanessa, played by Morena Baccarin, will be back. Will she be back as just Vanessa or will we learn her “real” identity? The theory of her being the character COPYCAT, the shape shifting mutant, is pretty strong.

Expect to find out who will be playing Cable very soon but Deadpool 2 writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are writing as much as they can without knowing who will play the part:

PAUL WERNICK: It’s intimidating because we have to find his voice, and we don’t have an actor yet so we don’t know who we’re writing for. Most screenwriting happens without cast in place, but sequels it’s a little bit different and it’s likely that part will get cast, and we’ll get to continue writing it and honing it for that actor, which I think is a good thing. There’s been so many diverse people that have been brought up as possibilities for Cable, and who have not been brought up but we’re considering. And that, much like with Ryan [Reynolds], that decision will greatly impact his cadences, his rhythms. And we’ll certainly make him like he is in the comics, and we’ll certainly be faithful, but I do think that voice will inform us quite a bit.

RHETT REESE: I think authenticity is so important. I think part of what made Deadpool such a success, I think we’re going to continue that authenticity.

WERNICK: So with Cable, he’s got such a convoluted past, and such a convoluted origin story that I think we’re going to try to leave that, not mysterious, but there are a lot of twists and turns, cloning and all this stuff where you go, “Oh my God. How do we get that across in a two hour movie?” I think we’re going to distill him down to his essence. It will be authentic and faithful, but it’s not going to include the 18,000 details if you were going to read a Wikipedia page about Cable you’d roll your eyes.
