If you saw Deadpool this weekend, then you’ll know that Cable will appear in the upcoming sequel.
Hopefully, you stayed seated until the film’s post-credits scene, which officially announced that Deadpool’s Marvel comic book adversary is coming along for the ride in Deadpool 2. But who exactly is Cable, you may ask? Cable is the gun-toting son of Cyclops and Madelyn Pryor, Jean Grey’s clone. When he was only a baby, he was sent into the future. He is a time-travelling mutant with telepathic and telekinetic abilities and, because he was infected by Apocalypse with a techno-organic virus, he has a cybernetic eye and arm. He is 6 feet, 8 inches tall, 350 pounds, and has blue eyes and white hair. Cable and Deadpool first crossed paths in New Mutants #98, when the Merc With a Mouth was hired to kill him.
So which actors are worthy enough to play him? It’s a touch choice between…
Jeffrey Dean Morgan
And maybe… Keira Knightley?
Any other suggestions for Cable?
Deadpool arrives on Digital HD on Tuesday 26th April, with the Blu-ray / DVD release hitting the streets on May 10th.
