Was Stephen Lang snubbed for the role of Cable in 'Deadpool 2'? | The Tylt
Josh Brolin was just cast as Cable in "Deadpool 2." Fans are pleasantly surprised the acclaimed actor will portray the badass, time traveling X-Men character in the sequel to "Deadpool" and the forthcoming "X-Force" franchise. But some critics are pissed that Brolin is playing two Marvel characters—Fox's Cable and MCU's Thanos. Others say fan-favorite choice Stephen Lang deserves the role of Cable. Lang campaigned hard for it, but then said his schedule is tight. Fans still argue Lang was snubbed. What do you think?

I don't know why Josh Brolin thinks he can be Thanos AND Cable but I guess rules don't apply to these Hollywood types.— Linda Ge (@lindazge) April 12, 2017

I’m kind of embarrassed I hadn’t thought of Brolin as a contender for Cable. He’s a great choice all around.— Paul Shirey (@arcticninjapaul) April 12, 2017
