Crowe seems totally open to playing Cable. And ever since Liefeld tweeted at him—fans have jumped on the bandwagon. Who could blame them? Crowe is an acclaimed actor, and there's nothing like a really good, award-winning actor portraying a beloved superhero who he/she closely resembles in a highly-anticipated film. Crowe would crush this part.

Just check out Crowe as Cable in this masterful artwork by artist BossLogic below.

Don't tease us like this, Crowe.😉 (Okay, please do.) If for some reason you can't picture Crowe as Cable then....

A) You've been living under a rock, and you clearly don't know Crowe. B) You haven't seen the awesome fan art of Crowe as Cable. That'll sell you.

Lang said he would play the hell out of Cable, but it might not happen due to scheduling conflicts.

According to Slash Film, Lang said:

I think it’s highly unlikely that they would ever give me the part, for a number of reasons, one of which being that it’s the same studio as Avatar. It’s a conceivable it would be a scheduling conflict, but you know, what I’ve said is that if they did give me the part, they’d be very satisfied – because I’ll play the hell out of the part. But if they don’t give me the part, then I can be magnanimous in defeat, compliment the actor who does get the part, and console myself with four sequels to Avatar.

Since Crowe teased playing Cable, Lang has tweeted fan art of him as the character. He and fans still want to see this happen.
