As Ryan Reynolds’ highly anticipated Deadpool & Wolverine prepares to hit the theatres, fans can expect the nostalgic return of Hugh Jackman as the clawed mutant. Apart from the main cast of the film, Marvel has also prepared tons of alleged cameos in the movie. But sadly, one actor who previously appeared in Deadpool 2, and was expected to be a part of the upcoming sequel, has confirmed his absence.

Well, it’s none other than the Avengers: Endgame actor Josh Brolin, who was expected to reprise his role as Cable in the third installment. But unfortunately, it seems Marvel has different plans for the actor. Despite being listed on the film’s IMDb page, and willing to appear in the movie, Brolin addressed why Marvel had no plans for his return.

Josh Brolin Won’t Return as Cable in Deadpool & Wolverine

Navigating from Marvel’s Deadpool 2 in 2018 to MCU’s Avengers: Endgame in 2019, Josh Brolin has created quite a resume surrounding Marvel projects. However despite his experience in playing anti-hero roles, this time, Marvel seems to have ditched the actor for Ryan Reynolds’ upcoming Deadpool & Wolverine (2024).

Previously, Josh Brolin appeared as Cable in Ryan Reynolds‘ second Deadpool installment, alongside Morena Baccarin’s Vanessa, Leslie Uggams’ Blind Al, and Karan Soni’s Dopinder. Unfortunately, while all those familiar faces from the prequels make their way into Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool & Wolverine, it’s only Brolin who gets left out.

Recently speaking with the Bingeworthy TV podcast via The Playlist, Josh Brolin addressed how he is listed on Deadpool & Wolverine’s IMDb page, and yet hasn’t been contacted by Marvel bosses. Claiming that he wanted to reprise his role, Brolin noted that Marvel Studios never really asked him to return alongside his other OG castmates.

Yeeeesssss! I so wanted to be in that movie… [Marvel] is a more complex labyrinth than ‘Outer Range’ will ever be, my friend. And I will never know where that went or what that is or what I’m involved with or what I’m not involved with — the MCU being involved now. Cable was a lot of fun. I really liked doing that role. That was a lot of fun.”

Hinting at the internal conflicts following Disney’s acquisition of Fox, Josh Brolin implied that with the MCU being involved anything can happen, because they are playing around with the Marvel multiverse.

Fans Want Kevin Feige to Cast Brolin in Ryan Reynolds’ Sequel

Following Josh Brolin’s interview, it’s unclear if Marvel Studios specifically wanted to steer clear of Cable or if there just wasn’t room for him in the story for Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool & Wolverine. Well, we will never know what actually happened and why the Avengers: Endgame actor was simply kicked out from the third installment.

However, fans of the actor and the Deadpool franchise aren’t the ones to sit tight over Marvel’s decision. Although a major portion of filming for Deadpool & Wolverine has been completed, netizens urged Kevin Feige to cast Josh Brolin as Cable in the upcoming sequel. Since other characters from the previous Deadpool movies are returning, fans don’t see why Brolin was particularly ditched.



Recalling his flawless performance as both Cable and Thanos under the Marvel banner, fans express their desire to see Josh Brolin reprise his Deadpool role once again.
