For a long time, Kyle Chandler was considered the main contender for the role of the mutant Cable in the sequel to Deadpool . There were even rumors that director Tim Miller decided to leave the project after he had a conflict with Ryan Reynolds over casting. The Hollywood Reporter has found out that 20th Century Fox is considering other actors.|
According to journalists, at the moment the main contender for the role of Cable is Michael Shannon . So far, the actor has only received an offer from the studio, and negotiations have not yet begun. The second option considered by the leadership of the major is David Harbor (Mysterious Events).
It is reported that the only stumbling block in negotiations with Shannon may be the actor's work schedule. Michael recently signed up for the drama What They Had, slated to begin filming this spring, and Deadpool 2 will be filming in Vancouver this summer. Plus, whoever plays Cable is likely to sign a deal with Fox to appear in another blockbuster in the studio, X-Force.
Recall that after the departure of Miller , the sequel was directed by David Leitch ("John Wick"). Ryan Reynolds will return to the role of the chatty mercenary, and Zazie Bitz will play the role of the mutant Domino .
Shannon is no stranger to comic book adaptations - the actor played General Zod in Man of Steel, and three years earlier he appeared in the John Hex film. Among the future films with the participation of Michael are the dramas "War of the currents" and "Cavalry".
