The Internet went crazy a few weeks back when Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds shared an image of not just himself and Wolverine actor Hugh Jackman, but also of actor Pierce Brosnan.
It led many to believe that Brosnan could have been cast in the upcoming Deadpool sequel as Deadpool’s iconic partner, Cable. And it turns out the speculation may actually have some merit.
During today’s episode of Meet The Movie Press, an online vodcast, Forbes reporter Simon Thompson shared some important details from Deadpool 2 director David Leitch.
According to Thompson, he used an old journalist tactic to get Leitch to slip up and reveal any Deadpool 2 information possible. And it worked.
“So I said, ‘Congratulations on casting Pierce Brosnan, and he went, ‘We have not yet.'”
Emphasis on the “yet“.
Thompson’s co-hosts Justin Kroll of Variety and Jeff Sneider of The Tracking Board continued to confirm this information. Sneider was able to say that,
“Justin can’t say anything, but, yeah, I’ve heard it’s going to him.”
With the three in unison that Brosnan will be cast as Cable, it seems more likely than ever, if not something that should be taken with a grain of salt.
