The wait is finally over!
Actor Josh Brolin, who plays the Mad Titan Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has nabbed the hotly contested role of time traveling mutant Cable in Fox's Deadpool 2.
The David Leitch spinoff has been searching for the right actor to fill the role for months now, with several contenders considered by the studio including Man Of Steel villain Michael Shannon and Stranger Things star David Harbour.
Sources say Brolin's deal is for four movies.
Ryan Reynolds is returning to the role of the wisecracking Deadpool, while Atlanta breakout Zazie Beetz is playing the mutant mercenary known as Domino.
Fox is aiming to get production on the sequel underway this June in Vancouver, Canada.
In the comics, Cable is from the future. He is a leader and used to being obeyed and very controlled, but with an aura of simmering violence. He also happens to be the son of Scott Summers, also known as the X-Man Cyclops.
The character was co-created by Deadpool co-creator Rob Liefeld and writer Louise Simonson.
