Cable is a name that has skyrocketed in the past year or so, after being mentioned in the sequel for 2016’s blockbuster ‘Deadpool’. To audiences who aren’t aware of this time traveling mutant’s identity, he is the son of Scott Summers (Cyclops) and Jean Grey’s clone (Madelyne Pryor). Nathan Summers a.k.a Cable was created in 1986, but it wasn’t until 1990 that we got to see the real Cable. He was intended to be Professor X’s successor, to lead the New Mutants and as a man of action who was the opposite of Charles Xavier.
Though Cable has usually teamed up with the X-Men as they fight for the same cause, the rights of mutants, his stance in ‘Deadpool 2’ might be antagonistic. He shares Colossus’s views on importance of morals, being a trained warrior and hopes of a better world for his kind, but is exactly the opposite in executing that and will destroy anything that comes in his way. Cable will not let Deadpool’s antics get in his way and may try to wipe away the beloved antihero. But, these are just assumptions and we can only be certain once the movie releases. Till then, let’s look at the 5 Actors Who Could Play Cable:
5. Pierce Brosnan
The hype around Brosnan to play Cable started when the veteran Bond actor shared a photo with Wolverine and Deadpool, and people were already dreaming of the three badass mutants sharing the same screen. Brosnan has always been an action star, and though he may not possess the physique to boast about his exploits, he surely has the experience and charisma. With a silver mane, the actor does give a natural rugged look to Cable, and isn’t at a stage where he cannot undergo physical transformations (take a look at J.K.Simmons as Gordon), which can always be enhanced by the very effective CGI that was visible in Deadpool.
