Ryan Reynolds Talks Cable And Deadpool

Ryan Reynolds discusses the possibilities of future Deadpool movies.

This week "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" opens.  We will get the long awaited appearance of Deadpool on the big screen.  Or perhaps we'll see him more as Wade Wilson rather than as Deadpool.  In the movie we will see him with Wolverine, Gambit, Sabretooth and the others.  With Deadpool's popularity these days, there's no way they can just let the character walk off into the sunset.  I have yet to see Reynolds fully in this role.  I don think he will be great as "Deadpool."

In a recent talk with MTV, Reynolds talked about future possibilities for the Merc with a Mouth.  He mentioned such characters as Black Tom and Cable as possible characters Deadpool could face off against.
The ‘Deadpool/Cable’ stuff is great.  I’ve never really cast that character in my head. He’s such a complicated character.

I wish they would do a ‘Cable’ movie first, just to explain the guy.  And then they could do a ‘Deadpool vs. Cable’ kind of thing.

It's good to hear that he has a handle on Deadpool and his relationship with Cable.  MTV went on the mention that the possibility of a Cable movie isn't too far off after Marvel announced they were looking for writers for movies.

Do you think a Cable & Deadpool movie could work?  Can you think of who would be perfect to play Cable?

"He's Cyclops and Jean's son, sent to the future to cure him of the technovirus Apocalypse (or was it Strife?) put in him.  The problem is that Cyclops and Jean are both dead and Apocalypse doesn't exist in marvel movie continuity. "

You don't need to bring all that stuff into a Cable movie. He's a time-traveling freedom fighter come to prevent a mad despot from conquering the world. Problem solved.

I think its a great idea. Not only will it be action pack but it will also be fun. XD Though they should redo deadpool first (movie version not comic version)

If they make a Deadpool spin off, an easy way to get rid of the other powers is to say that the healing factor eventually got rid of them all.

They shouldn't make a Cable and Deadpool movie, Cable should just have a small part and not delve to much into his story

Deadpool and Cable would be great, at the same time a X-Force would be great as well..

ryan reynolds sucked  hard with both deadpool and hannibal king.dont let him near anymore characters.
i think russel crowe would be good for cable.

and ray stevenson was a crap punisher. tom janes the only good one.

i definately hope they somehow include cable in the deadpool movie somehow.. if not a major role then at least a decent side character

I think they should keep ryan reynolds and cast garey busey as cable. After all, he has that crazy look in his eye, right?

@kev17:  you don't know anything about deadpool do ya? there is no one more perfect for deadpool than ryan reynolds. he even ad libbed all his wade wilson lines in wolverine.
 
the only other person who could even come close to playing deadpool right is a 80s early 90s bruce campbell.
 
as for cable? michael biehn or kurt russell

Deadpool movie first, then Cable

@the ace of knaves:
Deadpool: semi sane sense of humor that's manisfested by shooting somebody in an amusing way, a little resentful of his past  (hates wen people bring it up) and breaks the fourth wall and the rules of superhero comics sometimes.  Personnaly i enjoy when Daniel Way writes him, and i think he's at his best when he's teasing Wolverine. You obviously didnt know i read my share of deadpool comics. Dont make assumptions of strangers based on a films casting.  I said Ryan Reynolds sucked as deadpool BECAUSE i read the comics.  To elaborate, you need someone who can truely capture the eccentric, insane quality of deadpool, rather the the obvious, dry wit of Ryan Reynolds.

 Siryn, Ajax/Doctor Killbrew/The Hospice aka DEADPOOL, Weasal, Slayback, Kane, Copycat.  With a hint OR appearance by Cable & LL&L or Bullseye.  Should follow the DEADPOOL AND DEATH 98 origin story of Deadpool.  and if anything have him mix it up with the hand, aim, be on missions of kidnapping, assasinations etc. and if anything implement the TOLLIVERS WILL storyline.
