Stephen Lang is Definitely Still Down to Play Cable in Deadpool 2

Earlier this year “Avatar” actor Stephen Lang became the subject of intense online speculation after fans began to lobby for him to play the time-traveling, technopathic mutant Cable in the sequel to Fox massively successful “Deadpool.” Lang himself seemed pretty amused, hopping aboard the social-media bandwagon in support of the casting choice. Time has passed, and a handful of other names have made their way through the rumor mill, but Lang still wants it to be known that he’s still very much “ready to lay some Cable.” His words, not ours.

“I’d be delighted to be a part of that sequel, but I haven’t spoken to anyone about it,” Lang told Mashable. “… Even now, if someone does fan art, I’ll retweet it because I like keeping it alive.”

Marvel Comics’ Cable

 

The co-star of the breakout horror hit “Don’t Breathe” admitted that, while he thinks he’d “do a pretty bang-up job with the part,” he’s unsure whether his commitment to James Cameron’s upcoming “Avatar” sequels would prevent him from getting down to business with Deadpool.

“[U]nderstand that my obligation is to the largest, most successful film ever made,” he said, “so ‘Avatar’ takes precedence.”

It’s hard to argue with the numbers, especially when said numbers added up to $2.78 billion worldwide.

Created by Chris Claremont, Louise Simonson and Rob Liefeld, Cable made his Marvel Comics debut in 1986, and quickly became a fan favorite with his no-nonsense approach, powerful abilities, and penchant for destruction. In the past, he’s managed to win fights against Wolverine, Falcon, Captain America, Red Hulk and Iron Man. However, there’s no word on how he’d fare against Ryan Reynolds’ Merc With a Mouth … yet.
