The Cable rumors are running rampant once again, but it's not Pierce Brosnan at the center of them this time.
Russell Crowe has expressed his interest in playing the Deadpool 2 character on Twitter, and he's gone back and forth with Deadpool creator - Robert Liefeld - discussing the matter. Liefeld has put his stamp of approval on the idea.
A couple of fans have taken to art to depict Crowe as the time-jumping mutant, but the latest piece of fan-art has gotten everybody talking.
Bosslogic, known for his incredible depictions of actors in superhero roles, brought Crowe's Cable to life this week, and people are absolutely loving it. The artist tweeted the picture of the character Tuesday morning.
For the full look at Crowe's Cable, head to the gallery below. The gallery also includes a ton of other BossLogic creations, including Emma Stone as Batgirl.
With Logan hitting theaters this weekend, Deadpool 2 will become the focus from 20th Century Fox. Despite the film reportedly being pushed back to June for production, some news will likely begin to trickle out as the studio gears up to shoot and releases official casting announcements. It's entirely possible a casting announcement could come in the form of a fourth-wall breaking post-credits scene after Logan, especially considering the studio added 3 minutes to its run time following press screenings.
Deadpool 2 has earned a 4.18 out of 5 Anticipation Ranking in the ComicBook.com movies database, currently giving it the seventh rank of over 30 announced comic book films.
Deadpool 2 would not be Crowe's first go with comic book films. The actor played Superman's father, Jor-El, in 2013's Man of Steel.
