ComicBook.com caught up with the voice of Deadpool's Colossus, Stefan Kapicic, and he couldn't be more pleased with the casting.
“Josh Brolin is the perfect cast for Cable,” Kapicic says. “His face, his attitude, his acting. That guy is such an amazing actor. I can totally see him and I think that Fox did a great choice in casting him as cable.”
Kapicic also mentioned that the love extends well beyond the film cast and crew.
“I was talking with Rob Liefeld and so he’s really happy because that’s the face that he created. It's so beautiful that we have Josh Brolin.
Bringing Cable to the big screen won't be easy, but having the perfect actor in the role will probably help.
In the Marvel Comics universe, Cable is a master tactician raised in a dystopian future who travels back in time to prevent the rise of Apocalypse. He has a long history with Deadpool and the two are frequently paired together, with Cable playing the straight man to Deadpool's zaniness.

Ryan Reynolds will return as Wade Wilson, a.k.a. Deadpool, the Merc with a Mouth. For the sequel, he'll be joined by Josh Brolin as Cable. Cable was co-created by Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld and Louise Simonson. He has often been paired with Deadpool as his grim, serious demeanor serves as the perfect foil to Deadpool's crude and zany humor. The duo headlined an ongoing comic book series, Cable & Deadpool, for 50 issues.
Atlanta star Zazie Beetz has also been cast in Deadpool 2. She will play Domino, a mutant with probability manipulation abilities that endows her with improbably good luck. In the Marvel Comics Universe, Domino was a member of Cable's mercenary crew, Six Pack, and one of his early love interests.
