If you've been paying attention to the world of comic book movies, you've noticed that Deadpool 2 is already the talk of the town.
The film may not even be in production yet, but it's got a lot of factors working in its favor. Obviously the incredible success of the first film has people buzzing about the sequel. On top of that, the process of casting Cable - Deadpool's longtime accomplice - has been a topic of discussion.
The role is one of the most coveted in the industry, attracting the likes of enormous A-list stars. This past week however, reports stated that the field had been narrowed down to two - Michael Shannon and Brad Pitt. The former is said to be the front-runner at this point.
The idea of seeing Michael Shannon as the time-traveling Cable is awesome, and we were dying to see what the former General Zod would look like in the role. Luckily, BossLogic is great at what he does.
We reached out the artist about the concept, and he definitely delivered. BossLogic's take on Michael Shannon as Cable is spot-on, and it makes everyone get even more excited about the possibility.
