We know that Deadpool 2 will introduce X-Force’s Cable to Fox’s X-Men cinematic universe and there has been a lot of speculation about who might play the character on the big screen. When Deadpool director Tim Miller was still attached to the project, rumor had it he was pushing for Friday Night Lights star Kyle Chandler to play the role while the studio was pushing for Liam Neeson.
We haven’t heard anything from the casting rumor mill since John Wick co-director David Leitch signed on to helm the sequel, but outspoken comic writer Rob Liefeld (who created Deadpool and Cable) has taken to Twitter to offer his fantasy casting choice: Russell Crowe. What followed was an interesting exchange between Crowe and Liefeld. Read the Oscar-winning star’s response to Liefeld’s Russell Crowe Deadpool 2 fantasy casting, after the jump.

This year, 20th Century Fox has three films set within the X-Men film universe heading into production. There’s the highly anticipated Deadpool 2 following up last year’s runaway R-rated hit, the X-Men spin-off The New Mutants from The Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone, and the next installment of the primary mutant franchise, reportedly titled X-Men: Supernova, and likely directed by Simon Kinberg, who is also producing all of them.
Since Simon Kinberg is the common thread between all of these films, it should come as no surprise that he’s in the know regarding the development of each them. The producer is currently making the rounds promoting Logan (which he also produced), he’s been fielding a lot of questions about the future of the X-Men universe. Though he wasn’t able to give any major details away, he did confirm that 20th Century Fox is aiming to have both The New Mutants and Deadpool 2 in theaters in 2018. Read More »

From the beginning, director James Mangold wanted to make a different kind of superhero movie with Logan. In tone and scale, it looks different compared to most comic book adaptations, which now tend to involve cameos, sometimes to the detriment of the story at hand. Mangold didn’t want to risk compromising Logan, and Hugh Jackman‘s final performance as the character, so he was hesitant to force some cameos into the movie, which is why he ultimately abandoned a sequence involving a few familiar mutants.
Below, learn more about the scrapped Logan cameos.
