'Deadpool 2' Has Found Its Cable & It May Surprise You!

Whoah! Its looks as though we've got some really surprising, but very intriguing news for all you X-Men fans today!

Now let us start by saying that late last week, we were informed by one of our sources close to the project that we would all be finding out who Cable was within the next month or so...... For us to keep our ears close to the ground. Now this happens!

Earlier today, both Deadpool himself, Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman took to their social media accounts to share these two images below which reveal Reynolds and Jackman surrounding none other the legendary James Bond actor Peirce Brosnan.

While we didn't really think much of it at first, other major news sites are starting to report that this could mean that Brosnan is circling or has already been cast as the legendary X-Men character Cable, who in the comics is the son of Cyclops and comes from the future. The character has long been confirmed to appear in Deadpool 2.

Now of course you should probably always take these kinds of reports with a huge grain of salt. Until the studios confirm it nothing is concrete in Hollywood. For now though lets have fun speculating and enjoying just how cool this casting could be!

The two images come captioned with "hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil".

I personally would love this casting, my only hesitation is brosnan's voice and what i've always pictured as Cable's voice in my head and its quite different. As long as he bulks up, this could be epic, he definitely has the age and the gravitas!

So what are your thoughts? Sound off in the comments section below. As always, thanks for stopping by EastCoastMovieGuys!

Stay tuned for more news on this possible casting of Cable in Deadpool 2.

Deadpool 2 is currently slated to hit theaters in January 2018.

Captain Kaye's 4 Things He Wants to See in Ben Affleck's 'Batman' Movie

By Michael Kaye

Welcome to the conclusion of my Ben Affleck retrospective, where I've taken a look at all of his directorial efforts, including his latest feature Live By Night. As you guys can tell by these reviews, I'm a huge fan of Affleck as a director, and of course, the very next project he has lined up after Live By Night is in fact The Batman. In this editorial, I'll be identifying the top 4 things I want to see in that movie, based on his previous directorial efforts.

1. I want this movie to have an engaging mystery. Batman hasn't exactly been living up to his reputation as the "World's Greatest Detective" on the big screen in a very long time, if ever. What I've learned from watching Gone Baby Gone is that Affleck knows how to tell a good mystery thriller, one that keeps us guessing, while giving us just enough clues to help the audience follow along. The only story and/or character based information we know so far about the movie is that Joe Manganiello has been cast as Deathstroke. We don't know if he's the main antagonist, or if he's one of many. What is he doing in Gotham City? Who is he working for? The answer to these or any other questions would require a great deal of sleuthing.

2. This is a casting call for a few characters that we have yet to see on the big screen. One thing I noticed as I watching all of Affleck's directorial efforts is that he likes to work with some of the same actors in at least two or more films. For example, Titus Welliver appears in all 4 films, from Gone Baby Gone to Live By Night. Based on his appearance and his character from The Town, I could easily picture him as Detective Harvey Bullock. Just the thought of him and J.K. Simmons bouncing off one another sounds like it could be a whole lot of fun. Chris Messina was my second choice for Bullock, but I thought it might be better to cast him as one of my favorite villains, Black Mask.

3. I may or may not have some unrealistically high expectations concerning the action scenes, especially after seeing the climax of The Town. If for no other reason, this was why having Deathstroke as one of the antagonists really got me excited, because that has to result in one epic third act showdown between two of the best fighters in the DC Universe. Also, since Affleck loves putting a good car chase in his films, it'll be cool to see how he handles the Batmobile.

4. This one is the most important: keep the focus on Batman and his supporting cast. Yes, I know the movie takes place deep within the DC Extended Universe, with characters such as Commissioner Gordon and Deathstroke having already been introduced in Justice League, but let's not overcomplicate things. Part of my issue with Live By Night was that it felt like Affleck was biting off more than he could chew with the story, leaving not a whole lot of room for character development. I want to make sure he's learned from that mistake while penning the Batman script. In all of his previous films, everything just felt tighter, more focused.

There is a lot riding on this Batman movie. Not only is it some people's introduction to the DCEU, but for those fans who were disappointed in Batman V Superman or Suicide Squad, this is their reintroduction. Everyone wants The Batman to succeed, but nobody wants that more than Ben Affleck himself, which is why I'm confident that he's the right man for the job.

Now I want to hear from you guys. First off, are you caught up on all of Affleck's directorial efforts, and if so, what do you think of his work? Also, what would you like to see in The Batman that I didn't mention already? Drop your thoughts in the comments below, and stay tuned for my next review.
