X-Men Apocalypse is widely expected to introduce not only En Sabah Nur, the powerful mutant seen in the post-credits scene of [X-Men: Days Of Future Past](movie:203942) assembling the Great Pyramid with his powers of telekinesis, but also the powerful time traveling maverick that is Cable.

X-Men Apocalypse: Cable

Cable is the son of Scott Summers (Cyclops) and a clone of Jean Grey - but more than that he is one of the most powerful mutants of all time, and one of the very few who are able to defeat En Sabah Nur aka Apocalypse.

Given that Apocalypse is the main villain of the next X-Men movie, fans are widely predicting that we will also see Cable. It is not clear whether he would be in alliance with the X-Men or with Apocalypse. The former is a little more likely, but he has been on both sides in the comics, even killing some of the X-Men.

But that is not all.

Deadpool Movie Confirmed!

It was a long time coming, but it is now officially confirmed. A Deadpool movie is coming. Ryan Reynolds will play Wade Wilson, the Weapon X created insane anarchic joker killer better known as [Deadpool](movie:38663), or the "Merc with a Mouth".

Apparently studio executives were convinced by fan reaction to the test footage, which was leaked online around the time of Comic Con 2014.

Take a look at the footage here:

If Looks Could Kill

The first in the Cable & Deadpool line, this plot sees Cable and Deadpool share more than the same comic book page - they share a body. After being contaminated by a virus, Cable has to absorb Cable and throw him up, mixing their DNA and ensuring from then on that whenever one teleports, he takes the other with him.


This story line sees Cable's hometown of Providence under attack, and despite the efforts of Deadpool, Rogue and Agency X, nothing seems to be able to help. Cable, however, knows that his island is equipped with a failsafe, and that the island will explode if he dies. Cable sacrifices himself to save the others, and Deadpool is left alone, mourning his friend.
