Even before the release of Deadpool, Simon Kinberg already mentioned in September 2015 that a sequel for the movie was already in development. As much as we're excited to see Deadpool battle his enemies once again, there is one other thing that you should really feel thrilled about - the appearance of Nathan Summers, also known as Cable, in the film.

Cable is the time-travelling son of Cylops and Madeline Pryor, a clone of Jean Grey. He was sent from the future and he will team up with Deadpool to try and bring out a better world.

There have been many names suggested by the fans who could best play the role but in terms of acting chops, physical resemblance and movie history, there is only one name that will come to mind - Stephen Lang.

No one will ever be as bad ass as this dude. Stephen Lang already appeared in nearly 100 movies but he is surely best known for his role in Avatar as Colonel Miles Quaritch. Aside from his uncanny resemblance with the character, Lang himself is really working hard and beefing up for the position. In addition, Lang has been in the industry for as long as all of us can remember, both on and off the stage. Some of his roles even falls in the same line with Cable as the bad ass soldier who will not make any mistake or any rough military man in some sort.

Ron Perlman's name has been floating into suggestions too and even Deadpool himself had a few like Mel Gibson and Keira Knightley.

There's not much details about the movie yet but the sequel for Deadpool is set to release in 2017.

So what do you think of Stephen Lang as Cable? Do you have other actors in mind? Comment below and let me know. Thanks for reading!
