Deadpool Creator Pushing For Cable Franchise

We’ve said time and again that things over at Marvel are up in the air. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is as secure as ever, but anything owned by Fox at one point is stuck in some sort of odd purgatory, and perhaps the ones with the biggest question marks surrounding them are characters who have regularly associated with Deadpool. This is one franchise that’s done very well for itself.

We don’t know whether or not Deadpool himself will actually be allowed to exist in the MCU at this point, let alone any of the other characters. But that hasn’t stopped Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld from posting his opinions on the matter. The comic book artist took to Instagram to express his happiness with Brolin, and his desire to see him play the character again.

“Watching Josh Brolin bring Cable to life was an obvious thrill, not just for me but for millions of fans that have followed his debut since New Mutants #87. Cable is the face of two blockbuster franchises at Marvel, his own best selling line over the past 28 years and the record-shattering X-Force.

I get asked repeatedly about when we will see Josh as Cable again, and my hope is that Marvel Studios will launch one of their favorite sons, Josh, as well as one of their most popular characters into a solo franchise much sooner than later. As a character Cable has outsold any comic book by Dr. Strange, Ant-Man, Black Widow, The Eternals, even Iron Man.

The character has lined the toy aisles for 28 years, non-stop. The character, as part of the Deadpool universe, made it safely across and into the Disney fold. He’s a time traveler to boot, ripe for expanded tales of his rich history. And longtime fans are aware of the unique opportunities that fulfilling the extent of role presents.

I’ve spoken on numerous occasions to Josh about his passion to go deeper into the complexities of CABLE. If there is any doubt about wether he’s game to play Cable again, just ask him. Plus, he’s told me he’s going to get even more ‘jacked’ and swole for his next outing!”

Do you think this is at all possible? Will Disney allow these characters to keep living on in any way, shape, or form, or will we once again have to see these guys recast to fit the more family-friendly mold? Let us know your thoughts down below!
