Michael Shannon Is Frontrunner To Play 'Cable' In 'Deadpool 2'

Outsiders - March 22, 2017
According to sources, Michael Shannon is currently leading the pack of actors who are on the shortlist to play Cable opposite Ryan Reynolds for the Deadpool sequel.

'The character Shannon would potentially play, Cable, was co-created by Deadpool co-creator Rob Liefeld and writer Louise Simonson, and is described as in many ways being the opposite of Deadpool: a man who is a leader and used to being obeyed, who is very controlled but with an aura of simmering violence. In the comics, Cable was from the future and was the adult of Scott Summers, also known as the X-Man Cyclops.'

The sequel is being directed by David Leitch with Reynolds reprising his role as the wisecracking mercenary with the story expanding to include other characters from Deadpool's corner of Marvelís X-Men universe. Zazie Beetz is already cast as the super-powered merc named Domino.
