Ryan Reynolds Hints at Pierce Brosnan Playing Cable in 'Deadpool 2'
Deadpool 2 is still looking for its Cable, but could they have possibly found him in a former James Bond? Rumors are swirling after Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds shared a photo to his Instagram account of himself, Hugh Jackman, and former Bond Pierce Brosnan posing in the "hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil" position. Reynolds simply used the caption "Wolvie. Bond. Wade."

Jackman also shared a photo of the trio, and he, too, declined to mention what brought the three actors together.

Reynolds has been publicly pestering Jackman to appear as Wolverine in an upcoming Deadpool film, and fans are suspecting that the actors' meeting could have to do with Deadpool 2. Brosnan, who has not previously been rumored to play Cable, would actually make a lot of sense in the role. He's about the right age at 63, he has tons of experience as an action star, and let's face it, the guy's effortlessly cool. His natural demeanor would also make a great foil for Reynolds' Deadpool, and the idea of seeing these two square off against each other is pretty exciting.

Brosnan is most well known for playing Bond throughout the '90s, starring in films like GoldenEye and Die Another Day. There's no evidence that Brosnan is up for the role, other than the mysterious photos, but we're really hoping he ends up as Cable. And while we're dreaming, we hope Jackman shows up as Wolverine in the film, too.

Deadpool 2 is currently scheduled to come out in 2018.
