Stephen Lang is gunning to play the mutant Cable on the big screen.
The name Cable has been tossed around a lot, including by Ryan Reynolds, who teased the character’s potential involvement in a Deadpool sequel. As the film’s writers revealed they are getting a head start on the next chapter, Lang definitely wants in.
“Let’s lay some CABLE. You know I want it,” Lang wrote on Twitter next to a photo from the gym. “This is pre-training. Thanks for spreading the word.” The actor, who played the villain in James Cameron’s Avatar, also retweeted side-by-side comparisons of himself and the comic book character.
Deadpool hit theaters this weekend and already broke box office records, becoming the biggest R-rated box office debut ever.
