In the first movie, Wade Wilson did mention such a character joining the cast at the end of the post-credits stinger. A flurry of names have floated around including Brad Pitt to David Harbour from Stranger Things. And just last night, one specific star has cleared up such rumor.
On Jimmy Kimmel Live, Pierce Brosnan has clarified that he is in fact not currently slated to play the role of Cable in the upcoming ”
