Could the casting of Josh Brolin as Thanos and Cable be used for Deadpool's arrival in the MCU?
While Disney and Marvel Studios are currently considering writing the character of Deadpool in order to orchestrate his arrival in the MCU, several people – starting by superhero creator Rob Liefeld – haven't shied away from voicing their skepticism. However, since Kevin Feige's announcements at San Diego Comic Con in 2019, many solutions have been proposed to welcome Wade Wilson in the MCU. Whether it is through the Multiverse introduced in Doctor Strange 2 , the superhero's belonging to another Earth or the creation of a dark and alternate universe for Deadpool, Blade and the X-Men , fans don't seem to lack imagination, another possibility even wanting the bond between Thanos and Cable to bring the character played by Ryan Reynolds into the MCU.
As a reminder, the two antagonists present in Avengers: Endgame and Deadpool 2 were played by Josh Brolin. Therefore, and given the meta aspect attributed, since the release of the first installment, to Deadpool, it would not be surprising if the character uses this connection to make his entry into the Marvel universe. Having often broken the fourth wall in order to address his audience, Wade Wilson could for example explain that Cable is actually an alternate version of Thanos, each of them having several similarities. Representing major enemies, they were also driven by deep and personal motivations. If one tried to find his murdered wife and daughter, the other wanted above all to accomplish a megalomaniac destiny. Both using artifacts and other gadgets to control the weather, Thanos and Cable could indeed be related.
