A while back even saw Stephen Lang state he wants the role.
Now Stephen Lang has taken to Twitter to reveals his upcoming filming schedule, which includes Mortal Engines and Avatar 2, meaning no time for Cable.
#MORTALENGINES this spring, #AVATAR this summer. Best of good fortune to DP2. I’m betting it’ll be great. And I accept cameos. ‘Nuff said.
Cable has yet to be cast for Deadpool 2, but other actors mentioned as potential candidates include David Harbour, Russell Crowe, Pierce Brosnan, Kyle Chandler, Ron Perlman, Liam Neeson and even Dolph Lundgren.
