Josh Brolin has ever so slightly lifted the lid on whether or not he will be a part of the upcoming Deadpool & Wolverine movie.


The highly anticipated superhero film will be flying into cinemas this summer, and fans will finally get to see Hugh Jackman back in action as Wolverine, alongside Ryan Reynolds's Deadpool.

However, one character who is noticeably missing is Cable, played by Josh Brolin in Deadpool 2, and it appears fans of the movie franchise likely won't get the chance to see Cable again.

Speaking exclusively to to promote season 2 of Outer Range, Brolin said: "What if I tell you? Then it's no fun. Ryan [Reynolds] hit me up the other day and I hadn't heard from him in a while, and I think he said, 'Congratulations on Dune 2.'

"That's all I know. I don't know if because of that I'm in Deadpool & Wolverine, I don't know."

While he didn't confirm or deny his role in the film, Brolin told The Playlist's Mike DeAngelo he "so wanted to be in that movie".

"Cable was a lot of fun," he said. "I really liked doing that role. That was a lot of fun... Hugh [Jackman], I'm absolutely in love with. I know Ryan now and I've met Hugh a couple of times, and I think when he did Logan - forget it!

"I mean, Scott Frank, who wrote it, is a good friend of mine, and I just think the coming together of [these characters] is fantastic."
