After the surprisingly huge success of Deadpool, a sequel is obviously already in development. Ryan Reynolds will return as the Merc with a Mouth and he’ll be joined by Cable and Domino, two characters from the Marvel comic books who are finally showing up on the big screen. Domino has already been cast and will be played by Zazie Beetz from TV’s Atlanta, but the search for a Cable remains.

Pierce Brosnan is one of several actors who’ve been mentioned for the role. Rumors started circulating after a picture of Brosnan alongside Reynolds and Hugh Jackman spread on Twitter and fans assumed this meant he was going to be in the next Deadpool film. However, while appearing on Jimmy Kimmel, Brosnan denied the casting rumors.

“Not true,” the former 007 said. “Nothing’s come my way yet…. I don’t lie. They know where to find me, it’s just fabricated.” Responding to the photo, the actor said, “We were sitting, waiting for a plane, the three of us, and the guy said, ‘Quick, let’s get a photograph,’ and [I] jump in the middle and Mr. Reynolds said, ‘Let’s do Three Wise Monkeys.’ [We] put it out there and it went viral.”

So, let this be a lesson that not all photos translate into casting decisions. Meanwhile, actors like Michael Shannon and David Harbour are still in the running for Cable.
