I really, REALLY hope this happens. Lang is an amazing actor, both for his military hardass characterization (Avatar) and his comedic roles (The Men Who Stare at Goats), and he'd bring a tremendous range to this fan-favorite character. My only wish after this is to have him look more like the Ultimate X-Men version (despite that Cable not really being Nathan Summers), as he has the looks of a very balanced fighter that'd work very well with Lang's build.
Let's lay some CABLE. You know I want it. This is pre-training. Thanks for spreading the word. #Deadpool pic.twitter.com/jI1Y1i0oH0— Stephen Lang (@IAmStephenLang) February 13, 2016

@VancityReynolds Deadpool was AWESOME! Blew my mind! I refuse to see Deadpool 2 if @IAmStephenLang isn't Cable. pic.twitter.com/K1fQiWcNpX— Vin Feral (@Vin_Feral) February 13, 2016
Seeing how Deadpool pretty much got pushed through into production due to mass fan backing, this is another campaign I'll get behind.
