WARNING: Spoilers for Deadpool will follow.
Those involved with the Deadpool movie have been teasing an appearance from Cable for a while now, but the Merc with a Mouth himself confirmed that the fan-favourite character will be making an appearance in the sequel during his after-credits scene (where he also hilariously mentioned Dolph Lundgren and Keira Knightley as possible candidates to play the role).
The son of Cyclops and Jean Grey, Cable, aka Nathan Summers was sent into the future as a baby after being infected with a techo-organic virus which gave him a bionic arm as it spread across his body and slowly started killing him, though he still has a wealth of other powers – including telepathic and telekinetic abilities) and enjoys wielding some pretty massive futuristic guns!
