‘Deadpool 2’ Now Courting Michael Shannon To Play Cable

Michael Shannon might join Deadpool 2

The search for the actor to play Cable in Deadpool 2 is still on. Apparently, the list that the title character gave during the end credits wasn’t good enough. Based on previous reports, the actors currently being eyed are just as good. A couple of weeks ago, David Harbour tested for the role, while Kyle Chandler was rumored. Stephen Lang threw his own name into the hat. Michael Shannon (Zod in Man Of Steel) was also being looked at, but scheduling issues would prevent him from taking the role. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case any longer.

According to new reports, Shannon is now one of the frontrunners to play Cable. More on the story below.

Jeff Nichols' Loving Header Image

Ruth Neega can easily be seen as one of the breakout star of the past few years. From Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to AMC’s Preacher, and most recently Warcraft. Now she will appear in a powerful film simply titled Loving from director Jeff Nichols. Nichols is having quite the year himself with Midnight Special being released a couple of months back.

As the title suggests, the film is about love. The movie centers on a real-life couple whose interracial marriage sparked a historic legal battle. It also stars Joel Edgerton, who will play the husband to Neega’s character. Check out the trailer below.

Movie Review: Midnight Special
Three-D   |  

Midnight Special trailer header

Midnight Special
** out of ****
Directed by Jeff Nichols
Starring: Michael Shannon, Joel Edgerton, Adam Driver, Jaeden Lieberher, Kirsten Dunst, and Sam Shepherd
Release Date- March 18, 2016

Midway through Midnight Special there’s a line that’s uttered from a father to his son that sticks with us, despite how generic it initially seems, and encapsulates its director’s entire film oeuvre. “I like worrying about you,” Roy (Michael Shannon) says to his son, Alton (Jaeden Lieberher), after a near death experience. Such a simple line depicts the compulsion men invariably encounter in each of the four films made by Arkansas director Jeff Nichols. His men are troubled, burdened, and eventually consumed by an unhealthy urge to either protect their family, friends, or legacy.

Unlike the best films of Nichols (this ranks last on his list), Midnight Special does not fully go with the reverberations that such a faithful adherence to a compulsion would lead to. Rather, we are dragged along an erratic journey that fuses a variety of genres (inevitable comparisons to E.T. Will ensue), eventually losing sight of Mr. Nichols’ sweet spot: examining man’s unerring religious devotion to protection and human emotion.

Zod Actor Michael Shannon On ‘Batman v Superman’

Michael Shannon as General Zod Batman v Superman

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice hit theaters this past weekend, and so far we’ve posted two reviews that did not speak favorably about the film. Zack Snyder‘s follow-up to Man of Steel currently has an astonishing 29% on Rotten Tomatoes, while the audience score stands at 73%. And let’s not forget that Sad Affleck meme. Looks like Snyder has successfully created yet another polarizing film where the apologists will be working all hours of the night to convince you that this is the best movie, even better than anything Marvel could come up with.
