It was rumored that Stranger Things’ David Harbour was being linked to play the Cable role in Deadpool 2 it looks like we might finally have a frontrunner.

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Man of Steel’s Michael Shannon might be switching to team Marvel as they state he’s now the frontrunner for the Cable aka Nathan Summers role.

They add that Shannon isn’t the only name in the running this could suggest that Harbour and Brad Pitt could be in the mix, but we’ll have to wait and see what happens.
