(L-R) Director Tim Miller, actor and actor Ryan Reynolds from 'Deadpool' speak onstage at the 20th Century FOX panel during Comic-Con International 2015.

It looks like there is another update to the characters to be joining the upcoming sequel "Deadpool 2" alongside actor and protagonist, Ryan Reynolds. It has been reported that actor Josh Brolin is being added to the cast, even though he has already portrayed another character of the same Marvel Cinematic Universe.

It has been confirmed that the upcoming sequel of the Marvel movie "Deadpool" will have actor Josh Brolin to join in the cast, alongside actor Reynolds. Brolin has been known to have appeared in previous movies under the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the villain named Thanos and is set to reprise his role in the upcoming "Avengers: Infinity War" set to hit the big screens on 2018. Now, according to Deadline, the actor is set to join Reynolds and Zazie Beetz to portray the role of Cable, son of Cyclops from the X-Men.

As history serves based on the comic book version of the storylines among these superheroes, Cable first appeared as an infant in the 1986 "Uncanny X-Men" series. Furthermore, his adult character was written later by the writer Louise Simonson alongside Rob Liefeld, appearing in the March 1990 edition of "The New Mutants."

Later on in the 2004 comic book series of "Deadpool," Cable was paired with him, hence is upcoming appearance in the movie sequel. As for actor Reynolds who has been known to have starred previously in a movie under the DC Universe as the Green Lantern, he has had a great success rate as "Deadpool."

Thus, Brolin joining another movie under the Marvel Cinematic Universe sends confusion to a lot of the fans, alongside the joy that they feel as well. He was different from Reynolds since he used to star in a different universe, thus not bringing confusion to the storylines as it progresses. However, Reynolds jokingly cursed at Fox on his Twitter account, claiming that no one should play two characters in the same universe, as reported by Hollywood Reporter.

Nevertheless, the fans could not wait to see Reynolds in the upcoming movie, "Deadpool 2."
