Well, that certainly took a pleasantly unexpected turn. Just days after the writers of Deadpool assured fans that we’d know who’s playing Cable in the sequel “very soon” comes a very interesting update. Michael Shannon is the latest frontrunner for the role of the comic-book character making his highly-anticipated debut in Deadpool 2. Although there are still a few other names on the studio’s shortlist, everyone’s favorite weirdo is the current favorite — because obviously.

While there’s no official release date yet (although it’s rumored to hit in 2018), Deadpool 2 is gearing up to start filming pretty soon. We don’t know much about the plot or any new characters other than the fact that Cable is going to be in it, which is something we’ve known since the first Deadpool movie teased it after the credits. But as to who’s playing Cable, it’s anyone’s guess at this point as the movie is only just starting to round out their cast. A few days ago, Deadpool’s creator Rob Liefeld wanted Russell Crowe to play the part, which was probably just a bit of industry fancasting. But now we know that one of the names on the list of possibilities is none other than Stranger Things’ David Harbour.

Fantastic Five: Best Time Travelers

times five

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.

Time travel is a tricky topic that can often trip up a story, but when it's done right it can be one of the most exciting and rewarding tropes in superhero fiction. This week, we're counting down the very best time-hoppers in all of superhero comics, in a brand new edition of Fantastic Five.

Cable And The ’90s X-Men Get The Full Funko Treatment

It's a good time to be an X-Men fan. It's seemed recently like Marvel's mutants were getting the short end of the merchandizing stick, in favor of a focus on the Marvel Studios movies star Avengers and attempts to make the Inhumans happen.

But now, with the upbeat ResurrXion on the horizon, that seems to be changing, and one step in that change is the introduction of a selection of classic X-Men character to Funko's line of Marvel collectibles.

All week, Marvel has been taunting us on its official Twitter account with teasers labelled "ResurrXion," which reveal the titles for X-books that come after this winter's Inhumans Vs X-Men crossover.

While we wait for more details, let's look at these teasers to get an idea of what's coming for the X-Men line in 2017.

Nothing Can Stop the Juggernaut Except Maybe All These Marvel Legends X-Men Figures [Review]

Marvel Legends X-Men - Juggernaut Build-a-Figure Series

It's been a long time since the Marvel Legends toy line has dabbled with the likes of the X-Men. There have been a few lines here and there, but the frequency of Avengers and Spider-Man series has drowned out the past efforts rather loudly. This most recent wave of figures bodes well for the future of X-Men at Hasbro though. The last time we saw the X-Men, it was a smaller set with a Build-a-Jubilee available only at Toys 'R Us. This wave is available everywhere, and it's huge.

I don't just mean there are a lot of figures --- there are eight in total --- I mean it's physically massive. That's thanks in part to the Build-a-Figure being Juggernaut, who is among the biggest BAFs offered in the line. Still, eight figures is about as big as a collections in the Marvel Legends line get, but it's hard to be disappointed when the roster is as strong as this one.

Stephen Lang, Dolph Lundgren and Ron Perlman have all tossed their hat in the ring for the part, but if this new report is true, then Fox may be taking a slightly different approach to the character.
