Deadpool hits theaters this week and is tracking at an 82% on Rotten Tomatoes with estimates of $70 million opening weekend. All this excitement has led FOX to greenlight a Deadpool sequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Anyone with half a brain would know that Cable needs to be part of that sequel, as the audience can only handle so much off-the-wall antics without a straight guy to punch Wade Wilson in the mouth.
In the second post-credits scene Deadpool mentions a time-traveling character with a robotic arm will be in the sequel.
@bleedingcool Deadpool said all that, no visual of Cable is shown.

Casting for Cable is still unknown. Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are working on the script for the sequel.
February 2018 sounds like a good release date, but no official announcement has been made.
Stay tuned for more Deadpool sequel news.
