Some SPOILERS for Deadpool ahead. Ron Perlman is still in the process of rallying fans for another Hellboy. Until that happens, He is now gunning for a role in the MCU. Cable on the next Deadpool.
A list of actors that could play Cable was compiled a few months ago by Cinemablend, and Ron Perlman was on it. We also already know that Cable will feature on the next Deadpool, following the end credit scene in the movie, as well as Ryan Reynolds saying “Your lips to God’s ears, my friend. Believe me, that’s being talked about.”
Following the reveal, Perlman is now campaigning to feature as Cable on the next Deadpool
Ron Perlman is also still campaigning for Hellboy 3, even though he deems it a long shot.
“Guillermo told me what the resolve of the trilogy would look like, in broad strokes, and it’s such an amazingly theatrical, cinematic idea, that I found it essential that we do it. We were designed to be a trilogy, with a beginning, a middle and an end. We’ve only done two-thirds, so I feel that we’re not really done until we finish it … [And then, as to the actual story…] Holy sh*t, he’s the beast of the Apocalypse. He has to take down civilization. He has to. It’s non-negotiable. That’s the foundation for the story, and that’s why I think it would be a shame if we don’t do it.”
But the actor concedes that the project is becoming less likely by the day, even joking that if it doesn’t happen soon he’ll be doing it from a wheelchair.
