... Josh Brolin.

That makes this four different comic characters the man has played after Thanos, Dwight in Sin city 2, and Johnah Hex.

Young Agent K also

I'm surprised. I would think he would have a clause in his contract preventing him from doing other studios superhero movies until he completes his contract with Marvel Studios.

Oh yeah, so that's five.

I think he might have a record.  A lot of people have 3-4 comic roles under their belts (Chris Evans has 4).  I think this might be the first guy who got 5.

Johnny, Cap, Lucas Lee, whatever his character name was in the The Losers, Curtis in Snowpiercer, and he did the voice of Casey in the 07 TMNT movie so he's got 6.

Real good actor. He's got an old school manly man vibe.

Good, thats all I wanted for Cable. I was worried they were gonna cast a young pretty boy, which would defeat the purpose of Cable in the first place.

Only downside is he's four inches shorter than Ryan Renolds. Gonna be hard to get used to Cable staring up at Deadpool.

It's not like they can't make him look taller.

Yeah Cable does have a tendency to wear some pretty big honkin' boots as it is.

Camera tricks made Gandalf tall and the hobbits small. However, making Wolverine look like a small scrapper wasn't a priority for 16 years of films.

In the very first film, he was obviously shorter than Cyclops but they stopped caring after that.

The first film was weirdly half-assed about his height. There would be scenes shot from the torso-up where Wolverine was much shorter than Cyclops. Then less than a minute later there would be a scene where everyone is walking and Wolverine is clearly quite tall.
