Ryan Reynolds who will star as Deadpool in the X-Men Origins: Wolverine spin-off recently spoke with MTV admitting that while chances are slim, he hopes to see Cable, his favorite time-traveling mutant in Marvel’s upcoming “Deadpool” film.

While he is not completely optimistic that Cable will appear, he remains hopeful saying, “We’ll see. That is all being discussed.”

“I’m hoping Cable will be in it. Look, I’ve made no secret that I love that character.”

Reynolds was more optimistic, however, about two other X-Men characters appearing: the villains Ajax and Black Tom Cassidy.

“I also love some of the more preliminary characters at the beginning of the series. I like Ajax — that’s an easier character to put in. And Black Tom,” he said. “I think there’s a lot of different villains [we’re considering]; you could do a whole bunch of villains in [the first film], or you could just have Deadpool going up against one guy. We’ll see.”
