The popularity and success of director Tim Miller’s Deadpool means that Deadpool 2 has become easily one of the most anticipated films of the next few years. Sadly, we don’t know too much about the film just yet, as writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have only just begun scripting the sequel – but one very important inclusion has been confirmed: the movie will introduce the first live-action version of the famed X-Men character Cable.

Introduced to Marvel Comics in 1986, Cable has a long and storied history in the comic book world – but his name doesn’t exactly carry a great deal of clout or awareness outside of those sequels. As such, we thought it might be helpful to put together a handy little guide that will help those completely unfamiliar with the character get better acquainted. What do you need to know about Cable before Deadpool 2? Read on to find out!

Cable Marvel Comics
He has some very well-known parents
Cable’s non-mutant name is Nathan Summers, and that’s a surname that should be very familiar to X-Men fans. While it wasn’t information that was immediately introduced with the character, Cable is actually the son of Scott Summers a.k.a. Cyclops, and Madelyne Pryor – a clone of Jean Grey created by the genetics-obsessed villain Mister Sinister. Given that young versions of Cyclops and Jean will be introduced in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse (played by Tye Sheridan and Sophie Turner, respectively), it’s entirely possible that the movie franchise will eventually include this detail, though we don’t know at this stage if it’s information that will be put into continuity in Deadpool 2.
