So who should play the time-travelling mutant?
Cable creator Rob Liefeld weighed in on Twitter and recommended Jon Hamm.
"Yes! Jon Hamm, Dream Future Cable pick, wins for Mad Men!" Liefeld tweeted.
As noted, Jon Hamm just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television Series Drama for Mad Men.
Regarding the future of Cable in the X-Men movie universe, Deadpool director Tim Miller all but confirmed Cable for the sequel.
"There aren’t really many definitive Deadpool villains, apart from Cable," Miller told Empire Magazine. "If we don’t put Cable in Deadpool 2 I think we’ll be run out of town on a rail."
