Why Hollywood won't give Cable his own movie
In the current cultural superhero craze, anything is possible—and potentially profitable. Established heroes have had terrible film track records (We're looking at you, Green Lantern) while relative unknowns like Jessica Jones and Luke Cage have enjoyed critical and commercial success. We've watched some truly bizarre characters be brought to life, like Guardians of the Galaxy fan favorites Groot and Rocket Raccoon. It doesn't need to make sense—the only rule is that it has to be entertaining. (Call it the rule of Deadpool.) So with all that said, why hasn't Hollywood given Cable his own movie? Turns out this is one comics adaptation that's trickier than you might think.
