“Dearest @therock based on reports of outstanding chemistry between you and a familiar friend, I believe the next logical step is for you to join the Marvel Universe as Garrison Kane in a future Deadpool installment,” Liefeld wrote in an Instagram post. “You’re a natural and Kane is already celebrated by millions of comics fans who have thrilled to his adventures since I first introduced him in X-Force#2! Your pal, Rob!”

Included in the Instagram post are three images: one of Johnson from Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, and two photos of Garrison Kane action figures.

Created by Liefeld and Fabian Nicieza, Kane debuted in 1991’s X-Force#2 as a former member of Cable’s Six Pack mercenary group. After losing his arms and legs in a mission against Cable’s evil clone, Stryfe, Kane joins the Weapon X program alongside Deadpool and receives cybernetic limbs.

While it remains to be seen if Johnson will take Liefeld up on his offer to suit up as Garrison Kane in the next Deadpoolfilm, the chances of seeing the character on the big screen remain high. With Liefeld creations Cable, Domino and Shatterstar already becoming stars in Deadpool 2, the next logical step is adding another Weapon X soldier to the mix.
