X-Force In Full Effect. Or Is It Six Pack?

It is amazing that in this day and age, with all the ability to figure out what’s happening before it’s happened, we are at somewhat of a loss here. There are two prevailing rumors on who we are looking at in the above screenshot, but the real confusion is created in figuring out just who we’re looking at: one being that this is X-Force. An X-Force movie is in production, and these characters could fit into that schema. However, this could also be Six Pack. Just who are the other characters in this that aren’t Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) and Zazie Beetz (Domino.)

crews

That is 100% Terry Crews and it’s been confirmed he’s in this movie. Original reports had him as Anarchist, but he could be anyone from Bedlam, to G.W. Bridge (I hope note – I need Bridge to have the trademark full white mane,) to Garrison Kane to Hammer. By the look of the face, which looks like some kind of goggles, I’d say it’s Anarchist, but if they put the giant X on the side of his head, Bedlam would be cool, too.

zeit

The character between Domino and Deadpool in the picture appears to be Zeitgeist, again due to the yellow masking around the mouth, but others have speculated it could be a somewhat gender-fluid Feral, who is expected to at least cameo. Rumors are that Bill Skarsgård is in the movie, and this looks like it could be him. I’m hoping for Zeitgeist.

shatters

Finally, this is definitely Shatterstar. Stefan Kapičić, who plays Colossus, admitted as much in an interview with the Inverse Entertainment website. Ryan Reynolds kind of demanded him for this film, so this is cool to see, but not a giant surprise.

We’re still waiting on seeing Sunspot, who we also expect to see in this film as well. Last movie, they couldn’t afford to have all the guns they wanted and had to make 3 characters into one. This time, they’ve got heroes we haven’t seen in the first two trailers. Is it over-stuffed? Tell us what you think!

Check out the Tweet

As we can see our faves are returning, Dopinder (Karan Soni), Vanessa (Morena Baccarin), Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), Blind Al (Leslie Uggams), Colossus (Stefan Kapicic) and Weasel (TJ Miller). We also see newcomers Domino (Zazie Beets), Cable (Josh Brolin). There’s even the patriarch Stan Lee on the wall.

Between this poster and set photos the Deadpool media blitz is about to begin.

We Have our First Look of Domino in Deadpool 2

Well this is one of the two highly anticipated first looks from the currently in production Deadpool 2 film. This one for sure does not disappoint.

We now have our first look at Zazie Beetz as Domino which was revealed that us by Deadpool himself Ryan Reynolds.

Reynolds revealed the first photo of Beetz as Domino via Twitter. The photo recreates one of the famous early promotional images from the first Deadpool movie, which had Reynolds in his Deadpool costumes splayed on a fur rug in front of a fire.

 

Zazie Beetz is best known for her role on FX’s Atlanta. According to the many rumors that circulated concerning the highly sought after role, Beetz beat out stiff competition that included Janelle Monae, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and Lizzy Caplan.

Domino is another creation of Rob Liefeld, who created Deadpool and Cable. Domino is a mercenary with the mutant gift to subconsciously manipulate probabilities in her favor within a localized field, which manifests roughly as her having very good luck.

Domino has a professional and romantic history in the Marvel Comics universe with Cable, who will be played by Josh Brolin in Deadpool 2. She was also a founding member of Cable’s paramilitary mutant squad X-Force.

Interestingly, Domino made her first appearances in New Mutants #98, the same issue that featured the first appearance of Deadpool. However, it was later revealed that the shapeshifting mutant Copycat, the character that Morena Baccarin’s Vanessa is inspired by, was actually posing as Domino. The real Domino didn’t debut until X-Force #8 months later. It’s unclear if Deadpool 2will address this storyline.

David Leitch (John Wick) will direct the sequel, taking over for original Deadpool director Tim Miller.

Ryan Reynolds will return as Wade Wilson, a.k.a. Deadpool, the Merc with a Mouth. For the sequel, he’ll be joined by Josh Brolin as Cable. Cable was co-created by Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld and Louise Simonson. He has often been paired with Deadpool as his grim, serious demeanor serves as the perfect foil to Deadpool’s crude and zany humor. The duo headlined an ongoing comic book series, Cable & Deadpool, for 50 issues.
