With Josh Brolin added as Cable and Zazie Beetz in the role of Domino, the new additions to the cast for the Deadpool sequel are nearly in place. But there’s still time to squeeze a major villain in there.
Jack Kesy, shortly to be seen in Baywatch, is the villain concerned, and he’s going to be joining the film in a thus-far unnamed role. The rumour mill right now suggests Black Tom Cassidy, a man with particular powers surrounding plant life. We await confirmation.
Elsewhere, while a lot of the recent news about Deadpool 2 has focused on the casting, there’s more going on behind the scenes as the film goes into production, and it looks like we can expect an increase in the kind of savage and brutal insults dished up by bartender Weasel when the sequel to the unlikely smash hit lands next year.
The scenes between Ryan Reynolds’ Wade Wilson and T.J. Miller’s Weasel were some of the funniest in the first outing. As friend, confidant and accidental superhero-namer, the character of Weasel also helped ground the film amongst the wacky carnage, so it makes sense that they’d want a bit more of that in the follow-up.
During a recent press interview for The Emoji Movie, Miller sat down with Movieweb and talked about reprising the role of Weasel in Deadpool 2 later this year.
“Marvel will cut off my hand and tongue if I tell you,” Miller joked. “But…let me just tell you that the second installment will be even more weaselicious. Let me just put it that way, to quote Pauly Shore. I’m very excited about it. That starts in August and September. I’m so excited. I know it means so much to Ryan that it’s good; and for the writers, and for all of us actually. The first one did so well, people loved it so much. I think they really put the time in on the script. I’m just so excited.”
So are we tbh.
More as we have it.
Here’s the first trailer for the movie, if you’ve not caught it yet:
