New Deadpool 2 photos tease the line-up of X-Force mutants: What's Bill Skarsgård's role and powers?
Ahead of the film's release, promotions are in full swing with the 20th Century Fox once again resorting to creative marketing, releasing photos via the Twitter account of Peter W.
Avengers: Infinity War might be on everyone's mind right now, but let's not forget to make space for the Merc with a Mouth, who cruises into theaters on May 18 with Deadpool 2. Ahead of the film's release, however, promotions are in full swing with the 20th Century Fox once again resorting to creative marketing in the form of the wildly popular Twitter account of Peter W.
Created for one of the early breakout characters from Deadpool 2, the TweetFeed is handled by actor Rob Delaney, who latest joined the X-Force as a rather ordinary guy with no superhero powers.
The frequent dose of humor and banter asides, the official Peter W social media page, however, recently released a bunch of on-set pictures, teasing what would be the first glimpse at the entire line-up of the mutant strike team.
And guess who finally made an appearance amongst the bunch of mutants - 'It' star Bill Skarsgård, whose role as the acid-spitting Zeitgeist was finally confirmed in the suggestive photo caption.
"Watch out for Zeitgeist’s acid breath! It’ll getchya if his kindness doesn’t kill you first! (Seriously. SUCH a nice guy)," the cheeky post read alongside a picture of Skarsgård's character, who first made an appearance in 2001’s X-Force #116.
The remaining pictures offered a glimpse of other X-Force members, who come May 18, will be joining the titular team that is being assembled by Ryan Reynolds-played Deadpool.
"Shatterstar is a super good looking, karate-fighting alien from SPACE. And one member of the team Susan WON’T be meeting," Delaney shared in the captions, revealing a look at Lewis Tan's character and the iconic outfit for upcoming Fox movie.
And teasing Terry Crews' photos, the Deadpool 2 actor added: "Meet Bedlam. It’s hard to not feel inadequate around a man with muscles for muscles and electricity powers. But Susan assures me that I’m great just the way I am! #LoveMyWife #MortalWifeMortalLife"
Directed by David Leitch, Deadpool 2 sees a mix of new faces and returning actors including Ryan Reynolds (Wade Wilson), Morena Baccarin (Vanessa), T.J. Miller (Weasel), Stefan Kapicic (Colossus), and Karan Soni (Dopinder).
