DEADPOOL 2 Casts Its Villain In Jack Kesy
Time will tell how Donald and Stephen Glover’s animated foray with Deadpool will bode. For now though, a June 1, 2018 release date looms for 20th Century Fox’s R-rated Marvel successor, Deadpool 2 following last year’s hit with Ryan Reynolds returning to star.
Thusly, news from Deadline confirms the addition of The Strain series and upcoming Death Wish co-star, actor Jack Kesy for the likely role of Black Tom Cassidy, a noted X-Men antagonist who can manipulate and bond with plant life as well as charge energy through a shillelagh – or a wooden-like walking stick (I can hear Wade Wilson’s shameless cripple jokes already.)
Josh Brolin is time-traveling supersoldier Cable while actress Zazie Beetz debuts the role of luck-bending killer Domino. Stephen Kapcic will return to voice-over X-Men member Colossus next to actress Brianna Hildebrand reprising as Negasonic Teenage Warhead. Morena Baccarin will return as Vanessa, Wilson’s love interest.
David Leitch is directing from a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Reynolds returns next to the big screen in Patrick Hughes’s The Hitman’s Bodyguard opening August 18 from Lionsgate.
