‘Deadpool 2’ Movie Update: Actor Ed Skrein Wants Taskmaster for the Villain


As Ryan Reynolds will obviously return in the titular role in "Deadpool 2," Ed Skrein teases on who will be the new villain in the movie.

The English rapper and actor Skrein, who played Ajax in the first "Deadpool" film, is pretty much excited to see the new villain in the upcoming sequel.

The superhero film of director Tim Miller - "Deadpool 2," was publicized earlier this year, and while there's no piece of information which heroes and villains will be joining the motion picture, actor Skrein talked about his personal favorite, Collider reported.

Skrein said that the Taskmaster (fictional supervillain) is a fun character. And seeing the Taskmaster and Reynolds' "Deadpool" together is so funny. Skrein added that the Taskmaster is also mercenary like "Deadpool," but the Taskmaster is a mercenary without morals - that could come up "Deadpool" and Taskmaster's funny collision in the film, IGN reported.

Skrein also made it known that the Taskmaster character is so hilarious. From the skull head, the hood, and his superpower - the Taskmaster can imitate anyone's fighting style. It will be phenomenal to see Taskmaster battling "Deadpool."

But, there have been no official words yet from the production of the film that the Taskmaster will come and be the anti-hero.

However, Cable, most commonly in association with the X-Men, is already regarded as the unconventional hero's main villain in the upcoming "Deadpool 2." As director Tim Miller has already asserted publicly the high probability of Cable in the upcoming sequel, Ecumenical News reported.

Actors Ron Perlman and Stephen Lang declared that they are interested in the role of Cable.

On the other hand, it is not only the cast and characters of the film that are not yet affirmed, but even the release date of "Deadpool 2" stays unclear, Parent Herald reported.

"Deadpool 2" is slated to hit theaters within the late months of 2017 or early 2018.
