CBMB: Deadpool Being Set Up to Expand The X-Men Universe

By Muuka Muyumba

Reports have leaked Deadpool’s casting rundown for various roles in the upcoming wacky incarnation of the beloved mutant anti-hero.

Yesterday, we learned that Gina Carano would be playing Morlock Angel Dust in the Ryan Reynolds-led film, and now we know a bit more about who else will be featured in the film.

[RIDGE] Any ethnicity, early 30s to early 50s. Big, muscular, dangerous, violent, vain, insecure and more than a bit of a dick…. but with a sense of humor. He is not a psychopath, he’s practical but morally neutral—he doesn’t enjoy torturing people, he just doesn’t care. ROLE REQUIRES THREE SEQUEL OPTIONS.

[LINDSAY] Any ethnicity, 20s, attractive and worldly. Smart, tough, beautiful but a little bit broken. Nothing has ever been easy for her and she’s developed a thick skin and cynical outlook. But she’s not a victim—she may not have a great life but she’s holding it together and does what she needs to get by. She’s got a great sense of humor but it leans heavily towards irony and sarcasm. ROLE REQUIRES THREE SEQUEL OPTIONS.

[SIMON] Any ethnicity, late 20s to early 40s. Quirky, great sense of humor. Smart, funny, but more than a little bit slippery. Fast talker, always looking to make a buck. He looks out for himself first and foremost, but reveals loyalty at the end of the day. ROLE REQUIRES THREE SEQUEL OPTIONS.

[SHIRLIE] African American, late 60s to early 80s. Worldly, great sense of comedic timing, sarcastic, dry, funny. ROLE REQUIRES THREE SERIES OPTIONS.

[KATHY] Any ethnicity, early to mid teens. World weary, great sense of comedic timing, sarcastic, droll sense of humor. ROLE REQUIRES THREE SERIES OPTIONS.

[KEREN] Any ethnicity, early 20s to late 30s. Serious, big, tough. ROLE REQUIRES THREE SERIES OPTIONS

[ALBERT] Any ethnicity, early 30s to early 50s. Big, muscular, dangerous. ROLE REQUIRES THREE SERIES OPTIONS

Of note, the last four roles require ‘three series options’ as opposed to ‘three sequel options’, suggesting that these characters will not just be in Deadpool, but potentially more mutant films in the future. Previously rumored additions to the cast, T.J. Miller and Ed Skrein are said to portray Simon and Ridge. However, none of the character descriptions give any greater insight into whether these may be previously established X-Men universe characters.

Another report has Daniel Cudmore out as Colossus, which might suggest greater involvement in the film for a better actor. Deadpool hits theaters on February 12, 2016 starring Reynolds as the Merc with the Mouth.
