Moving on after the confirmation of Ryan Reynolds’ “Deadpool,” comes news on other stars who will serve as his supporting cast members. “Transformers: Age of Extinction” star T. J. Miller is set to join with “Game of Thrones” actor Ed Skrein, who is being sought out for the villain role. Read on to know more about the details of this scoop.
The petition for this one guy in the X-Men character to have his own stand-alone movie has long been underway into the news. It started off with the demands coming from the fans and then rumors started to pop up. Eventually, the rumors became strong speculations, and finally, everybody got the confirmation that Ryan Reynolds will be starring in his own movie as the witty and lethal “Deadpool.” The plans for the production go onwards with Tim Miller appointed for the movie’s helming duties. But as of late, Fox is searching for more actors to star alongside Reynolds and they are eyeing “Transformers: Age of Extinction’s” T. J. Miller for the supporting role and quite possibly “Game of Thrones” alum Ed Skrein for the villain role.
According to Screen Rant, the “Deadpool” movie is expected to be as humorous as its main character is in the comic books. Compared to the other stories in the X-Men universe that have a serious tone, “Deadpool’s” will be different as it is expected to have a comedic-action approach. For that, Miller is the addition to that laughable ensemble that Reynolds is leading. Slashfilm added that he is “to compliment Deadpool, who often breaks the fourth wall and speaks directly to the audience,” as initial sources would reveal it, but fans are heavily speculating that his role will be heavier than a hilarious extra. They are speculating that Miller is up for Jack Hammer’s, a.k.a. The Weasel, role who is Deadpool’s worthy best friend, sidekick and arms supplier.
Moreover, Fox is also eyeing “Game of Thrones” Daario Naharis actor Ed Skrein for the main villain role. There isn’t much to go by for his involvement except for the part that he will serve well to be an action-oriented villain. Be that as it may, he will prove to be a cunning, stunt splaying adversary who will fight against Deadpool once it reaches theaters on Feb. 12, 2016.
