3 Characters Make Their Return For Deadpool 2
With Pop Culture Pipe Bomb recently reporting on the return of everyone’s favourite Merc With a Mouth. Deadpool 2 writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have also let slip to Collider that fan favourites Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand) and Colossus (Stefan Kapicic) will also be expected to make a return:
WERNICK: I can’t say how much they are…
REESE: I think we can say. Yeah, they’ll be in the sequel.
WERNICK: Yeah, they’ll make at least an appearance.
With 20th Century Fox still keeping mum on the casting of time-traveling Cable and Domino, It is unknown what capacity Negasonic and Cable will play with the arguably more exciting characters needing room to establish themselves in the sequel as they make their live-action debut. But at least the writers confirmation will put some comic book fans minds at ease that the sullen teenage X-Man and heroic Russian will be back to annoy and help Ryan Reynolds’ Wade Wilson in equal measures for another movie.
Speaking of help, Reese & Wernick also revealed in a FaceBook Live Q&A with Nerdist that Wilson’s comedic Cab Driver Dopinder (Karan Soni) will also pop-up once again, with Wernick admitting that “the relationship between Dopinder and Deadpool was the most fun for me.”
It’s probably safe to assume that Dopinder may be kept out of harms way but with Deadpool 2 looking to go bigger than its predecessor. We may see the Cab Driver dodging bullets in an effort to assist his favourite fare and protect his livelihood at the same time.
Better you than me Dopinder.
