Deadpool and X-Force have a long, complicated history, with more twists than fans might think. Here’s what fans need to know for Deadpool 2.
X-Force has changed a lot over the years, but the lineup to be seen in the new film will feature Deadpool (obviously), Domino, Bedlam, Zietgeist, Shatterstar, Peter, and possibly Surge. On top of that, the X-Men that appeared in the first Deadpool film, Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead, will also be making appearances.
Cable is no slouch, though, so expect there to be some pitched battles amid all the fourth-wall-breaking jokes. A complicated figure, Cable has played both sides of the hero/villain dynamic. Much like Deadpool, he has a crazy backstory, traveling through time from the future.
A soldier and a man of action, Cable was conceived as a foil to Charles Xavier. He also comes from an alternate future timeline where he is the son of Cyclops and the clone of Jean Grey, meaning he inherited some crazy powers including telepathy and telekinesis. Cable is a force to be reckoned with, so the X-Force is going to need all the help they can get to take him down and save the young mutant he’s after.
Here are some Crazy Facts Fans Need To Know About The Deadpool :
1. Deadpool 2 was inspired by DC’s Deathstroke: Rob Liefeld, the creator of Deadpool, modelled Deadpool’s look and even weapons (two ninja swords sheathed behind his back) on Deathstroke, a much more grim character who was a Teen Titans villain but is now better known as Batman’s adversary. Both wear similar costumes, both are mercenaries, both are master swordsmen and both fluctuate between good and bad. Slade Wilson became Wade Wilson. He was both an inspiration and a parody.
2. Deadpool is Canadian: Ryan Reynolds and Deadpool are both Canadian. This is just one of the reasons why Reynolds is perfectly suited to the role.
3. Merc With a Mouth: Deadpool has this peculiar but cool nickname because he will not shut up. He continuously keeps mocking other characters, pop culture and life in general. If he were not such a great fighter, his motor mouth would be his biggest weapon. He once beat Galactus, who is one of the most powerful beings in Marvel universe, by just talking.
4. Deadpool is insane: In the comics, at least, Wade Wilson goes crazy after he becomes a mutant. Cancer has spread throughout his body and it is the tumours in his brain which makes him what he is. He also has incredible healing powers and they are what keeps him alive.
5. He is very sad inside: Yes, his frivolity is a mask he wears to guard his inner self against not just others, but even himself. There are a few moments when he lets the mask slip and he is overpowered by a bout of depression.
6. He is really smart: Deadpool 2 is not a mastermind in the vein of the Joker (although both are similarly insane), but he has a brilliant strategic mind.
7. Ripping through the fourth wall: He is known for breaking the fourth wall of fiction and directly addressing the audiences. Deadpool knows he is inside a comic-book or film universe and is amused by the thought.
8. Captain America is Deadpool’s idol: It may seem unbelievable, but Deadpool 2 finds Captain America with his sense of righteousness and justice endlessly inspiring even if he does not subscribe to those ideals. Cap is the only superhero Deadpool respects, and one cannot help wonder if his respect is ironic.
9. He loves kids and animals: Deadpool has got a soft spot for kids and animals. And doesn’t that just make us love him more?
10. He is basically immortal: Thanks to Deadpool’s mutant powers and healing abilities, Deadpool will continue to annoy and entertain us practically forever.
11. DOMINO WAS CREATED BY A GOVERNMENT SUPER SOLDIER PROJECT
