We all the time knew that David Leitch’s Deadpool 2 was going to introduce some new main characters to the X-Males universe, as one of many first issues we ever realized concerning the sequel is that it might embody each Cable (Josh Brolin) and Domino (Zazie Beetz). Nonetheless, we by no means thought that the checklist was simply going to finish there, and the brand new trailer that was released this morning for the blockbuster confirms it. That is as a result of there may be one shot (particularly the one featured above) that appears to inform us that the film can have components for Marvel heroes G.W. Bridge and Shatterstar to play.
The second comes a couple of minute and 39 seconds into the Deadpool 2 spot, and it appears as if our heroes are about to do some sort of skydiving mission dropping out of an airborne aircraft. It is arduous to inform who it’s that’s standing in between Domino and Deadpool, nevertheless it definitely appears like Terry Crews is on the suitable dressed up as G.W. Bridge; and behind him (the actor unidentifiable) is somebody who appears a hell of so much like Shatterstar. However who precisely are these two? That is what we’re right here to go over!
Like Deadpool, Domino, and Cable, G.W. Bridge is one more creation of author Fabian Nicieza and artist Rob Liefeld, launched within the first ever difficulty of X-Force (although not truly part of the group). He is not a mutant, that means he would not have any sort of particular talents that he brings to the desk, however he’s a grasp strategist, and seasoned warrior. His backstory is tied in with Cable and Domino, as they beforehand have been a part of a mercenary group generally known as the Wild Pack (a reputation that might ultimately change to Six Pack). He finally turns into a high-ranking member of S.H.I.E.L.D., nonetheless there is no method that factor will likely be launched in a 20th Century Fox movie. Lengthy story brief, the man is a badass fighter, and will definitely be a serious asset within the area when referred to as upon in Deadpool 2.
The rough-around-the-edges Shatterstar first discovered his method into the pages of Marvel Comics only one difficulty after each Deadpool and Domino — particularly in New Mutants #99 — and was included as a key member of the X-Pressure group when it debuted shortly thereafter. Like Cable, he hails from a horrific future, however what makes him completely different is that he’s from one other dimension generally known as Mojoworld. He was not solely born into slavery, however was genetically engineered to be a robust fighter in order that he may entertain audiences as a gladiator. He is principally hardwired for loss of life and violence, outfitted with tremendous power, velocity, senses, reflexes and intelligence, and likewise has highly effective therapeutic issue. His weapon of alternative is the sword (which he usually double-wields), and he is recognized to put on a white costume and headpiece — which is clearly a giant consider what makes him recognizable within the trailer.
All of this presently stands as knowledgeable hypothesis, as neither 20th Century Fox nor the filmmakers have particularly recognized these new characters but — however the proof is strong and thrilling. Hopefully we’ll get to see extra of G.W. Bridge and Shatterstar because the advertising marketing campaign for Deadpool 2 continues, main as much as the movie’s launch on Might 18th.
