Which Other Marvel Characters Are Set To Appear In The Deadpool Movie?

Coming to you from this weekend’s New York Comic-Con, just rather indirectly*, here’s the dish on which Marvel universe characters you can expect to see in the promised Deadpool movie. I can tell you that there’s definitely one guest star lined up that really took me by surprise.

Will it be spoiling anything for you if I share this info? Only if you’re one of those determined purists who never watches a trailer, looks at a poster or reads the IMDB listings. And there’s some names I’ve been asked not to pass on at all because, apparently, that character appears only very late into the story.

So, no. I don’t think is capital-S Spoiler material at all. All the same, you might choose to LOOK AWAY NOW and stay pure. Ish.

Of course, some of the characters are very closely associated with Deadpool anyway. There’s Blind Al, Deadpool’s sort-of-roommate, and Patch, the barman-come-mercenary dispatcher who gives Deadpool his jobs. I’m sure you were already expecting those. Then there’s several Weapon-X characters, including (but not limited to) Wyre, Ajax, Sluggo and Garrison Kane.

Wade Wilson’s love affair with Vanessa Carlysle is apparently a key part of the story, though I’ve been promised that she’s never seen in her Copycat guise and there’s no indication she’s a mutant at all. But this won’t be a mutant-shy production…

…because one of the X-Men appears. Can you guess which one? Place your bets now, ladies and gentlemen.

It’s an X-Man we’ve already seen on the big screen. Twice. Played by the same actor each time. Maybe they’ll get him back for this too. Do you know who it is yet? It’s none other than Piotr Rasputin. It’s Colossus.

Will it be a blink-and-you-miss-it cameo? I asked, and was told:

Nope. He is in more than one scene and has got some stuff to do.

Will they get Daniel Cudmore back to reprise the role? Well, it’s early days – there’s still no director actually signed, and some chance that the film will not actually make it into production – but I bet somebody’s at least had an informal chat with the actor. Here’s a mission for any bloggers doing a Breaking Dawn set visit in the coming months: get Cudmore on the record.

I’ve also been told that the Wolverine: X-Men Origins version of Wade Wilson as a Weapon X project makes… um… a special appearance. in the screenplay. They had to deal with it somehow, right? And what they’ve done is oh-so-Deadpool.

Can’t wait to find out just what that actually means. Ball’s in your court, Mr. Reynolds.
