Bill Skarsgård may have a role in the upcoming Deadpool 2. Omega Underground has done some research and a lot of signs point to him being in the film in some capacity. You’ll remember Skarsgård as playing Pennywise in the 2017 IT reboot, he also had a role in the David Leitch film Atomic Blonde. Leitch, of course, is also directing Deadpool 2 which adds some fuel to this theory.
If you look at this image closely, you can see that in between Zazie Beetz and Terry Crews there’s somebody in the back that looks like Skarsgård.
The theory as of right now is that Skarsgård most likely is playing Zeigest, a mutant that shoots acid from his mouth. He’s an Eastern German, which fits Skarsgård’s character profile in Atomic Blonde. We may see the X-Force they are going to use for the eventual film in full before the actual lineup is announced, which would be awesome. So far, it seems like the whole crew will be in the film, but we don’t have full details yet.
What do you guys think? Do you think that’s Bill Skarsgård in the background? Who do you think his character is if it is him? Tweet us your thoughts @SuperBroMovies!
