Deadpool 2 will reportedly introduce three more X-Force characters

The X-Force universe will have its big bang in Deadpool 2.

We already knew that the upcoming sequel will prominently feature two notable members of the Marvel comics team with Cable (Josh Brolin) and Domino (Zazie Beetz), but it sounds like a post-credits scene could introduce us to three more. It would serve as a teaser for the X-Force movie, in which Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) and Cable are said to co-headline.

According to, 20th Century Fox is casting for Sunspot, Feral, and Shatterstar. In the comics, all three have served as members of X-Force, and Sunspot previously appeared in X-Men: Days of Future Past. However, it seems like Adan Canto won't reprise the role in the X-Force movie universe.

Sunspot is a mutant who can absorb light to increase his strength and fly. Feral has a feline appearance with sharp claws, fangs, and increased senses and agility. And Shatterstar, the son of X-Men heroes Dazzler and Longshot, has hollow bones that allow him to be lighter.

Although we'll probably only get a fleeting glimpse of the trio in the post-credits scene, it does mean that we'll probably find out who will play those characters in the X-Force movie sooner than we expected.

While we wait for more details, check out the weird history of X-Force.
