On Wednesday, Fox finally dropped the first good look at Deadpool 2 footage and revealed a brief shot what looked like a version of the X-Force or Six Pack. Terry Crews was the easiest of the group to identify but the other two have been a bit harder as their faces were slightly obscured.
However, that didn’t stop us to consider that the one between Domino and Wade could be Swedish actor Bill Skarsgård. Bill might be best known for playing Pennywise in the It reboot but also worked with Deadpool 2 director David Leitch in Atomic Blonde. We also pointed out that Bill’s fellow Atomic Blonde co-star Eddie Marsan already has a secret role in the film.
Looks like @DavidMLeitch is using a bunch of his ATOMIC BLONDE actors for DEADPOOL 2. @eddiemarsan was already revealed and it looks like one of the unknown mutants is indeed his co-star Bill Skarsgård. pic.twitter.com/Ll1qNwFiG9

Today, Deadpool and Deadpool 2 actor Karan Soni, who plays Dopinder liked our Tweet which might be seen as some sort of confirmation. Considering he’d likely know who is in the film being part of the main returning cast.
UPDATE: Soni has since removed his like but we were quick enough to grab a screenshot.
The character is seemingly up for debate but some have suggested based on the costume it could be Zeigest, a mutant that vomits acid. The X-Men character’s hero name is German of origin, Bill played an East German in Atomic Blonde.
Deadpool 2 is set for release on May 18th, 2018.
