The breakout star of Deadpool 2 is clearly Rob Delaney's Peter, the dude who seemingly has no superpowers, but saw the X-Force audition ad and decided to try out. Not only does he seem like he'll be a hilarious addition to the movie, but he's also become the face of the marketing campaign in a way. Once the final trailer dropped, Peter got his own Twitter account and began interacting with the main star, Ryan Reynolds.
Today, Peter decided to introduce us to the different members of X-Force, the mostly mutant group assembled by Deadpool, which will fight against Cable (Josh Brolin). Continue on for a look at Peter's sweet photography skills. Hey, maybe that's his power!
"First day of training!" he wrote with his first of several photos. "Glad I brought my #Nikon! These are four of the hardest working people I know! #MakingMemories #XForce."
He introduces each character in turn, starting with Domino (Zazie Beetz). Also known as Neena Thurman, a mutant/mercenary with the ability to manipulate probability, otherwise known as luck. Frank Sinatra certainly had it right when he said "Luck be a lady."
Next is Bedlam (Terry Crews), who has the power to emit an electromagnetic pulse from his body, stopping any and all machines. When his powers were heightened in the comics, he was able to change a person's brain chemistry.
Shatterstar (Lewis Tan) is a mutant, who was genetically-engineered in another dimension and therefore has a heightened, well, everything: stamina, strength, healing, endurance, reflexes, and intelligence.
Lastly, there's Zeitgeist (Bill Skarsgård), who's probably got the strangest power of them all. He can spew forth acidic vomit, which can then melt through the toughest and thickest piece of steel within seconds. In the comics, he wears a protective mouthpiece, but there's no sign of one in Peter's picture. His powers first manifsted while he was making out with a girl on the beach and needless to say, it did not end well, although she did survive.
There actually might be a comic book connection with Peter, due to the fact that his name on Twitter is "Peter W." In the Marvel Universe, Peter Wisdom is a Britsh secret agent and also a mutant, who can shoot sharp and hot blades of energy from his fingertips. Could the whole nerdy white guy act be a simple charade? Is Peter a double agent tasked with learning the secrets of X-Force? We'll see next month!
You'll be able to meet Peter and the rest of the X-Force fully when Deadpool 2 arrives in theaters May 18.
