Peter W. Introduces The Members Of Team X-Force

Peter W., played by Paul Delaney, is a new character cooked up for ‘Deadpool 2’ and is a regular guy who just happens to answer an ad placed by Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) and Weasel (T.J. Miller) looking to assemble a team, which turns out to be X-Force.  In his Twitter profile, Peter described himself as “Husband. Experienced Apiarist (Beekeeper). I like sports and grilling on my deck.”

Everyone knew Domino and Cable would premiere in ‘Deadpool 2’, played by Zazie Beetz and Josh Brolin and that Fox was planning an ‘X-Force’ movie, but most were unprepared to learn that the team would actually appear in this sequel.  “Peter” took to his Twitter to give fans an introduction to the team, in his unique, sunny manner.  Luckily he brought his trusty Nikon!

He then gives an up-close and personal look at each hero, starting with Zazie Beetz’ Domino.

Next is Bedlam, played by Terry Crews.

While Peter seems intimidated by Bedlam’s muscles, he likewise feels inferior to the pretty Shatterstar, played by Lewis Tan.

‘It”s Bill Skarsgård portrays Zeitgeist, who is described as having “acid breath.”

Bedlam first appeared in 1995’s ‘Factor X’ #1.  He has the power to shut down electro-magnetic machinery, scan for energy fields and disable people by shorting out their brains.  Of course, he may be different in the movie.  Crews is a familiar face.  He stars on FOX’s sitcom ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ and frequently appears in both comedy and action movies, including the ‘Expendables’ franchise.

Shatterstar is one of the most famous members of X-Force.  He has good luck powers, super agility and the power to channel energy through his swords.  Like Domino and Cable, he was created by Rob Liefeld and debuted around the same time in the pages of ‘New Mutants’ #99 in 1991.  Lewis Tan had a role on ‘Iron Fist’ and stars on the show ‘Into the Badlands’.

Zeitgeist was introduced in ‘X-Force’ #116, which was a complete overhaul of the book, with brand new characters, created by writer Peter Milligan and artist Mike Allred.  This team had no connection to the previous incarnation of the team… and very little to do with the larger Marvel Universe.  Of course, Skarsgård is best known for playing the evil clown Pennywise in ‘It’.  He starred on ‘Hemlock Grove’ and will also star in the upcoming Stephen King-based series ‘Castle Rock’.  He also has a role in the upcoming TV movie ‘Ascendant’ a reboot of the ‘Divergent’ theatrical movies.

Finally, Domino apparently stole Peter’s camera and snapped this pic of the everyman with Bedlam in the background.

Rob Delaney may be best known for the Amazon series ‘Catastrophe’.  He also previously appeared on ‘Key & Peele’ and other TV and web series.

Are you excited to see X-Force in ‘Deadpool 2’?

Directed by David Leitch, ‘Deadpool 2’ will see Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Leslie Uggams, Stafan Kapicic, and Brianna Hildebrand reprise their roles from the original alongside newcomers Josh Brolin, Zazie Beetz and Jack Kesy. The film is due to arrive in theaters on May 18, 2018.

Jason Motes

Jason’s earliest memory is of watching ‘Batman,’ followed shortly by a memory of playing Batman & Robin with a friend, which entailed running outside in just their underwear and towels as capes. When adults told them they couldn’t run around outside in their underwear, both boys promptly whipped theirs off and ran around in just capes. Jason’s father gamely agreed to read him comic books as bedtime stories instead of ‘Snow White.’ (Super Friends being his favorite.) Jason saw all of the original Star Wars movies (and Indiana Jones and Superman and Star Trek…) in the theaters. Yes, he is old. And grew up in the most GEEKTASTIC decade ever, the 80s, devouring a steady diet of GI Joe, Transformers, Masters of the Universe, Princess of Power and (best of all) Jem! (It totally counts as sci fi! They had a sentient computer that projected holograms!) Jason has studied literature, journalism, film history and has a degree in creative writing (and a minor in psychology) from the University of South Alabama. He has worked as a technical writer and proofreader. These days, most of his creative energy goes into his blog and writing for this site! He lives with the cutest puppies ever.
