Ask ten different X-Men fans who their favourite character is, and you’ll get ten different answers. Too many characters are shoved in (possibly to appeal to as many fans as possible) without proper development, good reason, or memorable moments. Deadpool was a film that surprisingly, lived up to its hype.
The series depicts the adventures of Professor X’s son, David Haller (played by Dan Stevens of “Downton Abbey” fame), with the good Professor himself getting a mention in Season 1. Haller’s powers can be fairly easily explained — he’s a vastly powerful psychic who has to deal with having being diagnosed with schizophrenia at a young age.

The Merc with a Mouth will have plenty of crime-fighting company in Deadpool 2. Star Ryan Reynolds took to Twitter today to announce that Zazie Beetz, who plays Donald Glover’s ex-girlfriend/baby-mama on the hit FX comedy Atlanta, has joined the cast as fellow mutant mercenary Domino.
