Deadpool Casting
[RIDGE] Any ethnicity, early 30s to early 50s. Big, muscular, dangerous, violent, vain, insecure and more than a bit of a dick…. but with a sense of humor. He is not a psychopath, he’s practical but morally neutral—he doesn’t enjoy torturing people, he just doesn’t care. ROLE REQUIRES THREE SEQUEL OPTIONS.

Right off the bat we have what seems to be a villain character – and what’s more it seems that the part may have already been taken. A reporter from The Wrap claims that this is the role that Ed Skrein was hired to play when he joined the Deadpool production last month. Back then, I guessed that Skrein could possibly be playing T-Ray, a psychopathic mercenary and one of Deadpool’s main antagonists, but this description has me changing my tune a bit. Instead, I think that this character may be Francis a.k.a. Ajax, who was one of the primary figures in the medical experiments that turned Wade Wilson into Deadpool. The "vain" and "insecure" parts of the description are spot on – though I think there is an argument to be made that Francis really does like torturing and killing people. It may all come down to the movie’s interpretation of the character.
