After the huge success of Guardians of the Galaxy, it’s safe to say the world wants another fun comic book movie, and next to Ant Man, Fox’s Deadpool just might be that movie. With Ryan Reynolds set to reprise his role from X-Men Origins: Wolverine, there were some people wondering how it would all work (considering he had no mouth by the end of the movie). A cool bit of casting news seems to be putting some of those worries to rest.
HBO’s Silicon Valley star T.J. Miller is in talks to play the demented subconscious of Deadpool, who is always known for breaking the fourth wall in the comic book and talking to the reader. Could this mean T.J. will be talking to the audience directly as Deadpool, perhaps waxing poetic about his love for Bea Arthur?
“Deadpool” will have a comedic edge lacking in most super-serious superhero movies, and the role Miller has been offered serves as an additional comic voice to compliment Deadpool, who often breaks the fourth wall and speaks directly to the audience.
Additionally, Ed Skrein (who some of you may remember from a short stint as Daario Naharis on Game of Thrones and his recent casting in The Transporter reboot) is also rumored to be up for a role in Deadpool, but the character isn’t yet known.
