Ed Skrein Confirms He Will Play Ajax in the Deadpool Movie
Fox's Deadpool movie is causing a lot of buzz on the Internet right now, with just about every leaked shot of the Ryan Reynolds-helmed movie being scrutinized by legions of fans. The latest shot from the movie's Vancouver set has just been shared by one of Deadpool's stars, Ed Skrein, and it doesn't take a genius to figure out what it means.



That's right. Ed Skrein is playing classic Deadpool bad guy, Ajax, and we cannot wait to see how Tim Miller and co. bring him to life for the big screen. In the Marvel comics, Ajax was an enforcer at Dr. Killebrew's workshop where super soldiers, like Wade Wilson, were experimented on. Ajax used his massive size and strength to keep the lab's subjects in check, but it was Wade Wilson who eventually stood up to him, using that signature Deadpool wit to take the enforcer down a few pegs.

In other Deadpool news, a photo taken on the Deadpool set over the weekend gave us our best look yet at Wade Wilson's scarred face, which looks as though it will be far more sensitive to the comics than the stitched up look we saw Reynolds sporting for X-Men Origins: Wolverine.



Deadpool is directed by Tim Miller and stars Ryan Reynolds as the titular 'Merc with a Mouth', Morena Baccarin as Vanessa Carlysle, Ed Skrein as Ajax, and Gina Carano as Angel Dust. Deadpool is released on February 12th 2016.
