Cudmore made his debut as the character in X2: X-Men United and appeared in X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: Days of Future Past. This isn’t the only bit of “X-Men” recasting going on at Fox as the roles of Jean Grey, Cyclops, and Storm were all recast with younger actors for the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse.
Ryan Reynolds will lead the film as the titular Merc with a Mouth and he is joined by T.J. Miller, Ed Skrein and Gina Carano as the mutant Angel Dust, a member of the Morlocks.
Tim Miller is set to helm the movie from a script by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Deadpool is currently scheduled for a release on February 12, 2016.
