Ed Skrein Confirms He'll Play 'Ajax' In DEADPOOL

Though we've known Ed Skrein would play a villainous character in Fox's Deadpool for a while now, the actor has confirmed via the following Tweet that the particular villain will be Ajax. In the comics, Ajax (aka Francis) was also a part of the Weapon X programme and, like Wade Wilson, was experimented on by the sadistic Dr. Killebrew. He's a formidable foe for the Merc With a Mouth, possessing enhanced strength, speed and agility... not to mention the fact that he's a remorseless killing machine.

Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life. Directed by Tim Miller, while starring Ryan Reynolds (Wade Wilson), Morena Baccarin (Vanessa Carlysle), T.J. Miller (Weasel), with Ed Skrein, and Brianna Hildebrand (Ellie Phimister), the much-hyped Deadpool is scheduled to open in theaters on February 12, 2016.
