Gonzalez will play Janos Quested a.k.a Riptide, a mutant with the ability to spin his body at incredible speeds. He can also generate calcium growth in his bones which causes spikes to protrude from his skin.

These abilities when combined together allow him to shoot his bone spikes at high enough speeds to punch through steel. Matthew Vaughn is directing the project and shooting is currently underway in the UK.
