“Into the Badlands” and “Iron Fist” star Lewis Tan has confirmed he will be playing the X-Force mercenary Shatterstar in the upcoming “Deadpool” sequel.
In the comics, Shatterstar is a genetically engineered, time-traveling and dimension-hopping warrior from Mojoworld who became a founding member of X-Force. He’s also gay in the comics, a decision his original creator initially railed against but has since changed his tune on.
Tan joins the long confirmed Josh Brolin as Cable and Zazie Beets as Domino along with the more recently confirmed Terry Crews as Bedlam in the group of X-Force heroes.
“Deadpool 2” is slated to open May 18th.
