Rumor: Pennywise Actor Bill Skarsgard is in Deadpool 2
The new Deadpool 2 trailer has given us all sorts of reveals, including the fact that Terry Crews will actually be in the movie. Another actor, however, is said to be in the background of the trailer, and that’s IT’s new Pennywise, Bill Skarsgard.
According to Omega Underground, Skarsgard is actually part of the cast, and it’s possible that he’s in the shot where Deadpool and Domino are standing alongside Crews’ character on the back of a plane. If you look at Deadpool’s left, there’s a funny-looking character there that some are suspecting is Chamber from the comics. Of course, we’re only seeing the top of his face, but he could very well be Skarsgard.
It’s probably worth noting that Skarsgard had appeared in director David Leitch’s Atomic Blonde last year, so he already has a connection to the film. Eddie Marsan, who was also in that movie, will also be appearing in Deadpool 2 as well.
As of now, Skarsgard’s name isn’t included in the cast list for Deadpool 2, but even Terry Crews’ name wasn’t, and it was confirmed that it was in fact him that we see in the trailer. Hopefully this was done to make the reveal of more characters exciting. It’s also confirmed that the movie also does include fan-favorite Shatterstar.
I think Skarsgard is actually a good actor, and I would love to see more of him onscreen as himself. Though his father may be part of the MCU, and his brother the villain for Green Lantern, I’m excited to see what he would bring to the world of Deadpool. That is, if Skarsgard is confirmed to be in the movie. That guy behind Domino could very well be someone else.
Catch/don’t catch Bill Skarsgard in Deadpool 2 which comes out May 18.
