* Note: This roster only includes the currently announced casts and characters.
Deadpool 2 Cast: Ryan Reynolds, starring Deadpool
The very first guy we have to cover is the protagonist himself: Wade Wilson, a.k.a the Deadpool, starred by Ryan Reynolds. Ryan Reynolds also starred the Deadpool in the first movie, and he totally captured the essence of this anti-hero character and his hilarious sarcasm. It is told that he spent 11 years to think and immerse himself as a true Deadpool. For this character, he tried hard to fulfill the expectation, especially from fans. And ultimately he succeeded in his role as Deadpool and got nominated as one of the best actor.
Deadpool – Wade Wilson in Marvel Comics
Before becoming Deadpool, Wade Wilson used to be a professional mercenary. Later on he joined the project Weapon X in Canada and gained superhuman power, including the Healing Factor similar to Wolverine. Thanks to the Healing Factor, Wade’s cells regenerate so fast that cancer can’t kill him and he can live literally forever.
Deadpool is a professional and dangerous assassin with superhuman power. At some point, he was considered to be the strongest character in Marvel, like in an issue in which Deadpool went on a killing spree, slaying entire Marvel characters. He is also famous for his blabbering mouth, his annoying trait and especially his sarcastic nature. As in Marvel Universe, not many people can comprehend his annoying and disturbing sarcasm.

In Deadpool movie, Wade Wilson was still a professional mercenary as a normal person. Later on, he discovered his cancer and agreed to join an experiment in which he could cure his cancer and possess superhuman abilities. However in truth, this experiment, conducted by Ajax and Angel Dust, was to create “super slave”. Turned out, the experiment did not happen like what Ajax expects; he “killed” Wade and abandoned Wade’s body behind. Of course, Wade didn’t stay dead; he became Deadpool and went on his revenge on Ajax. By the end of the movie, Deadpool succeeded in his vengeance and noted viewers that there will be sequel.

They gave birth to Nathan Summers, an alpha mutant with powerful telepathy and telekinesis.
When he was still a baby, Apocalypse captured him and injected him with the Techno-Organic Virus which can kill him quickly.

Deadpool 2 Cast: Leslie Uggams, starring Blind Al

Blind Al, or Althea, is quite a mysterious figure since not much has been revealed about her, except for the fact that there are many people want her dead. Once Wade Wilson was hired to kill her in Zaire; however, he spared her despite killing everyone else. Later on when Wade Wilson became Deadpool, he captured her and kept her in his place.
Blind Al and Deadpool have quite a peculiar relationship. Though Blind Al was his prisoner, she was more like his friend, housekeeper, and mother-like figure. At times, Deadpool could be quite cruel to her, but on the other hand, Blind Al was not afraid of him and she could talk back to Deadpool if he went on his sarcasm.
At a certain point, Deadpool felt guilty for what he had done to Blind Al, he freed her and brought her far away from him. Later on, it seems that Blind Al and Deadpool still contact with each other.
