Three more actors have been cast in the roles of superheroes for the upcoming X-Men film, Wolverine: Origins from 20th Century Fox. Ryan Reynolds will take on the role of Deadpool, while rapper will.i.am will play John Wraith, and Taylor Kitsch will be donning the trenchcoat as Gambit.
The latest casting news fills out an already impressive cast for the film, which will see Hugh Jackman reprise his role as the adamantium-outfitted hero, Liev Schreiber as Sabretooth and Danny Huston as Colonel William Stryker.
Marvel has apparently wanted to include the character of Gambit for some time in the X-Men films, but with the plethora of mutants in the recent three instalments, it was judged that there wasn’t enough screen time for him. The film is set for a 2009 release.
