Shioli Kutsuna joins the cast of David Leitch’s DEADPOOL sequel.

Deadline reports that Japanese Australian actress Shioli Kutsuna (Oh Lucy!) has joined the cast of DEADPOOL 2 in an unspecified role.

It’s not known if she’s portraying an existing comic book character or someone entirely new. One possibility is Armor, a Japanese mutant with the ability to create a psionic armor-like field around her body. Visually, it would be a cool character to see on screen, but that’s pure speculation and we’ll have to wait and see on that one.

Kutsuna will join a talented cast which includes Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, Josh Brolin as Cable, Zazie Beetz as Domino, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Stefan Kapičić as Colossus, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al and Jack Kesy as the villain, possibly Black Tom Cassidy.

“Deadpool 2” begins production later this month in Vancouver with director David Leitch and writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick for a June 1, 2018 theatrical release.
