Pennywise is in the X-Force now.
"Deadpool 2" released a kick-ass new trailer this week, including the first glimpses of the new X-Force characters.
Josh Brolin's Cable and Zazie Beetz's Domino are heavily featured in the trailer, alongside Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson/Deadpool. But you can also spot more newbies played by Terry Crews, Julian Dennison, Shioli Kutsuna, and "It" villain Bill Skarsgard.

Yes, yes. yes.
As the trailer explains...
Deadpool: "We're gonna form a super-duper f*cking group. We need 'em tough, morally flexible, and young enough to carry their own franchise for 10-20 years. We will be known as ... X-Force."
Domino: "Isn't that a little derivative?"
Deadpool: "You're absolutely right."
So who is who in this new super-duper group?
Terry Crews is playing Jesse Aaronson/Bedlam, Shioli Kutsuna appears to be Surge, with Rob Delaney possibly as Pete Wisdom. Bill Skarsgard's role is more of a question mark, but the running theory seems to be Rictor.
Here's speculation from /FILM:
"One option is Rictor, a mutant who once believed Cable was responsible for his father's death, when in reality it was Cable's clone Stryfe who was behind it. This eventually led him to team up with X-Force, where he met Shatterstar (who is the fourth X-Force team member on the helicopter, perhaps played by Lewis Tan). The two struck up a close friendship, which turned into a secret romance.
The other possibility is Solo, a special forces-trained teleporter who was hired by G.W. Bridge to join the Six Pack alongside mutants Hammer, Domino, Anaconda and Constrictor to take down Cable.
Other guesses out on the internet include mutants named Chamber and Zeitgeist, but we'll just have to wait and see who Bill Skarsgard is playing."
Here's more on Rictor from ScreenRant:
"It's unclear which character Skarsgaard is playing, but the color scheme of his outfit suggests he could be X-Force's Rictor. Rictor is able to generate powerful vibrational waves, blasting enemies off their feet and triggering destructive earthquakes. He was a member of the first X-Force team.
Curiously enough, Rictor is also one of Marvel's few prominent gay characters; he's well-known for his relationship with X-Force colleague Shatterstar. Given Shatterstar is confirmed to appear in Deadpool 2, it's possible this could actually be a plot point."
Very cool. "Deadpool 2" also stars Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, and T.J. Miller as Weasel. The movie is scheduled for release on May 18.
