‘Deadpool 2’: X-Force Member Peter Gets Real Life Twitter Account

Peter-Deadpool-2-X-ForceDeadpool 2 released its final trailer today, and though a number of fans were happy to get a first look at Lewis Tan as Shatterstar, it’s perhaps a different character that’s taking the Internet by storm: Peter, a regular guy with no powers who just wanted to join the team, played by Rob Delaney. Now, in a genius bit of marketing, Peter has been given his very own Twitter account, and it’s exactly as dad-centric as you’d expect.

Not much is known about the unemployed Peter, but we are given hilarious insights into the wannabe superhero. For instance, did you know Peter was a bee-keeper? How about his love of the hit ’90s sitcom Friends?

Check out some more of his posts below!

Peter’s account was actually created a number of weeks before Deadpool 2 revealed the character today, but now that they have, he’s quickly gained a sizable following, amassing over 11,000 followers and even earning the blue checkmark. What do you think of Peter? Will he be the real hero of Deadpool 2? Let us know in the comments!

Directed by David Leitch, Deadpool 2 stars Ryan Reynolds as the Merc with a Mouth, Zazie Beetz as Domino, Josh Brolin as Cable, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Stefan Kapcic as Colossus, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa Carlysle, T.J. Miller as Weasel, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al and Karan Soni as Dopinder. Julian Dennison, Jack Kesy and Shioli Kutsuna are also on board in undisclosed roles.

Deadpool 2 opens in theaters on May 18, 2018.

10 X-Men That Need To Appear In The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Previous1 of 11

X-Men Marvel ComicsThe X-Men, along with Blade and Spider-Man, helped kick-start the superhero movie boom fans are still enjoying today. And unlike most, the X-Men are still going strong and maintaining the same continuity (with a few minor changes but maintaining actors) as the longest-running superhero franchise around. This year audiences will see a sequel to Deadpool, with X-Men: Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants coming in 2019. Fox is currently working on several Marvel projects, including spin-offs for Gambit, Multiple Man and Kitty Pryde.

Yet one has to wonder: is Fox trying to rush out these films into reality or are these announcement just to make sure the studio appears to be running smoothly in the chance the Disney purchase doesn’t go through? If the purchase is made official, Marvel Studios and Disney will more than likely start a new X-Men series to incorporate the characters into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

When the X-Men return home, Marvel has a chance to do something new and fresh with the property. Brighter, more comic accurate costumes, contrasting the mutants as a whole with the wider cinematic universe, but most importantly highlighting certain characters. The X-Men comics have a vast array of iconic and colorful heroes and villains to choose from yet the past X-Men films only focused on a handful of characters. Wolverine, Professor X, Magneto, Mystique, Jean Grey and Beast seemed to be the focus of the filmmakers throughout the two trilogies. Now is the time to highlight other characters (ones that the original film series sidelined) to make these X-Men characters as big of names as Wolverine is to the brand.

These are the ten X-Men that need to be introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Click Next to get started!
