When Deadpool hit theaters in 2016 people were ecstatic. We, the fans, finally got the Merc with the Mouth that we had always deserved. It was filled with everything we love from the comics like violence, fourth-wall-breaking, violence, bad language, violence, inappropriate jokes, and violence. Yay Violence! The film made up for the terrible version of the character from X-Men Origins: Wolverine and became a record-breaking film earning over $780 million worldwide.
The sequel, unfortunately titled Deadpool 2 (Shouldn’t we be beyond numeric sequels now?), introduced the X-Force team. However, it was all for laughs and the film leaves the door open for a more serious X-Force in the future. While Deadpool had help from Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Colossus there was supposed to be another X-character in the film, Kane. Rob Liefeld, who created Deadpool, recently shared some concept art of Kane as he could have been in the 2016 film.
In the comics, Kane was a member of Cable’s Six Pack mercenary group. During a mission, Kane lost his arms and legs and they were replaced with cybernetic parts through the Weapon X program. I think the lack of Kane in the first film is fine. Deadpool was a perfectly balanced film and there was no room for another character. However, with Cable being a big part of the second film, and remaining in Deadpool’s timeline, there’s a wide-open door for Kane to appear in a third film.
What do you think of the concept art? Would you like to see Kane in a future film? Let us know in the comments below!
