Ranveer Singh voices Ryan Reynolds’s wisecracking superhero in the Hindi dubbed version of “Deadpool 2.” The film is a sequel to “Deadpool,” released in 2016, which went on to become the highest grossing R-rated film of all time in the United States of America.
The “Deadpool” series is centred on Wade Wilson, a former mercenary who acquires accelerated healing after undergoing mutation and later becomes a masked vigilante named Deadpool. “Merc with a mouth”, as the character is known, is popular for his foul-mouthed wry humour.
Ranveer Singh confirmed the news on Twitter on Monday.
David Leitch’s “Deadpool 2” features the superhero forming a team of mutants named X-Force to protect a young mutant named Russel from the villainous time-travelling soldier Cable. The film, also starring Josh Brolin, Morena Baccarin, Julian Dennison, Zazie Beetz and TJ Miller, will be released on May 18. A second Hindi trailer for the film, with irreverent Mumbai street lingo in Singh’s voice, has been released.
