Ed Skrein (OG Daario Naharis) has been confirmed as Ajax, one of the bad dudes responsible for making Wade Wilson into Deadpool. I’m not going to post the link here, but if you Google “ajax deadpool” you can see some photos of scenes being filmed. Included in the spoilery pictures are spoilers. Also, the first look at some of the characters. SPOILER.

Psylocke/Betsy Braddock has been cast for X-Men: Apocalypse. Olivia Munn (The Newsroom) will be the purple-haired ninja with psionic and telepathic powers. In the comics, Betsy Braddock was a telepath but then there was this whole thing where her consciousness was melded with that of Kwannon and then Betsy was used as Lady Mandarin and Kwannon went back to…nevermind.

Mark Ruffalo has revealed that any Hulk solo pics are Universal property. In an interview with Collider, Ruffalo said:

“As far as a Hulk movie, a standalone Hulk movie, Marvel doesn’t really have the rights to that yet. That’s still Universal’s property, so there’s that issue. That’s a big impediment to moving forward with that. Now I don’t think that’s insurmountable, by the way, but I don’t know where it’s going from here for me.”
